Abstract

We calculate the diffraction slope BD for diffractive deep inelastic scattering. We find a counterintuitive rise of BD in going from exclusive diffractive excitation of vector mesons to excitation of continuum states with M2Q2. For the small-mass continuum we predict a rapid variation of BD with M2 on a scale of mV2 and a sharp drop of BD for a small-mass continuum above the vector meson excitation.
