Proton-Antiproton Elastic Scattering and Total Cross Section at the CERN Collider

  • Bert Koene


Measurements of elastic scattering at low momentum transfer and of the total cross section were performed during the first physics run of the CERN proton-antiproton Collider at \(\sqrt s\) = 540 GeV. Data were taken during about 15 h of running time with an antiproton bunch of ~ 4 × 109 particles colliding against a proton bunch of ~ 5 × 1010 particles. The machine optics in the intersection region was the same as for normal SPS operation. The nominal luminosity was of the order of 1026 cm −2 s−1.
