The dijet cross section in photoproduction has been measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 38.6 pb-1. The events were required to have a virtuality of the incoming photon, Q2, of less than 1 GeV2 and a photon-proton centre-of-mass energy in the range 134 < Wγp < 277 GeV. Each event contains at least two jets satisfying transverse-energy requirements of ET jet1 > 14 GeV and ETjet2 > 11 GeV and pseudorapidity requirements of -1 < ηjet1,2 < 2.4. The measurements are compared to next-to-leading-order QCD predictions. The data show particular sensitivity to the density of partons in the photon, allowing the validity of the current parameterisations to be tested.

Abstract

The dijet cross section in photoproduction has been measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 38.6 pb-1. The events were required to have a virtuality of the incoming photon, Q2, of less than 1 GeV2 and a photon-proton centre-of-mass energy in the range 134 < Wγp < 277 GeV. Each event contains at least two jets satisfying transverse-energy requirements of ET jet1 > 14 GeV and ETjet2 > 11 GeV and pseudorapidity requirements of -1 < ηjet1,2 < 2.4. The measurements are compared to next-to-leading-order QCD predictions. The data show particular sensitivity to the density of partons in the photon, allowing the validity of the current parameterisations to be tested.
