Measurement of light-cone wave functions by diffractive dissociation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Diffractive dissociation of particles can be used to study their light-cone wave function. Results from Fermilab experiment E791 for diffractive dissociation of 500 GeV/c π- mesons into di-jets show that the qq̄? light-cone asymptotic wave function describes the data well for Q2 ∼ 10 (GeV/c)2 or more. Similar studies of the light-cone wave function of other hadrons and of the photon are discussed.
