Photoproduction of heavy hadrons

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We discuss a model for the photoproduction of hadrons that belong to families of bound states of heavy quarks. Kinematic factors, which are calculated in a peripheral production model, are the important ingredients in determining the variation of the cross sections between the families of different quark states. This model can accomodate deviations from the vector- meson-dominance approach. The relation between these two models is discussed. Using the parameters determined by photoproduction of ψ and charmed hadrons we estimate the photoproduction of Υ{hooked} and its associated family of heavy hadrons.
