Title: Search for the {phi}-N bound state from {phi} meson subthreshold production

Abstract

The subthreshold photoproduction of {phi} mesons from heavy nuclear targets has been suggested as a candidate to search for the {phi}-N bound state, a quantum chromodynamics molecular state. In this Brief Report, we present detailed Monte Carlo studies to demonstrate the feasibility of this technique. Further, we show that proton-induced subthreshold production of {phi} meson from heavy nuclear targets is also suitable for such a search.
