Title: High Energy Photon Beam Generation For QCD Explorer Based {gamma}P Colliders

Abstract

Combination of two linear accelerator projects, namely CLIC (Compact Linear Collider) and ILC (International Linear Collider) with LHC(Large Hadron Collider) offer an opportunity to build {gamma}p collider. High energy photons are produced by the Compton backscattering of the laser photons off high energy electrons at the conversion region. Then, Compton backscattered photons are collided with protons at the interaction region. In this study, conversion properties and optimum laser and electron beam parameters for CLIC and ILC are determined using CAIN simulation program.

  • We suggest a method for probing the quark content of the photon using b tagging at high energy e{sup +}e{sup {minus}} and e{gamma} colliders. We find that heavy quark tagging provides a sensitive and effective probe of the quark content of the photon especially in the low x region where the various models differ the most. This process is complementary to others that have been studied in the literature and can contribute to more precise determinations of quark and gluon distributions inside the photon. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • Transverse spectra of both jets and hadrons obtained in high-energymore » $pp$ and $$p\bar p $$ collisions at central rapidity exhibit power-law behavior of $$1/p_T^n$$ at high $$p_T$$. The power index $n$ is 4-5 for jet production and is slightly greater for hadron production. Furthermore, the hadron spectra spanning over 14 orders of magnitude down to the lowest $$p_T$$ region in $pp$ collisions at LHC can be adequately described by a single nonextensive statistical mechanical distribution that is widely used in other branches of science. This suggests indirectly the dominance of the hard-scattering process over essentially the whole $$p_T$$ region at central rapidity in $pp$ collisions at LHC. We show here direct evidences of such a dominance of the hard-scattering process by investigating the power index of UA1 jet spectra over an extended $$p_T$$ region and the two-particle correlation data of the STAR and PHENIX Collaborations in high-energy $pp$ and $$p \bar p$$ collisions at central rapidity. We then study how the showering of the hard-scattering product partons alters the power index of the hadron spectra and leads to a hadron distribution that can be cast into a single-particle non-extensive statistical mechanical distribution. Lastly, because of such a connection, the non-extensive statistical mechanical distribution can be considered as a lowest-order approximation of the hard-scattering of partons followed by the subsequent process of parton showering that turns the jets into hadrons, in high energy $pp$ and $$p\bar p$$ collisions.« less
  • The preservation of beam quality in a plasma wakefield accelerator driven by ultrahigh intensity and ultralow emittance beams, characteristic of future particle colliders, is a challenge. The electric field of these beams leads to plasma ions motion, resulting in a nonlinear focusing force and emittance growth of the beam. We propose to use an adiabatic matching section consisting of a short plasma section with a decreasing ion mass to allow for the beam to remain matched to the focusing force. We use analytical models and numerical simulations to show that the emittance growth can be significantly reduced.
  • It is demonstrated by consistent next-to-leading order (NLO) calculations for isolated prompt photon production, performed within the small-cone approximation, that previous discrepancies between NLO expectations for the direct [gamma] production rates at small [ital p][sub [ital T]][sup [gamma]]([approx gt]11 GeV) and isolated prompt photon data are removed. This is not only due to the use of experimentally confirmed steep small [ital x] parton distributions, but also due to a consistent inclusion of isolated photonic fragmentation contributions in NLO. The latter contributions are even more important for fully inclusive predictions.
