Title: Atomic number dependence of hadron production at large transverse momentum in 300 GeV proton--nucleus collisions

Abstract

In an experiment at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory we have compared the production of large transverse momentum hadrons from targets of W, Ti, and Be bombarded by 300 GeV protons. The hadron yields were measured at 90{sup o} in the proton-nucleon c.m. system with a magnetic spectrometer equipped with 2 Cerenkov counters and a hadron calorimeter. The production cross-sections have a dependence on the atomic number A that grows with P{sub perpendicular}, eventually leveling off proportional to A{sup1.1}.
