(2014): Measurement of the production cross-section of ψ(2S)→J/ψ(→μ⁺μ⁻)π⁺π⁻ in pp collisions at √s=7 TeV at ATLAS. In: Journal of High Energy Physics, Vol. 9, 79: S. 1-49




The prompt and non-prompt production cross-sections for ψ(2S) mesons are measured using 2.1 fb⁻¹ of pp collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV recorded by the ATLAS experiment at the LHC. The measurement exploits the ψ(2S)→ J/ψ (→μ⁺μ⁻)π⁺π⁻ decay mode, and probes ψ(2S) mesons with transverse momenta in the range 10≤ pT < 100 GeV and rapidity |y| < 2.0. The results are compared to other measurements of ψ(2S) production at the LHC and to various theoretical models for prompt and non-prompt quarkonium production
