Forward physics program

Forward Physics Program

  • Soft & Hard diffraction

    • Total cross section and elastic scattering

    • Gap survival dynamics, multi-gap events, proton light cone (pp3jets+p)

    • Diffractive structure: Production of jets, W, J/, b, t, hard photons

    • Double Pomeron exchange events as a gluon factory (anomalous W,Z production?)

    • Diffractive Higgs production, (diffractive Radion production?)

    • SUSY & other (low mass) exotics & exclusive processes

  • Low-x Dynamics

    • Parton saturation, BFKL/CCFM dynamics, proton structure, multi-parton scattering…

  • New Forward Physics phenomena

    • New phenomena such as DCCs, incoherent pion emission, Centauro’s

  • Strong interest from cosmic rays community

    • Forward energy and particle flows/minimum bias event structure

  • Two-photon interactions and peripheral collisions

  • Forward physics in pA and AA collisions

  • Use QED processes to determine the luminosity to 1% (ppppee, pppp)

Many of these studies can be done best with L ~1033 (or lower)

Diffraction at lhc

Diffraction at LHC:

  • PP scattering at highest energy

  • Soft & Hard Diffraction

     < 0.1  O(1) TeV “Pomeron beams“

    E.g. Structure of the Pomeron F(,Q2)

     down to ~ 10-3 & Q2 ~104 GeV2

    Diffraction dynamics?

    Exclusive final states ?

  • Gap dynamics in pp presently not fully


 = proton



Reconstruct 

with roman


Dpe from di jet events

DPE:  from Di-jet events

  • Et> 100 GeV/2 figs

Pt>100 GeV/c for different structure functions

High  region probed/ clear differences between different SFs

Pp p jet jet p

pp  p + jet + jet + p

Petrov et al.

ET > 100 GeV

ET > 10 GeV

|t| (GeV)

|t| dependence  information on shape & size of the interaction region

Evolution in the presence of a short-time perturbation?

The cms totem forward physics study

Diffractive Higgs Production

Exclusive diffractive Higgs production pp p H p : 3-10 fb

Inclusive diffractive Higgs production pp  p+X+H+Y+p : 50-200 fb


E.g. V. Khoze et al

M. Boonekamp et al.

B. Cox et al. …







Advantages Exclusive:

 Jz=0 suppression of ggbb background

 Mass measurement via missing mass






~New: Under study by

many groups


roman pots

roman pots

Mssm higgs

MSSM Higgs

Kaidalov et al.,


100 fb

Cross section factor

~ 10 larger in MSSM

(high tan)



Study correlations

between the outgoing

protons to analyse the

spin-parity structure of

the produced boson

120 140

 See talk of A. Martin

Beyond standard model

Beyond Standard Model

Diffractive production of new heavy states pp p + M + p

Particularly if produced in gluon gluon (or ) fusion processes


Light CP violating Higgs Boson MH < 70 GeV

B. Cox et al.

Light MSSM Higgs hbb at large tan 

Light H,A (M<150 GeV) in MSSM with

large tan  (~ 30)  S/B > 10

Medium H,A (M=150-200 GeV) medium tan ?

V. Khoze et al. (see AD Martin talk)

Radion production - couples strongly to gluons

Ryutin, Petrov

Exclusive gluino-gluino production?

Only possible if gluino is light (< 200-250 GeV)

V. Khoze et al.

Sm higgs studies

SM Higgs Studies

Needs Roman Pots at new positions 320 and/or 420 m

Technical challenge: “cold” region of the machine, Trigger signals…







Mass of Higgs

Detectors at 300m 400m

Detectors at 300m/400m

Detectors in this region requires changes in the machine

  • Physics Case

    • Can we expect to see a good signal over background?

       Signal understood (cross section)

       Needs good understanding of the background (inclusive!)

       Needs more complete simulations (resolutions, etc.)

  • Trigger

    • 300m/400m signals of RPs arrive too late for the trigger

       Can we trigger with the central detector only for L1?

      Note: L1 2-jet thresholds ET > ~150 GeV

  • Machine

    • Can detectors (RPs or microstations) be integrated with the machine? Technically there is place available at 330 and 420 m

Some Major Concerns:

Of interest for both ATLAS and CMS

Detectors at 300 400m

Detectors at 300/400m

  • Initial discussions with the machine group (early 2002; see talk of D Marcina in the May CMS/TOTEM meeting)

  • Cold section: Detectors have to be integrated with cryostat

    No bypass option considered.

TOTEM presently not interested to follow

this up further with the machine.

Common CMS+ATLAS effort needed?

The cms totem forward physics study

Action is needed soon.

Any change now means paperwork!

Low x at the lhc

Low-x at the LHC

LHC: due to the high energy

can reach small values of Bjorken-x

in structure of the proton F(x,Q2)


 Drell-Yan

 Prompt photon production

 Jet production

 W production

If rapidities below 5 and

masses below 10 GeV can be

covered  x down to 10-6-10-7

Possible with T2 upgrade in TOTEM

(calorimeter, tracker) 5<< 6.7 !

Proton structure at low-x !!

Parton saturation effects?

Low x at the lhc1

Low-x at the LHC

Rapidity ranges of jets or leptons vs x range












High energy cosmic rays

High Energy Cosmic Rays

Cosmic ray


Dynamics of the

high energy

particle spectrum

is crucial

Interpreting cosmic ray data depends

on hadronic simulation programs

Forward region poorly know/constrained

Models differ by factor 2 or more

Need forward particle/energy measurements

e.g. dE/d…

Model predictions proton proton at the lhc

Model Predictions: proton-proton at the LHC

Predictions in the forward region within the CMS/TOTEM acceptance

Two photon interactions at the lhc





Two-photon interactions at the LHC

WWA spectrum

Reach high

W values!!

Relative luminosity S = L/Lpp:: ~ 0.1% for W> 200 GeV

K. Piotrzkowski

Significant production rates and very clean signatures available - both transverse and longitudinal missing energy

Exclusive production!

Range up to 200-250 GeV

for single tags

The cms totem forward physics study

p interactions at the LHC

K Piotrzkowski

  • 0.01 < x < 0.1, g tagging range

  • 0.005 < x < 0.3, Bjorken-x range


  • • anomalous W and Z production at Wgq  1 TeV

  • top pair production - top charge + threshold scanning?

  • single top production and anomalous Wtb vertex

  • SM BEH - for example,g b  H b, g q H W q

  • SUSY studies (complementary to the nominal ones) -

  • H+ t production (and H++), b and t spairs, t~c pair, ...

  • Exotics: compositness, excited quarks, ...

  • pPhysics




Example of a QED process for luminosity monitoring

D. Bocian

pp  pp e+e-

Electrons are

in forward range

5<  < 8

Cross section ~barns

Tracking important!

EM calorimetry essential

Can get the luminosity to 1-2%?

So far > 5% from W,Z production

Status of the project

Status of the Project

  • Common working group to study diffraction and forward physics at full LHC luminosity approved by CMS and TOTEM (spring 2002)

    (ADR/ K. Eggert organizing)

    Use synergy for e.g. simulation, physics studies & forward detector option studies.

    Some of this happened e.g. RP & T2 simulation, detector options

  • Detector options being explored

    • Roman Pot/microstations for beampipe detectors

      at 150, 215 , add 310 & 420 m ? (cold section!)

    • Inelastic detectors

      T1 CSC trackers of TOTEM (not usable at CMS lumi)

      Replace T2 with a compact silicon tracker (~ CMS technology) or GEMs

      Add EM/HAD calorimeter (CASTOR) behind T2

      Add Zero degree calorimeter (ZDC) at 140 m

  • Common DAQ/Trigger for CMS & TOTEM

  • Common simulation etc…
