Hyun-Chul Kim meson photoproduction with hadron rescattering Department of Physics Inha University In collaboration with H.Y. Ryu, A. Hosaka, A. Titov EFB 22, Sept. 10, 2013@Kraków
Motivation OZI rule violation - Gluonic dynamics (Pomeron) - Hidden strangeness • Usual vector-meson exchanges are forbidden by the charge conjugation. • Hybrid exotic vector mesons (C=+1) are allowed but not much data.
This bump structure cannot be explained by the pomeron and one meson-exchange picture! Motivation 텍스트
Motivation • How to explain the bump structure around the K Lambda(1520) threshold. • How to describe the production mechanism near the threshold in place of the pomeron. In the present talk, we propose possible coupled-channel effects that may explain the phi photoproduction mechanism near the threshold region.
Summary of previous works Titov et al. PRC 60, 035205 (1999): Structure of the phi photoproduction • Ordinary vector-meson exchange is forbidden. • The pomeron governs the energy dependence of the differential cross section, though it is theoretically plausible only at higher energies.

Differential Cross Sections No Pomeron contribution (E = 2 GeV). Hadronic process can explain the angular distribution.

Spin-density matrices In general, spin-density matrices near the threshold region are well described.

Summary and Outlook • We investigated phi photoproduction, emphasizing the significance of the rescattering contributions, in particular, the K Lambda(1520) channel. • The K Lambda (1520) plays a dominant role. • However, we have considered here only the imaginary part of the rescattering amplitudes, to see their importance. • The real part of the rescattering amplitudes are under investigation, and it seems even more important. The corresponding work will soon appear.
Though this be madness,yet there is method in it. Hamlet Act 2, Scene 2 Thank you very much!
