Abstract.

We compute the cross section for exclusive double-diffractive \(\gamma \gamma\) production at the Tevatron, \(p{\bar{p}} \to p + \gamma \gamma + {\bar{p}}\), and the LHC. We evaluate both the gg and \(q\bar{q}\;\; t\)-channel exchange contributions to the process. The observation of exclusive \(\gamma \gamma\) production at the Tevatron will provide a check on the model predictions and offer an opportunity to confirm the expectations for exclusive double-diffractive Higgs production at the LHC.
