Resonance production in γγ reactions

  • J. E. Olsson
Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 191)


Experimental results on the exclusive production of resonances in γγ collisions are reviewed. These include new measurements of the radiative widths of the pseudoscalar (η,η′) and the tensor mesons (f, A2, f′). A comparison of these results with SU(3) is made. Upper limits for other states than f in γγ → ππ are given. The searches for γγ production of the states ι and θ as well as ηc are presented and upper limits are given. Finally a limit is given for the rare decay f → π+π0.
