Abstract

After a brief review of the diffractive physics done by the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) in Run 1 (ending 1996), I describe the improved detectors of Run 2 (starting 2001) and some of the new studies they make possible. These range from low mass exclusive central systems produced by double pomeron exchange, to high mass b \( \bar b \) dijets by DℙE. I comment on the possibility of a Higgs signal in the latter channel at the Tevatron (unlikely) or at the LHC (less unlikely). Some related processes which could constrain the theoretical estimates are discussed.
