Abstract

Production of prompt J/ψ meson pairs in proton-proton collisions at s = 7 TeV is measured with the CMS experiment at the LHC in a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 4.7 fb-1. The two J/ψ mesons are fully reconstructed via their decays into μ +μ -pairs. This observation provides for the first time access to the high-transverse-momentum region of J/ψ pair production where model predictions are not yet established. The total and differential cross sections are measured in a phase space defined by the individual J/ψ transverse momentum (p TJ/ψ) and rapidity (|y J/ψ|): |y J/ψ| < 1.2 for p TJ/ψ> 6.5 GeV/c; 1.2 < |y J/ψ| < 1.43 for a p Tthreshold that scales linearly with |y J/ψ| from 6.5 to 4.5 GeV/c; and 1.43 < |y J/ψ| < 2.2 for p TJ/ψ> 4.5 GeV/c. The total cross section, assuming unpolarized prompt J/ψ pair production is 1.49 ± 0.07 (stat) ±0.13 (syst) nb. Different assumptions about the J/ψ polarization imply modifications to the cross section ranging from -31% to +27%. [Figure not available: see fulltext.]
