Monte-Carlo simulation of photoproduction of Omega meson
Junnarkar, Parikshit Manoj
The null result of December 2004 Sub-threshold photoproduction of J/$psi$ experiment has motivated this thesis. This monte-carlo predicts the cross-section for sub-threshold photoproduction process and provides an insight on the cross-section range of these processess. The experiment was also conducted as a calibration run for Omega and Eta mesons for the verification of correctness of experimental procedure. The results from this experiment are compared with the monte-carlo simulation for the number of omega meson events. This is primarily done as the models for photoproduction of omega meson are well tested. The monte-carlo provides satisfactory results for the photoproduction models and with a crude a spectrometer model predicts the number of events which are off by a factor less than two. A refined model from Jefferson lab will eliminate this discrepancy.
