Measurement of the inclusive isolated prompt photon cross section in $pp[over \ifmmode\bar\else\textasciimacron\fi{}]$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=1.96\,\,TeV$ using the CDF detector

Journal Article (Academic article)

A measurement of the cross section for the inclusive production of isolated photons by the CDF experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron collider is presented. The measurement covers the pseudorapidity region $|\eta\gamma|30$  GeV and is based on 2.5  fb-1 of integrated luminosity. The sample is almost a factor of 7 larger than those used for recent published results and extends the $E_T^\gamma$ coverage by 100 GeV. The result agrees with next-to-leading order perturbative QCD calculations within uncertainties over the range $50
