Cross sections for deuterium, tritium, and helium production in [formula presented] collisions at [formula presented] TeV

Journal Article

We present the results of a search for the production of light elements in (Formula presented) collisions at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. Momentum, time of flight, and (Formula presented) measurements are used to distinguish nuclei from elementary particles. A production ratio for deuterium to hydrogen is calculated and compared to the primordial value of the big bang model. Some evidence for tritium is found and none for helium isotopes. © 2000 The American Physical Society.
