Abstract

We report the first observation of diffractive J/psi(→ mu (+)mu (-)) production in [(p)power bar] collisions at roots = 1.8 TeV. Diffractive events are identified by their rapidity gap signature. In a sample of events with two muons of transverse momentum p(T)(mu) gt 2 GeV/c within the pseudorapidity region \ eta \ lt 1.0, the ratio of diffractive to total J/[psi] production rates is found to be R-J/psi = [1.45 +/- 0.25]%. ne ratio R-J/psi(X) is presented as a function of x-Bjorken. By combining it with our previously measured corresponding ratio R-jj(x) for diffractive dijet production, we extract a value of 0.59 +/- 0.15 for the gluon fraction of the diffractive structure function of the proton.
