Abstract

Production of D*+/-(2010) mesons in diffractive deep inelastic scattering has been measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 82 pb(-1). Diffractive events were identified by the presence of a large rapidity gap in the final state. Differential cross sections have been measured in the kinematic region 1.5 lt Q(2) lt 200 GeV2 0.02 lt y lt 0.7, x(P) lt 0.035, beta lt 0.8, P-T (D*+/-) gt 1.5 GeV and \eta(D*+/-)\ lt 1.5. The measured cross sections are compared to theoretical predictions. The results are presented in terms of the open- charm contribution to the diffractive proton structure function. The data demonstrate a strong sensitivity to the diffractive parton densities.
