Abstract

The photon-proton total cross section has been measured in the process e/sup +/p to e/sup +/ gamma p to e/sup +/X with the ZEUS detector at HERA. Events were collected with photon virtuality Q/sup 2/ lt 0.02 GeV/sup 2/ and average gamma p center-of-mass energy W/sub gamma p/=209 GeV in a dedicated run, designed to control systematic effects, with an integrated luminosity of 49 nb/sup -1/. The measured total cross section is sigma /sub tot//sup gamma p/ = 174+or-1 (stat.)+or-13 (syst.) mu b. The energy dependence of the cross section is compatible with parameterizations of high-energy pp and pp data.
