Abstract

The cross sections for inelastic photoproduction of J/psi and psi' mesons have been measured in ep collisions with the ZEUS detector at HERA, using an integrated luminosity of 38.0 pb(- 1). The events were required to have 0.1 lt z lt 0.9 and 50 lt W lt 180 GeV, where z is the fraction of the incident photon energy carried by the J/psi in the proton rest frame and W is the photon-proton centre-of-mass energy. The psi' to J/psi cross- section ratio was measured in the range 0.55 lt z lt 0.9. The J/psi data, for various ranges of transverse momentum, are compared to theoretical models incorporating colour-singlet and colour-octet matrix elements. Predictions of a next-to-leading- order colour-singlet model give a good description of the data, although there is a large normalisation uncertainty. The J/psi helicity distribution for z gt 0.4 is compared to leading-order QCD predictions.
