Abstract

The photoproduction of prompt photons, together with an accompanying jet, has been measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 38.6 pb/sup -1/. A study of the effective transverse momentum, (k/sub T/), of partons in the proton, as modelled within the framework of the PYTHIA Monte Carlo, gives a value of (k/sub T/)=1.69+or-0.18/sub -0.20//sup +0.18/ GeV for the gamma p centre-of-mass energy range 134 lt W lt 251 GeV. This result is in agreement with the previously observed trend in hadron-hadron scattering for (k/sub T/) to rise with interaction energy.
