Abstract

The exclusive electroproduction of two pions in the mass range 0.4<M ππ<2.5 GeV has been studied with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 82 pb-1. The analysis was carried out in the kinematic range of 2<Q 2<80 GeV2, 32<W<180 GeV and |t|<0.6 GeV2, where Q2 is the photon virtuality, W is the photon-proton centre-of-mass energy and t is the squared four-momentum transfer at the proton vertex. The two-pion invariant-mass distribution is interpreted in terms of the pion electromagnetic form factor, |F(M ππ )|, assuming that the studied mass range includes the contributions of the ρ, ρ′ and ρ′′ vector-meson states. The masses and widths of the resonances were obtained and the Q2 dependence of the cross-section ratios δ(ρ′→ππ)/δ(ρ) and δ(ρ′′→)/δ(ρ) was extracted. The pion form factor obtained in the present analysis is compared to that obtained in e+ e→π+ π.
