Abstract

The production of charm quarks is studied in deep-inelastic electron-photon scattering using data recorded by the OPAL detector at LEP at nominal e+e- centre-of-mass energies from 183 to 209 GeV. The charm quarks have been identified by full reconstruction of charged D*mesons using their decays into D0π with the D0 observed in two decay modes with charged particle final states, Kπ and Kπππ. The cross-section σD* for production of charged D* in the reaction e+e- → e+e-D*X is measured in a restricted kinematical region using two bins in Bjorken x, 0.0014 < x < 0.1 and 0.1 < x < 0.87. From σD* the charm production cross-section a (e+e- → e+e-cc̄X) and the charm structure function of the photon F2,c γ are determined in the region 0.0014 < x < 0.87 and 5 < Q2 < 100 GeV2. For x > 0.1 the perturbative QCD calculation at next-to-leading order agrees perfectly with the measured cross-section. For x < 0.1 the measured cross-section is 43.8 ± 14.3 ± 6.3 ± 2.8 pb with a next-to-leading order prediction of 17.0-2.3 +2.9 pb.

N2 - The production of charm quarks is studied in deep-inelastic electron-photon scattering using data recorded by the OPAL detector at LEP at nominal e+e- centre-of-mass energies from 183 to 209 GeV. The charm quarks have been identified by full reconstruction of charged D*mesons using their decays into D0π with the D0 observed in two decay modes with charged particle final states, Kπ and Kπππ. The cross-section σD* for production of charged D* in the reaction e+e- → e+e-D*X is measured in a restricted kinematical region using two bins in Bjorken x, 0.0014 < x < 0.1 and 0.1 < x < 0.87. From σD* the charm production cross-section a (e+e- → e+e-cc̄X) and the charm structure function of the photon F2,c γ are determined in the region 0.0014 < x < 0.87 and 5 < Q2 < 100 GeV2. For x > 0.1 the perturbative QCD calculation at next-to-leading order agrees perfectly with the measured cross-section. For x < 0.1 the measured cross-section is 43.8 ± 14.3 ± 6.3 ± 2.8 pb with a next-to-leading order prediction of 17.0-2.3 +2.9 pb.
