[in2p3-00013500, v1] Elastic Photoproduction of $J/\psi$ and $\Upsilon$ Mesons at HERA DESY 00-037 ISSN 0418-9833 March 2000 Elastic Photoproduction of J= andΥMesons at HERA H1 Collaboration Abstract Cross sections for elastic photoproduction of J/ψ and Υ mesons are presented. For J/ψ mesons the dependence on the photon-proton centre-of-mass energy Wγp is analysed in an extended range with respect to previous measurements of 26 � Wγp � 285 GeV. The measured energy dependence is parameterized as σγp/ W �γp with δ = 0.83 � 0.07. The differential cross section dσ/dt for J/ψ mesons is derived, its dependence onWγp and on t is analysed and the effective trajectory (in terms of Regge theory) is determined to be α(t) = (1.27 � 0.05) + (0.08 � 0.17) � t/GeV2. Models based on perturbative QCD and on pomeron exchange are compared to the data. Submitted to Phys. Lett.
