Abstract
The first measurement of inclusive D-s(+/-) photoproduction at HERA has bee n performed with the ZEUS detector for photon-proton centre-of-mass energie s; 130 < W < 280 GeV The measured cross section for 3 < p(perpendicular to) (Ds) < 12 GeV and \eta(Ds)\ < 1.5 is sigma(ep-->DsX) = 3.79 +/- 0.59(stat.) (-0.46)(+0.26)(syst.) +/- 0.94(br.) nb, where the last error arises from th e uncertainty in the D-s(+/-) decay branching ratio. The measurements are c ompared with inclusive D*(+/-) photoproduction cross sections in the same k inematic region and with QCD calculations. The D-s(+/-) cross sections lie above a fixed-order next-to-leading order calculation and agree better with a tree-level O(alpha alpha(s)(3)) calculation that was tuned to describe t he ZEUS D* (+/-) cross sections. The ratio of D-s(+/-) to D*(+/-) cross sec tions is 0.41 +/- 0.07(stat.)(-0.05)(+0.03)(syst.) +/- 0.10 (br.). From thi s ratio, the strangeness-suppression factor in charm photoproduction, withi n the LUND string fragmentation model, has been calculated to be gamma(s)= 0.27 +/- 0.05 +/- 0.07(br.). The cross-section ratio and gamma(s) are in go od agreement with those obtained in charm production in e(+)e(-) annihilati on. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
