Abstract

We present measurements of the differential cross section dσ/dpTγ for the associated production of a c-quark jet and an isolated photon with rapidity |yγ|<1.0 and transverse momentum 30<pTγ<300 GeV. The c-quark jets are required to have |yjet|<1.5 and pTjet>15 GeV. The ratio of differential cross sections for γ+c to γ+b production as a function of pTγ is also presented. The results are based on data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 8.7 fb-1 recorded with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron pp̄ Collider at s=1.96 TeV. The obtained results are compared to next-to-leading order perturbative QCD calculations using various parton distribution functions, to predictions based on the kT-factorization approach, and to predictions from the sherpa and pythia Monte Carlo event generators.
