Description

We study the W/Z pair production via two-photon exchange at the LHC and give the sensitivities on trilinear and quartic gauge anomalous couplings between photons and W/Z bosons. Tagging the protons in the final state in the ATLAS Forward Physics detectors as an example allows to improve the reach on anomalous couplings by four orders of magnitude reaching the values predicted by extra-dimension theories. The measurement of the exclusive jet production using the same detectors at the LHC will also be described.
