We report on studies of exclusive dimuon production, using LHCb experimental data. Exclusively produced muon pairs can be produced by two photon fusion (a QED process ideally suited to obtaining a precise integrated luminosity measure), or by resonance production. We show results for exclusive dimuon production, and observations of the exclusive J/psi. psi‘ and chi_c states, obtained with data at $\sqrt(s) = 7$~TeV. We compare our results to predictions.
