Description

We present a measurement of the production cross-section of charm mesons in proton-antiproton collisions at 1.96 TeV center-of-mass energy, using the full data set collected by the CDF experiment at the Tevatron collider in Run II. The measurement probes a yet unexplored low transverse-momentum range, down to 1.5 GeV/c, using events selected with criteria that bias minimally the features of the collision. For initial state and collision energy, this remains a unique measurement of quantities that are important for QCD studies and for tuning Monte Carlo simulations.
