Description

Inclusive non-diffractive photoproduction of ρ(770)º, K*(892)º and φ(1020) mesons is investigated with the H1 detector in ep collisions at HERA. The corresponding average gamma p centre-of-mass energy is 210 GeV. The mesons are measured in the transverse momentum range 0.5 < pT < 7 GeV and the rapidity range |y_lab|<1. Differential cross sections are presented as a function of transverse momentum and rapidity, and are compared to the predictions of hadroproduction models.
