Description

Charm production in charged current deep inelastic scattering has been measured for the first time in $e^\pm p$ collisions, using data collected with the ZEUS detector at HERA, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 358 pb$^{−1}$. Results are presented separately for $e^+ p$ and $e^− p$ scattering at a centre-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s} = 318$ GeV within a kinematic phase-space region of 200 GeV$^2$ $< Q^2 <$ 60000 GeV$^2$ and $y < 0.9$, where $Q^2$ is the squared four-momentum transfer and $y$ is the inelasticity of deep inelastic scattering. The measured cross sections of electroweak charm production, although not statistically significant, are consistent with expectations.
