Description

Direct photons from Compton and annihilation hard processes, produced in hard scatterings of partons from incoming nucleons, are unique colourless probes of QCD processes. The measurement provides a handle for testing perturbative QCD predictions and constrain the parton distribution functions.
In this contribution, we present the measurements of isolated photon cross section in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV using the data collected by the ALICE with a trigger based on electromagnetic calorimeters. Isolation criterion is applied to select direct photons and reduce contamination from decay and fragmentation photons. The result will be compared to theoretical calculations.
