Obsah
The K- over K+ multiplicity ratio is measured in deep-inelastic scattering, for the first time for kaons carrying a large fraction z of the virtual-photon energy. The data were obtained by the COMPASS collaboration using a 160 GeV muon beam and an isoscalar (LiD)-Li-6 target. The regime of deep-inelastic scattering is ensured by requiring Q(2) > 1 (GeV/c)(2) for the photon virtuality and W > 5 GeV/c(2) for the invariant mass of the produced hadronic system. Kaons are identified in the momentum range from 12 GeV/c to 40 GeV/c, thereby restricting the range in Bjorken-x to 0.01 < x < 0.40. The z-dependence of the multiplicity ratio is studied for z > 0.75. For very large values of z, i.e. z > 0.8, we observe the kaon multiplicity ratio to fall below the lower limits expected from calculations based on leading and nextto-leading order perturbative quantum chromodynamics. Also, the kaon multiplicity ratio shows a strong dependence on the missing mass of the single-kaon production process. This suggests that within the perturbative quantum chromodynamics formalism an additional correction may be required, which takes into account the phase space available for hadronisation.
