We study diffractive vector meson photoproduction using string theory via AdS/CFT. The large s behavior of the cross sections for the scattering of the vector meson V on a proton is dominated by the soft Pomeron, σV ∼ s2ǫ−2α′P/B, where from the string theory model of [9], ǫ is approximately 1/7 below 10 GeV, and 1/11 for higher, but still sub-Froissart… CONTINUE READING
