Abstract

The reaction pp → pfps(K+K-K+K-) in which the K+K-K+K- system is centrally produced has been studied at 450 GeV/c. φφ production has been found to dominate this reaction and is compatible with being produced by double Pomeron exchange. An angular analysis of the φφ system favours JPC = 2++ and its dPT dependence is similar to that observed for glueball candidates.
