|Threshold scans in diffractive W pair production via QEDprocesses at the LHC|
|M. Boonekamp, J. Cammin, R. Peschanski, C. Royon|
We propose a new set of measurements which can be performed at the LHC using roman pot detectors. This new method is based on exploiting excitation curves to measure kinematical properties of produced particles. We illustrate it in the case of central diffractive $W$ pair production.
