Threshold scans in central diffraction 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. The method exploits excitation curves in central diffractive pair production, 
and is illustrated using the examples of the W boson and top quark mass measurements. 
Further applications are mentioned.
