Abstract

The production of K* (892)(0) and phi(1020) in pp collisions at root s = 8 TeV was measured by using Run 1 data collected by the ALICE collaboration at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The P-T-differential yields d(2)N/dydp(T), in the range 0 < p(T) < 20 GeV/c for K*(0) and 0.4 < p(T) < 16 GeV/c for phi have been measured at midrapidity, vertical bar y vertical bar < 0.5. Moreover, improved measurements of the K*(0)(892) and phi (1020) at root s = 7 TeV are presented. The collision energy dependence of p(T) distributions, p(T)-integrated yields, and particle ratios in inelastic pp collisions are examined. The results are also compared with different collision systems. The values of the particle ratios are found to be similar to those measured at other LHC energies. In pp collisions a hardening of the particle spectra is observed with increasing energy, but at the same time it is also observed that the relative particle abundances are independent of the collision energy. The P-T-differential yields of K*(0) and phi in pp collisions at root s = 8 TeV are compared with the expectations of different Monte Carlo event generators.
