Author(s) from Durham


We recall that the exclusive production of high mass objects via γγ fusion at the LHC is not strongly suppressed in comparison with inclusive γγ fusion. Therefore it may be promising to study new objects, X, produced by the γγ subprocess in experiments with exclusive kinematics. We list the main advantages of exclusive experiments. We discuss the special advantage of observing $\gamma \gamma \to X\to \gamma Z$ exclusive events.
