Author(s) from Durham


We discuss the salient features of exclusive vector meson production in heavy ion collisions at LHC energies. Special attention is paid to the space-time picture of the process. We account for both coherent and incoherent contributions. The explicit quantitative predictions are given for the ρ-meson differential cross section in lead–lead collisions in different kinematical configurations relevant for the LHCb and ALICE experiments.
