Abstract

In this contribution we analyse double vector meson production in photon - hadron (γh) interactions at pp/pA/AA collisions and present predictions for ρρ, J/ψJ/ψ and ρJ/ψ production considering the double scattering mechanism. We estimate the total cross sections and compare our results with the predictions for double vector meson production in γγ interactions at hadronic c olliders. Our results demonstrate that the ρρ and J/ψJ/ψ production in PbPb collisions is dominated by the double scattering mechanism, while the two - photon mechanism dominates in pp collisions. Moreover, our results indicate that the analysis of the ρJ/ψ production at LHC can be useful to constrain the double scattering mechanism.
