    Abstract:
    The first observation of diffractive J/ψ(→μ+μ-) production in p̄p collisions at s√=1.8 TeV was presented. Events were selected with a pair of muon candidates using a three-level dimuon trigger system. The dimuon mass distribution was fitted with a sum of a Gaussian and a linear function to evaluate the fraction of background events in the signal region. A value of 0.59±0.15 for the gluon fraction of the diffractive structure function of the proton was extracted.
