    Abstract:
    We have measured the cross section of γ + D*± production in p̄p collisions at √s = 1.8 TeV using the Collider Detector at Fermilab. In this kinematic region, the Compton scattering process (gc → γc) is expected to dominate and thus provide a direct link to the charm quark density in the proton. From the 45 ± 18 γ + D*± candidates in a 16.4 pb-1 data sample, we have determined the production cross section to be 0.38 ± 0.15 (stat) ± 0.11(syst) nb for the rapidity range |y(D*±)| < 1.2 and |y(γ)| < 0.9, and for the transverse momentum range pT(D*±) > 6 GeV/c and 16 < pT(γ) < 40 GeV/c. The measured cross section is compared to a theoretical prediction.
