Exclusive reactions, axial-vector meson, f1(1285), proton-proton and proton-antiproton collisions, HADES, PANDA, FAIR


We discuss the exclusive production of axial-vector f1(1285) meson via the vector-vector fusion mechanism at energies relevant for the HADES and PANDA experiments at FAIR. Total and differential cross sections are given. The possibility of a measurement by HADES at √ s = 3.46 GeV is presented and discussed. The decay channel f1 → π +π −η(→ π +π −π 0 ) seems particularly promising for this purpose.
