Description

Exclusive W+ W- pair production in photon-photon collisions during the pp runs at 7 and 8TeV are observed and used to put constraints on the Anomalous Quartic Gauge Couplings. During the proton lead collisions in photon-induced vector meson production is observed via the decay of Ypsilon into two muons. The slope of the squared pT distribution is measured to determine the size of the production region.
