Description

We discuss the potential to constrain the small-x PDFs using the exclusive production of heavy vector mesons. The calculation of J/psi and Upsilon photoproduction at NLO in collinear factorisation is described. The different behaviour of the NLO corrections for J/psi and Upsilon is highlighted and we outline what might be expected from the inclusion of these processes in a PDF fit.
