Abstract

We present a measurement of the photon structure function F2 γ in the reaction ee→eeX for Q2 in the range 0.2<Q2<7 GeV2, using 9,200 multihadron events obtained with the TPC/Two-Gamma detector at PEP. The data have been corrected for detector effects using a regularized unfolding procedure and are presented as a function of x and Q2. The structure function shows scaling in the region 0.3<Q2<1.6 GeV2, x<0.3 and rises for higher Q2. At Q2=5.1 GeV2 the results are compared with QCD and, within the scheme of Antoniadis and Grunberg, rather conservative bounds for the QCD scale parameter of 133±50< {Mathematical expression}<268±98 MeV are obtained. A study of the final state structure shows that the rise of F2 γ is consistent with being entirely due to the pointlike component of the photon.
