Proton-antiproton elastic scattering was measured at a centre of mass energy s = 540 GeV . In the four-momentum transfer range 0.21 < − t < 0.50 GeV 2 the t -distribution of about 7000 events is well represented by the exponential shape exp ( bt ) with slope parameter b = 13.7 ± 0.3 GeV −2 . A new measurement of the slope for − t < 0.19 GeV 2 confirms our earlier result, giving evidence for a change of slope of about 4 GeV −2 around − l ̷ ≈ 0.15 GeV 2 .

Proton-antiproton elastic scattering at a centre-of-mass energy of 540 GeV was measured in the four-momentum transfer range 0.05 < − t < s .19 GeV 2 . The t -distribution can be fitted by the exponential exp( b ) with b =17.2±1.0 GeV −2 . This result indicates a rapid decrease of the width of the diffraction peak between ISR and Collider energies.

Proton-antiproton elastic scattering was measured at the CERN SPS Collider at the centr-of-mass energy s =546 GeV in the Coulomb interference region. The data provide information on the phase of the hadronic amplitude in the forward direction. The conventional analysis gives for the ratio ϱ of the real to the imaginary part of the hadronic amplitude the result ϱ =0.24±0.04.
Axis error includes +- 0.025/0.025 contribution (Normalisation was fixed using a previous UA4 measurement of the total cross section: sig(name=tot)*(1 + alpha**2)).

Proton-antiproton elastic scattering was measured at the centre-of-mass energy s = 630 GeV in the four-momentum transfer range 0.7 ⩽ − t ⩽ 2.2 GeV 2 . The new data confirm our previous results at s = 546 GeV on the presence of a break in the t -distribution at − t ≃ 0.9 GeV 2 which is followed by a shoulder, and extend the momentum transfer range to larger values. The t -dependence of the differential cross section beyond the break is discussed.
Errors contain statistics and acceptance uncertainty.
Proton-antiproton elastic scattering was measured at the center-of-mass energy s =546 GeV in the four-momentum transfer range 0.45⩽−⩽1.55GeV 2 . The shape of the t -distribution is quite different from that observed in proton-proton scattering at the ISR. Rather than a dip-bump structure, a kink is present at − ≈0.9GeV 2 followed by a shoulder. The cross section at the second maximum is more than one order of magnitude higher than at the ISR.
The proton-antiproton total cross section was measured at the CM energy √s = 546 GeV . The result is σ tot = 61.9± 1.5 mb . The ratio of the elastic to the total cross section is σ e ℓ / σ tot = 0.215±0.005. A comparison to the lower energy data shows that the increase of the total cross section with energy is very close to a log 2 s behaviour.
