Reply to "Comment on 'Hadronic production of thermal photons'"
MetadataShow full item record
We address a recent comment by Alam [Phys. Rev. C 71, 059802 (2005)], on our work of thermal photon emission rates from hadronic matter. Specifically, we explain how t-channel omega exchange in the pi rho ->pi gamma reaction arises as a dominant contribution to the rates at high energy and why hadronic form factors cannot be neglected in this assessment.
