    Abstract

    Supersymmetry suggests that new families of hadrons (R-hadrons) may exist, with masses possibly in the GeV/c2 range. If so, relatively model-independent bounds on their pair-production in proton collisions can be obtained by careful calorimetry experiments. Preliminary results indicate an upper limit {less-than or approximate} 100 μb for the pN → RR̄ + X cross section at √s = 27.5 GeV.
