Abstract

Interactions of high energy photons on a hyrogen target have been studied using a large acceptance segmented calorimeter. The event topology clearly shows the production of dijet final states as predicted by perturbative QCD. The energy flow in the photon (forward) direction is compared both to Monte Carlo expectations and to that produced in p interactions.
