Abstract

We complete the model-independent analysis of the scaling properties of the differential cross section of elastic proton-proton cross sections, including new TOTEM data published in 2022 at √s = 8 TeV. We separate the signal and background regions with a new gating method. In the signal region, we find that the statistical significance of the Odderon exchange from the combined 7.0 and 8.0 TeV pp data of TOTEM and the 1.96 TeV pp̄ data of D0 is at least 7.32σ. In the background region, the scaling functions of elastic proton-proton data at 7 and 8 TeV, and that of elastic proton-antiproton scattering data at 1.96 TeV agree with a statistical significance not larger than 1.93σ.
