My very soul craves for a potted palm
In my front porch. Nay, but it were sublime
To stalk the stealthy slug o' summer-time.

In science:

The proton-based models do not assume the existence of the pomeron and lead to a specific signature where we have the decay products of the Higgs boson in the main detector, the tagged protons in the roman pot detectors and nothing else (exclusive model).
The Diffractive Interactions Working Group Summary
This leads to very clean events where the protons are scattered at very small angle in the beam pipe (and can be tagged in roman pot detectors or microstations) and the Higgs boson which decays centrally in the main detector, and nothing else.
Diffractive Higgs boson production at Tevatron and LHC: an experimental review
These physics objectives require the detection of leading protons with scattering angles of a few µrad, which is accomplished with a Roman Pot ( “RP”) system having stations at 147 m and 220 m from the interaction point 5 where CMS will be located.
Tests of a Roman Pot Prototype for the TOTEM Experiment
The SD data sample is collected by triggering on the leading antiproton in the roman pot spectrometer3 plus at least one jet in the central detector.
Diffraction at the Tevatron
CDF has observed exclusive dijet production in p ¯p collisions. A sample of Double Pomeron Exchange (DPE) dijet data is collected by requiring the leading ¯p to be detected in the roman pot spectrometer, a veto on the detector activity in 3.6 < η < 5.9 (on the p side), plus at least two jets with ET > 5 GeV.
Diffraction at the Tevatron
Two so-called ”Roman Pots” are placed 147 m and 220 m from the interaction point, designed to detect leading protons at merely a few mm from the beam center.
Experimental Efforts on Very High-Energy Cosmic Rays and their Interactions - Conference Summary
Leading” protons with a scattering angle down to few µrad are detected by special movable beam-pipe insertions called Roman Pots (RPs).
Summary of Physics Results from the TOTEM Experiment
While previous studies of diffraction at HERA are based on the rapidity gap method, more recent data have been collected with Leading Proton Spectrometers (LPS) involving “ Roman Pot Detectors”.
QCD: Challenges for the Future
In the case of protons in the target fragmentation region, they are measured with the Leading Proton Spectrometer (LPS), consisting of detectors operating inside movable Roman pots located in the beam pipe, which measure the curvature of the charged particle and therefore its momentum.
Target Fragmentation at Polarized HERA: A Test of Universal Topological Charge Screening in QCD
Using a Roman Pot Spectrometer (RPS) to trigger on and measure the momentum of leading antiprotons, CDF collected about 3,000 K events at √s = 1800 GeV with no other requirement on the trigger.
The diffractive structure function at the Tevatron: CDF results
Using a Roman pot spectrometer to detect leading antiprotons and determine their momentum and polar angle (hence the t-value), CDF measured the ratio of SD to ND dijet production rates at √s=630 10 and 1800 GeV 11 as a function of x-Bjorken of the struck parton in the ¯p.
Diffraction in CDF: Run I results and plans for Run II
This system comprises: 1. A Roman Pot Specrometer (RPS) on the antiproton side to detect leading antiprotons and measure ξ and t 2.
Diffraction in CDF: Run I results and plans for Run II
The Forward Detectors 3 , which are designed to enhance the capabilities for studies of diffractive physics, include the Roman Pot (RP) fiber tracker to detect leading antiprotons, a set of Beam Shower Counters (BSCs) to tag rapidity gaps, and two forward MiniPlug calorimeters 4 .
