In a hadron collider environment identification of prompt photons originating in a hard partonic scattering process and rejection of non-prompt photons coming from hadronic jets or from beam related sources, is the first step for study of processes with photons in final state. Photons coming from decay of $\pi_0$'s produced inside a hadronic jet and photons produced in catastrophic bremsstrahlung by beam halo muons are two major sources of non-prompt photons...
