Measurement of the $e^ + e^- \rightarrow W^ + W^-\gamma$ cross-section and limits on anomalous quartic gauge couplings with DELPHI
$W^ + W^-\gamma$ production at LEP2 is studied using data collected with the DELPHI detector at centre-of-mass energies between 189 GeV and 209 GeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 600 pb-1. Cross-sections are measured for the production of W + W - with a hard, central and isolated photon in the final state, and are found to be compatible with the Standard Model prediction. The photon energy spectra are used to derive limits on anomalous contributions to the $W^ + W^-Z^0\gamma$ and $W^ + W^-\gamma\gamma$ vertices.
