In this work, the reaction is systematically studied based on the two gluon exchange model and the pomeron model. The calculation results show that the total cross section of photoproduction can reach more than 80 nb near the center-of-mass energy GeV, so it is suggested that JLab and other experiments carry out relevant measurements. Moreover, under the framework of the vector meson dominance assumption, the scattering length of and proton interaction is estimated as fm from the cross sections predicted by the theoretical models, which is on the same order of magnitude as the -p scattering length. In addition, the total cross section, number of events and rapidity distribution of production are predicted at Electron-Ion colliders (EICs) and ultra-peripheral collisions (UPCs) by using eSTARlight and STARlight code. The study of and relevant properties is of enlightening significance in better understanding the strangeonium family spectrum, and provides necessary data support for the future experiment of EICs and UPCs.
