First experimental results are presented from a search for events with a rapidity gap between jets. The D0 detector was used to examine events produced by the Fermilab Tevatron pp collider at s =1.8 TeV. The fraction of events with an observed rapidity gap between the two highest transverse energy (ET) jets is measured as a function of the pseudorapidity separation between the jet edges (c). An upper limit at the 95% confidence level of 1.1×10-2 is obtained on the fraction of events with non particles between the jets, for events with c>3 and jet ET greater than 30 GeV.
