Abstract
New fundamental observables are becoming

accessible with the Leading Proton Spectrometers

(LPS) of ZEUS and H1. This enables us to test

more thoroughly the pQCD mechanism of diffractive

Deep Inelastic Scattering (DIS). Calculations of

the diffractive cross-section in the small

Bjorken x limit have been performed. We have

used the microscopic QCD formalism of

diffractive DIS to find higher twist corrections

to the transverse structure functions and predict

the diffractive slope and azimuthal asymmetries.

We establish duality correspondence between

diffraction into low-mass continuum and vector

meson production, and calculate the diffractive

contribution to the spin structure functions.
