We study ratios of azimuthal-angle distributions in Mueller–Navelet jets after imposing a rapidity veto constraint: the minijet radiation activity is restricted to only allow final-state partons separated at least a distance in rapidity b. It is well-known that the asymptotic growth with the rapidity separation of the two tagged jets of the NLLA BFKL Green's function requires a value of b≃O(2) in order to avoid unphysical cross sections. We further investigate this point from a phenomenological point of view and work out those values of b which best fit angular distributions measured at the LHC in a realistic set-up where impact factors and parton distribution effects are also taken into account.
