ABSTRACT: Using 106×106 ψ′ events collected with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII storage ring, the higherorder multipole amplitudes in the radiative transition ψ′→γχc2→γπ+π/γK+K are measured. A fit to the χc2 production and decay angular distributions yields M2=0.046±0.010±0.013 and E3=0.015±0.008±0.018, where the first errors are statistical and the second systematic. Here M2 denotes the normalized magnetic quadrupole amplitude and E3 the normalized electric octupole amplitude. This measurement shows evidence for the existence of the M2 signal with 4.4σ statistical significance and is consistent with the charm quark having no anomalous magnetic moment.Phys. Rev.

ABSTRACT: We present results of a study of the decay J/ψ → ωηπ+ π using a sample of (225.2 ± 2.8) × 10(6) J/ψ events collected by the BESIII detector, and report the observation of a new process J/ψ → ωX(1870) with a statistical significance of 7.2σ, in which X(1870) decays to a(0)(±)(980)π±. Fitting to ηπ+ π mass spectrum yields a mass M = 1877.3 ± 6.3(stat)(7.4)(+3.4)(syst) MeV/c(2), a width Γ = 57 ± 12(stat)(4)(+19)(syst) MeV/c(2), and a product branching fraction B(J/ψ → ωX) × B(X→a(0)(±)(980)π±) × B(a(0) (±)(980) → ηπ±) = [1.50 ± 0.26(stat)(0.36)(+0.72) (syst)] × 10(4). Signals for J/ψ → ωf(1)(1285) and J/ψ → ω η(1405) are also clearly observed and measured.Physical Review Letters 10/2011; 107(18):182001. · 7.73 Impact Factor  [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Using (106±4)×10⁻⁶ ψ(3686) events accumulated with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII e⁺e⁻ collider, we present the first measurement of decays of χ(c1) to vector meson pairs φφ, ωω, and ωφ. The branching fractions are measured to be (4.4±0.3±0.5)×10⁻⁴, (6.0±0.3±0.7)×10⁻⁴, and (2.2±0.6±0.2)×10⁻⁵, for χ(c1)→φφ, ωω, and ωφ, respectively, which indicates that the hadron helicity selection rule is significantly violated in χ(cJ) decays. In addition, the measurement of χ(cJ)→ωφ provides the first indication of the rate of doubly OZIsuppressed χ(cJ) decay. Finally, we present improved measurements for the branching fractions of χ(c0) and χ(c2) to vector meson pairs.Physical Review Letters 08/2011; 107(9):092001. · 7.73 Impact Factor  [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: First measurements of the decays of the three χcJ states to pp̅ K+K final states are presented. Intermediate ϕ→K+K and Λ(1520)→pK resonance states are observed, and branching fractions for χcJ→p̅ K+Λ(1520), Λ(1520)Λ̅ (1520), and ϕpp̅ are reported. We also measure branching fractions for direct χcJ→pp̅ K+K decays. These are first observations of χcJ decays to unstable baryon resonances and provide useful information about the χcJ states. The experiment uses samples of χcJ mesons produced via radiative transitions from 106×106 ψ′ mesons collected in the BESIII detector at the BEPCII e+e collider.Phys. Rev. D. 06/2011; 83(11).

ABSTRACT: The decays χcJ→γV (V=ϕ, ρ0, ω) are studied with a sample of radiative ψ′→γχcJ events in a sample of (1.06±0.04)×108ψ′ events collected with the BESIII detector. The branching fractions are determined to be: B(χc1→γϕ)=(25.8±5.2±2.3)×106, B(χc1→γρ0)=(228±13±22)×106, and B(χc1→γω)=(69.7±7.2±6.6)×106. The decay χc1→γϕ is observed for the first time. Upper limits at the 90% confidence level on the branching fractions for χc0 and χc2 decays into these final states are determined. In addition, the fractions of the transverse polarization component of the vector meson in χc1→γV decays are measured to be 0.290.120.09+0.13+0.10 for χc1→γϕ, 0.158±0.0340.014+0.015 for χc1→γρ0, and 0.2470.0870.026+0.090+0.044 for χc1→γω, respectively. The first errors are statistical and the second ones are systematic.Phys. Rev. D. 06/2011; 83(11).

ABSTRACT: Using samples of 2.25×108 J/ψ events and 1.06×108 ψ′ events collected with the BES III detector, we study the f0(980)→a00(980) and a00(980)→f0(980) transitions in the processes J/ψ→ϕf0(980)→ϕa00(980) and χc1→π0a00(980)→π0f0(980), respectively. Evidence for f0(980)→a00(980) is found with a significance of 3.4σ, while in the case of a00(980)→f0(980) transition, the significance is 1.9σ. Measurements and upper limits of both branching ratios and mixing intensities are determined.Phys. Rev. D. 02/2011; 83(3).

ABSTRACT: With a sample of (225.2±2.8)×10(6) J/ψ events registered in the BESIII detector, J/ψ→γπ(+)π()η(') is studied using two η(') decay modes: η(')→π(+)π()η and η(')→γρ(0). The X(1835), which was previously observed by BESII, is confirmed with a statistical significance that is larger than 20σ. In addition, in the π(+)π()η(') invariantmass spectrum, the X(2120) and the X(2370), are observed with statistical significances larger than 7.2σ and 6.4σ, respectively. For the X(1835), the angular distribution of the radiative photon is consistent with expectations for a pseudoscalar.Physical Review Letters 02/2011; 106(7):072002. · 7.73 Impact Factor  [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

Article: Pointlike Baryons?
[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: A peculiar feature, observed in the BaBar data on e+e > baryonantibaryon cross sections, is the nonvanishing cross section at threshold for all these processes. This is the expectation due to the Coulomb enhancement factor acting on a charged fermion pair. Remarkably, in the case of e+e > ppbar it is found that Coulomb final state interactions largely dominate the cross section at threshold and it turns out a form factor G(4Mp^2)~1, as a pointlike fermion. Also in the case of e+e > Lambda_cantiLambda_c, as recently measured by Belle for the first time, a pointlike behavior is suggested for the charmed charged baryon, being the Lambda_c form factor at threshold G~1, even if within a large error. In the case of neutral strange baryons the nonvanishing cross section at threshold is interpreted as a remnant of quark pair Coulomb interaction before the hadronization, taking into account the asymmetry between attractive and repulsive Coulomb factors. Besides strange baryon cross sections are successfully compared to Uspin invariance relationships.01/2009;  [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Unexpected features of the BaBar data on e + e  rightarrow B overline{{B}} crosssections ( B stands for baryon) are discussed. These data have been collected, with unprecedented accuracy, by means of the initialstate radiation technique, which is particularly suitable in giving good acceptance and energy resolution at threshold. A striking feature observed in the BaBar data is the nonvanishing crosssection at threshold for all these processes. This is the expectation due to the Coulomb enhancement factor acting on a charged fermion pair. In the case of e + e  rightarrow p overline{{p}} it is found that Coulomb finalstate interactions largely dominate the crosssection and the form factor is  G p(4 M 2 p) ˜ 1 , which could be a general feature for baryons. In the case of neutral baryons an interpretation of the nonvanishing crosssection at threshold is suggested, based on quark electromagnetic interaction and taking into account the asymmetry between attractive and repulsive Coulomb factors. Besides strange baryon crosssections are compared to U spin invariance predictions.European Physical Journal A 01/2009; 39(3):315321. · 2.42 Impact Factor
