We present a study of tau- --> pi- K0S K0S (pi0) nu and tau- --> K- K0S K0S (pi0) nu decays using a dataset of 430 million tau lepton pairs, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 468 fb-1, collected with the BaBar detector at the PEP-II asymmetric energy e+e- storage rings. We measure branching fractions of (2.31 +/- 0.04 +/- 0.08)x10^{-4} and (1.60 +/- 0.20 +/- 0.22)x10^{-5} for the tau- --> pi- K0S K0S nu and tau- --> pi- K0S K0S pi0 nu decays, respectively. We find no evidence for tau- --> K- K0S K0S nu and tau- --> K- K0S K0S pi0 nu decays and place upper limits on the branching fractions of 6.3 x 10^{-7) and 4.0 x 10^{-7} at the 90% confidence level.
We study the processes e+e- --> K+ K- pi+pi-gamma, K+ K- pi0pi0gamma, and K+ K- K+ K-gamma, where the photon is radiated from the initial state. About 84000, 8000, and 4200 fully reconstructed events, respectively, are selected from 454 fb-1 of BaBar data. The invariant mass of the hadronic final state defines the \epem center-of-mass energy, so that the K+ K- pi+pi- data can be compared with direct measurements of the e+e- --> K+ K- pi+pi- reaction. No direct measurements exist for the e+e- --> K+ K-pi0pi0 or e+e- --> K+ K-K+ K- reactions, and we present an update of our previous result with doubled statistics. Studying the structure of these events, we find contributions from a number of intermediate states, and extract their cross sections. In particular, we perform a more detailed study of the e+e- --> phi(1020)pipigamma reaction, ...
The photon spectrum in B --> X_s \gamma decay, where X_s is any strange hadronic state, is studied using a data sample of (382.8\pm 4.2) \times 10^6 e^+ e^- --> Upsilon(4S) --> BBbar events collected by the BABAR experiment at the PEP-II collider. The spectrum is used to measure the branching fraction B(B --> X_s \gamma) = (3.21 \pm 0.15 \pm 0.29 \pm 0.08)\times 10^{-4} and the first, second, and third moments = 2.267 \pm 0.019 \pm 0.032 \pm 0.003 GeV, <(E_\gamma - )^2> = 0.0484 \pm 0.0053 \pm 0.0077 \pm 0.0005 GeV^2, and <(E_\gamma - )^3> = -0.0048 \pm 0.0011 \pm 0.0011 \pm 0.0004 GeV^3, for the range E_\gamma > 1.8 GeV, where E_\gamma is the photon energy in the B-meson rest frame. Results are also presented for narrower E_\gamma ranges. In addition, the direct CP asymmetry A_{CP}(B --> X_{s+d} \gamma) is measured to be 0.057 \pm 0.0...
The photon spectrum in the inclusive electromagnetic radiative decays of the $B$ meson, $B \to X_{s} \gamma$ plus $B \to X_{d} \gamma$, is studied using a data sample of $(382.8 \pm 4.2) \times 10^6$ $\Upsilon(4S) \to B\overli\ ne{B}$ decays collected by the \babar\ experiment at SLAC. The spectrum is used to extract the branching fraction ${\cal B}(B \to X_{s} \gamma)=(3.21 \pm 0.33)\times 10^{-4}$ for $E_{\gamma}>1.8 \gev$ and the direct CP asymmetry $A_{CP}(B \to X_{s+d} \gamma)=0.057 \pm 0.063$. The effects of detector resolution and Doppler smearing are unfolded to measure the photon energy spectrum in the $B$ meson rest frame.
We study the process $\gamma \gamma \to J/\psi \omega$ using a data sample of 519.2 $fb^{-1}$ recorded by the BaBar detector at SLAC at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy $e^+ e^-$ collider at center-of-mass energies near the $\Upsilon(nS)$ ($n = 2,3,4$) resonances. We confirm the existence of the charmonium-like resonance X(3915) decaying to $J/\psi \omega$ with a significance of 7.6 standard deviations, including systematic uncertainties, and measure its mass $(3919.4 \pm 2.2 \pm 1.6) MeV/c^2$ and width $(13 \pm 6 \pm 3) MeV$, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic. A spin-parity analysis supports the assignment $J^P=0^+$ and therefore the ident ification of the signal as due to the $\chi_{c0}(2P)$ resonance. In this hypothesis we determine the product between the two-photon width and the final state branching...
We report a study of the process gamma gamma -> X -> eta_c pi+ pi-, where X stands for one of the resonances chi_{c2}(1P), eta_c(2S), X(3872), X(3915), or chi_{c2}(2P). The analysis is performed with a data sample of 473.9 fb^{-1} collected with the BaBar detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy electron-positron collider. We do not observe a significant signal for any channel, and calculate 90% confidence-level upper limits on the products of branching fractions and two-photon widths Gamma(X -> gamma gamma)BR(X -> eta_c pi+ pi-): 15.7 eV for chi_{c2}(1P), 133 eV for eta_c(2S), 11.1 eV for X(3872) (assuming it to be a spin-2 state), 16 eV for X(3915) (assuming it to be a spin-2 state), and 19 eV for chi_{c2}(2P). We also report upper limits on the ratios of branching fractions BR(eta_c(2S) -> eta_c pi+ pi-)/BR(eta_c(2S)-> K_S^0 K+ pi-)...
We study the process $e^+e^-\to J/\psi\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ with initial-state-radiation events produced at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy collider. The data were recorded with the BaBar detector at center-of-mass energies 10.58 and 10.54 GeV, and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 454 $\mathrm{fb^{-1}}$. We investigate the $J/\psi \pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ mass distribution in the region from 3.5 to 5.5 $\mathrm{GeV/c^{2}}$. Below 3.7 $\mathrm{GeV/c^{2}}$ the $\psi(2S)$ signal dominates, and above 4 $\mathrm{GeV/c^{2}}$ there is a significant peak due to the Y(4260). A fit to the data in the range 3.74 -- 5.50 $\mathrm{GeV/c^{2}}$ yields a mass value $4244 \pm 5$ (stat) $ \pm 4$ (syst)$\mathrm{MeV/c^{2}}$ and a width value $114 ^{+16}_{-15}$ (stat)$ \pm 7$(syst)$\mathrm{MeV}$ for this state. We do not confirm the report from the Belle collaborat...
We present branching fraction measurements for the decays B0 -> rho0 K*0, B0 -> f0 K*0, and B0 -> rho- K*+, where K* is an S-wave (K pi)_0* or a K*(892) meson; we also measure B0 -> f0 K_2*(1430)^0. For the K*(892) channels, we report measurements of longitudinal polarization fractions (for rho final states) and direct CP-violation asymmetries. These results are obtained from a sample of (471.0 +/- 2.8) x 10^6 BBbar pairs collected with the BaBar detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy e+ e- collider at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. We observe rho0 K*(892)^0, rho0 (K pi)_0^{*0}, f0 K*(892)^0, and rho- K*(892)+ with greater than 5 sigma significance, including systematics. We report first evidence for f0 (K pi)_0^{*0} and f0 K_2*(1430)^0, and place an upper limit on rho- (K pi)_0^{*+}. Our results in the K*(892) channels ar...
We present the first results on the Dalitz-plot structure and improved measurements of the time-dependent CP-violation parameters of the process $B^0 \rightarrow K^0_S K^0_S K^0_S$ obtained using $468\times10^{6}$ $B\bar{B}$ decays collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy $B$ factory at SLAC. The Dalitz-plot structure is probed by a time-integrated amplitude analysis that does not distinguish between $B^0$ and $\bar{B}^0$ decays. We measure the total inclusive branching fraction ${\cal B}($B^0$ \rightarrow K^0_S K^0_S K^0_S)=\rm (6.19 \pm 0.48 \pm 0.15 \pm 0.12)\times 10^{-6}$, where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic, and the third represents the Dalitz-plot signal model dependence. We also observe evidence for the intermediate resonant states $f_0(980)$, $f_0(1710)$, and $f_2(2010)...
We search for the $Z_1(4050)^+$ and $Z_2(4250)^+$ states, reported by the Belle Collaboration, decaying to $\chi_{c1} \pi^+$ in the decays $\bar B^0 \to \chi_{c1} K^- \pi^+$ and $B^+ \to \chi_{c1} K^0_S \pi^+$ where $\chi_{c1} \to \jpsi \gamma$. The data were collected with the BaBar detector at the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric-energy $e^+e^-$ collider operating at center-of-mass energy 10.58 GeV, and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 429 fb$^{-1}$. No evidence is found for the $Z_1(4050)^+$ and $Z_2(4250)^+$ resonances, and 90% confidence level upper limits on the branching fractions are reported for the corresponding $B$-meson decay modes.
