Determination of spin and parity of the $Z_c(3900)$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71728
The spin and parity of the $Z_c(3900)^\pm$ state are determined to be $J^P=1^+$ with a statistical significance larger than $7\sigma$ over other quantum numbers in a partial wave analysis of the process $e^+e^-\to \pi^+\pi^-J/\psi$. We use a data sample of 1.92 fb$^{-1}$ accumulated at $\sqrt{s}=4.23$ and 4.26 GeV with the BESIII experiment. When parameterizing the $Z_c(3900)^\pm$ with a Flatte-like formula, we determine its pole mass $M_\textrm{pole}=(3881.2\pm4.2_\textrm{stat}\pm52.7_\textrm{syst})\textrm{MeV}/c^2$ and pole width $\Gamma_\textrm{pole}=(51.8\pm4.6_\textrm{stat}\pm36.0_\textrm{syst})\textrm{MeV}$. We also measure cross sections for the process $e^+e^-\to Z_c(3900)^+\pi^-+c.c.\to J/\psi\pi^+\pi^-$ and determine an upper limit at the 90\% confidence level for the process $e^+e^-\to Z_c(4020)^+\pi^-+c.c.\to J/\psi\pi^+\pi^-$.Ablikim, MedinaTue, 04 Jul 2017 09:11:30 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71728Observation of $e^{+}e^{-} \to \eta h_{c}$ at center-of-mass energies from 4.085 to 4.600 GeV
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71424
We observe for the first time the process $e^{+}e^{-} \rightarrow \eta h_c$ with data collected by the BESIII experiment. Significant signals are observed at the center-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s}=4.226$ GeV, and the Born cross section is measured to be $(9.5^{+2.2}_{-2.0} \pm 2.7)$ pb. Evidence for $\eta h_c$ is observed at $\sqrt{s}=4.358$ GeV with a Born cross section of $(10.0^{+3.1}_{-2.7} \pm 2.6)$ pb, and upper limits on the production cross section at other center-of-mass energies between 4.085 and 4.600 GeV are determined.Ablikim, MedinaTue, 02 May 2017 07:53:33 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71424Precise measurement of the $e^+e^-\to \pi^+\pi^-J/\psi$ cross section at center-of-mass energies from 3.77 to 4.60 GeV
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70760
The cross section for the process $e^+e^-\to \pi^+\pi^-J/\psi$ is measured precisely at center-of-mass energies from 3.77 to 4.60 GeV using 9 fb$^{-1}$ of data collected with the BESIII detector operating at the BEPCII storage ring. Two resonant structures are observed in a fit to the cross section. The first resonance has a mass of $(4222.0\pm 3.1\pm 1.4)$~MeV/$c^2$ and a width of $(44.1\pm 4.3\pm 2.0)$~MeV, while the second one has a mass of $(4320.0\pm 10.4 \pm 7.0)$~MeV/$c^2$ and a width of $(101.4^{+25.3}_{-19.7}\pm 10.2)$~MeV, where the first errors are statistical and second ones systematic. The first resonance is near $4.22$~GeV/$c^2$, corresponding to the so-called $Y(4260)$ resonance reported by previous experiments. However, our measured mass is lower and the width is narrower than previous measurements. The second structure is observed in $e^+e^-\to \pi^+\pi^-J/\psi$ for the first time. The statistical significance is estimated to be larger than $7.6\sigma$.Ablikim, MedinaFri, 02 Dec 2016 06:42:34 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70760Measurements of the branching fractions for $D^+\to K^0_SK^0_SK^+$, $K^0_SK^0_S\pi^+$ and $D^0\to K^0_SK^0_S$, $K^0_SK^0_SK^0_S$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70716
By analyzing $2.93\ \rm fb^{-1}$ of data taken at the $\psi(3770)$ resonance peak with the BESIII detector, we measure the branching fractions for the hadronic decays $D^+\to K^0_SK^0_S K^+$, $D^+\to K^0_SK^0_S \pi^+$, $D^0\to K^0_S K^0_S$ and $D^0\to K^0_SK^0_SK^0_S$. They are determined to be ${\mathcal B}(D^+\to K^0_SK^0_SK^+)=(2.54 \pm 0.05_{\rm stat.} \pm 0.12_{\rm sys.})\times 10^{-3}$, ${\mathcal B}(D^+\to K^0_SK^0_S\pi^+)=(2.70 \pm 0.05_{\rm stat.} \pm 0.12_{\rm sys.})\times 10^{-3}$, ${\mathcal B}(D^0\to K^0_SK^0_S)=(1.67 \pm 0.11_{\rm stat.} \pm 0.11_{\rm sys.})\times 10^{-4}$ and ${\mathcal B}(D^0\to K^0_SK^0_SK^0_S)=(7.21 \pm 0.33_{\rm stat.} \pm 0.44_{\rm sys.})\times 10^{-4}$, where the second one is measured for the first time and the others are measured with significantly improved precision over the previous measurements.Ablikim, MedinaFri, 02 Dec 2016 06:41:40 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70716Measurement of the Absolute Branching Fraction for $\Lambda_c^+\rightarrow \Lambda \mu^+\nu_{\mu}$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70714
We report the first measurement of the absolute branching fraction for $\Lambda^+_{c}\rightarrow \Lambda \mu^+\nu_{\mu}$. This measurement is based on a sample of $e^+e^-$ annihilation data at a center-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s}=4.6$ GeV collected with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII storage rings. The sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 567 pb$^{-1}$. The branching fraction is determined to be $\mathcal B({\Lambda^+_c\rightarrow \Lambda \mu^+\nu_{\mu}})=(3.49\pm0.46({\rm stat})\pm0.27({\rm syst}))\%$. In addition, we calculate the ratio $\mathcal{B}(\Lambda^+_c\rightarrow \Lambda \mu^+\nu_{\mu})/\mathcal{B}(\Lambda^+_c\rightarrow \Lambda e^+\nu_{e})$ to be $0.96\pm0.16({\rm stat})\pm0.04({\rm syst})$.Ablikim, MedinaFri, 02 Dec 2016 06:41:38 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70714Amplitude analysis of the $\chi_{c1} \to \eta\pi^+\pi^-$ decays
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70635
Using $448.0 \times 10^6$~$\psi(3686)$ events collected with the BESIII detector, an amplitude analysis is performed for $\psi(3686)\to\gamma\chi_{c1}$, $\chi_{c1}\to\eta\pi^+\pi^-$ decays. The most dominant two-body structure observed is $a_0(980)^{\pm}\pi^{\mp}$; $a_0(980)^{\pm}\to\eta\pi^{\pm}$. The $a_0(980)$ line shape is modeled using a dispersion relation, and a significant non-zero $a_0(980)$ coupling to the $\eta^{\prime}\pi$ channel is measured. We observe $\chi_{c1}\to a_2(1700)\pi$ production for the first time, with a significance larger than 17$\sigma$. The production of mesons with exotic quantum numbers, $J^{PC}=1^{-+}$, is investigated, and upper limits for the branching fractions $\chi_{c1}\to \pi_1(1400)^{\pm}\pi^{\mp}$, $\chi_{c1}\to \pi_1(1600)^{\pm}\pi^{\mp}$, and $\chi_{c1}\to\pi_1(2015)^{\pm}\pi^{\mp}$, with subsequent $\pi_1(X)^{\pm} \to \eta\pi^{\pm}$ decay, are determined.Ablikim, MedinaWed, 09 Nov 2016 07:57:32 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70635Measurement of Singly Cabibbo-Suppressed Decays $\Lambda_c^{+}\to p\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ and $\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{+}K^{-}$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70310
Using 567 $pb^{-1}$ of data collected with the BESIII detector at a center-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s}=$ 4.599 $GeV$, near the $\Lambda_{c}^{+}\Lambda_{c}^{-}$ threshold, we study the singly Cabibbo-suppressed decays $\Lambda_c^{+}\to p\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ and $\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{+}K^{-}$. By normalizing with respect to the Cabibbo-favored decay $\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{-}\pi^{+}$, we obtain ratios of branching fractions: $\frac{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_c^{+}\to p\pi^{+}\pi^{-})}{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{-}\pi^{+})}$ = $(6.70 \pm 0.48 \pm 0.25)\%$, $\frac{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_c^{+}\to p\phi)}{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{-}\pi^{+})}$ = $(1.81 \pm 0.33 \pm 0.13)\%$, and $\frac{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{+}K^{-}_{\text{non-}\phi})}{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{-}\pi^{+})}$ = $(9.36 \pm 2.22 \pm 0.71)\times10^{-3}$, where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. The absolute branching fractions are also presented. Among these measurements, the decay $\Lambda_c^{+}\to p\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ is observed for the first time, and the precision of the branching fraction for $\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{+}K^{-}_{\text{non-}\phi}$ and $\Lambda_c^{+}\to p\phi$ is significantly improved.Ablikim, MedinaFri, 02 Sep 2016 11:24:01 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70310Determination of the number of $J/\psi$ events with inclusive $J/\psi$ decays
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70201
A measurement of the number of $J/\psi$ events collected with the BESIII detector in 2009 and 2012 is performed using inclusive decays of the $J/\psi$ . The number of $J/\psi$ events taken in 2009 is recalculated to be $(223.7\pm1.4)\times 10^6$, which is in good agreement with the previous measurement, but with significantly improved precision due to improvements in the BESIII software. The number of $J/\psi$ events taken in 2012 is determined to be $(1086.9\pm 6.0)\times 10^6$. In total, the number of $J/\psi$ events collected with the BESIII detector is measured to be $(1310.6\pm 7.0)\times 10^6$, where the uncertainty is dominated by systematic effects and the statistical uncertainty is negligible.Ablikim, MedinaThu, 04 Aug 2016 07:47:13 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70201Amplitude analysis of the decays $\eta^\prime\rightarrow\pi^+\pi^-\pi^0$ and $\eta^\prime\rightarrow\pi^0\pi^0\pi^0$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69970
Based on a sample of $1.31\times10^9$ $J/\psi$ events collected with the BESIII detector, an amplitude analysis of the isospin violating decays $\eta^\prime\rightarrow\pi^+\pi^-\pi^0$ and $\eta^\prime\rightarrow\pi^0\pi^0\pi^0$ is performed. Significant $P$-wave contribution from $\eta^\prime\rightarrow\rho^{\pm}\pi^{\mp}$ is observed for the first time in $\eta^\prime\rightarrow\pi^+\pi^-\pi^0$. The branching fraction is determined to be ${\mathcal B}(\eta^\prime\rightarrow\rho^{\pm}\pi^{\mp})=(7.44\pm0.60\pm1.26\pm1.84)\times 10^{-4}$, where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second systematic and the third model dependent. In addition to the non-resonant $S$-wave component, a contribution from the $\sigma$ meson is also essential. The branching fractions of the $S$-wave components are determined as ${\mathcal B}(\eta^\prime\rightarrow\pi^+\pi^-\pi^0)_S=(37.63\pm0.77\pm2.22\pm4.48)\times 10^{-4}$ and ${\mathcal B}(\eta^\prime\rightarrow\pi^0\pi^0\pi^0)=(35.22\pm0.82\pm2.60)\times 10^{-4}$, respectively. The latter one is consistent with previous BESIII measurements.Ablikim, MedinaMon, 04 Jul 2016 11:04:10 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69970Observation of an anomalous line shape of the $\eta^{\prime}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ mass spectrum near the $p\bar{p}$ mass threshold in $J/\psi\rightarrow\gamma\eta^{\prime}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69754
Using $1.09\times10^{9}$ $J/\psi$ events collected by the BESIII experiment in 2012, we study the $J/\psi\rightarrow\gamma\eta^{\prime}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ process and observe a significant abrupt change in the slope of the $\eta^{\prime}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ invariant mass distribution at the proton-antiproton ($p\bar{p}$) mass threshold. We use two models to characterize the $\eta^{\prime}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ line shape around $1.85~\text{GeV}/c^{2}$: one which explicitly incorporates the opening of a decay threshold in the mass spectrum (Flatt\'{e} formula), and another which is the coherent sum of two resonant amplitudes. Both fits show almost equally good agreement with data, and suggest the existence of either a broad state around $1.85~\text{GeV}/c^{2}$ with strong couplings to $p\bar{p}$ final states or a narrow state just below the $p\bar{p}$ mass threshold. Although we cannot distinguish between the fits, either one supports the existence of a $p\bar{p}$ molecule-like state or bound state with greater than $7\sigma$ significance.Ablikim, MedinaWed, 04 May 2016 07:33:13 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69754Measurement of the leptonic decay width of $J/\psi$ using initial state radiation
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69742
Using a data set of 2.93 fb$^{-1}$ taken at a center-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s}$ = 3.773 GeV with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII collider, we measure the process $e^+e^-\rightarrow J/\psi\gamma\rightarrow \mu^+\mu^-\gamma$ and determine the product of the branching fraction and the electronic width $\mathcal B_{\mu\mu}\cdot \Gamma_{ee} = (333.4 \pm 2.5_{\rm stat} \pm 4.4_{\rm sys})$~eV. Using the earlier-published BESIII result for $\mathcal B_{\mu\mu}$ = (5.973 $\pm$ 0.007$_{\rm stat}$ $\pm$ 0.037$_{\rm sys}$)\%, we derive the $J/\psi$ electronic width $\Gamma_{ee}$~= (5.58 $\pm$ 0.05$_{\rm stat}$ $\pm$ 0.08$_{\rm sys}$) keV.Ablikim, MedinaWed, 04 May 2016 07:33:05 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69742Observation of $h_{c}$ radiative decay $h_{c} \rightarrow \gamma \eta'$ and evidence for $h_{c} \rightarrow \gamma \eta$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69576
A search for radiative decays of the $P$-wave spin singlet charmonium resonance $h_c$ is performed based on $4.48 \times 10^{8}$ $\psi'$ events collected with the BESIII detector operating at the BEPCII storage ring. Events of the reaction channels $h_{c} \rightarrow \gamma \eta'$ and $\gamma \eta$ are observed with a statistical significance of $8.4 \sigma$ and $4.0 \sigma$, respectively, for the first time. The branching fractions of $h_{c} \rightarrow \gamma \eta'$ and $h_{c} \rightarrow \gamma \eta$ are measured to be $\mathcal{B}(h_{c} \rightarrow \gamma \eta')=(1.52 \pm 0.27 \pm 0.29)\times10^{-3}$ and $\mathcal{B}(h_{c} \rightarrow \gamma \eta)=(4.7 \pm 1.5 \pm 1.4)\times10^{-4}$, respectively, where the first errors are statistical and the second are systematic uncertainties.Ablikim, M.Mon, 04 Apr 2016 08:12:54 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69576Study of $\psi$ decays to the $\Xi^{-}\bar\Xi^{+}$ and $\Sigma(1385)^{\mp}\bar\Sigma(1385)^{\pm}$ final states
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69442
We study the decays of the charmonium resonances $J/\psi$ and $\psi(3686)$ to the final states $\Xi^{-}\bar\Xi^{+}$, $\Sigma(1385)^{\mp}\bar\Sigma(1385)^{\pm}$ based on a single baryon tag method using data samples of $(223.7 \pm 1.4) \times 10^{6}$ $J/\psi$ and $(106.4 \pm 0.9) \times 10^{6}$ $\psi(3686)$ events collected with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII collider. The decay $\psi(3686)\rightarrow\Sigma(1385)^{\mp}\bar\Sigma(1385)^{\pm}$ is observed for the first time, and the measurements of the other processes, including the branching fractions and angular distributions, are in good agreement with and much more precise than the previously published results. Additionally, the ratios $\frac{{\cal{B}}(\psi(3686)\rightarrow\Xi^{-}\bar\Xi^{+})}{{\cal{B}}(J/\psi\rightarrow\Xi^{-}\bar\Xi^{+})}$, $\frac{{\cal{B}}(\psi(3686)\rightarrow\Sigma(1385)^{-}\bar\Sigma(1385)^{+})}{{\cal{B}}(J/\psi\rightarrow\Sigma(1385)^{-}\bar\Sigma(1385)^{+})}$ and $\frac{{\cal{B}}(\psi(3686)\rightarrow\Sigma(1385)^{+}\bar\Sigma(1385)^{-})}{{\cal{B}}(J/\psi\rightarrow\Sigma(1385)^{+}\bar\Sigma(1385)^{-})}$ are determined.Ablikim, MedinaFri, 11 Mar 2016 08:28:19 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69442Observation of pseudoscalar and tensor resonances in $J/\psi\rightarrow \gamma \phi \phi$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69415
Based on a sample of $(1310.6 \pm 10.5) \times 10^{6}$ $J/\psi$ events collected with the BESIII detector operating at the BEPCII storage ring, a partial wave analysis of the decay $J/\psi\rightarrow \gamma \phi \phi$ is performed in order to study the intermediate states. Results of the partial wave analysis show that the structures are predominantly $0^{-+}$ states. The existence of the $\eta(2225)$ is confirmed, and its resonance parameters are measured. Two additional pseudoscalar states, the $\eta(2100)$ with a mass of $2050_{-24}^{+30}{}_{-26}^{+75}$ MeV/$c^{2}$ and a width of $250_{-30}^{+36}{}_{-164}^{+181}$ MeV/$c^{2}$ and the $X(2500)$ with a mass of $2470_{-19}^{+15}{}_{-23}^{+101}$ MeV/$c^{2}$ and a width of $230_{-35}^{+64}{}_{-33}^{+56}$ MeV/$c^{2}$, are observed. In addition to these three pseudoscalar states, the scalar state $f_0(2100)$, and three tensor states, the $f_2(2010)$, $f_2(2300)$ and $f_2(2340)$, are observed in the process $J/\psi\rightarrow \gamma \phi\phi$. The product branching fractions $\cal B$($J/\psi\rightarrow \gamma X\rightarrow \gamma \phi \phi$) are reported.Ablikim, MedinaFri, 11 Mar 2016 08:28:06 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69415Measurements of Absolute Hadronic Branching Fractions of $\Lambda_{c}^{+}$ Baryon
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69106
Using $567\rm{pb}^{-1}$ of $e^+e^-$ collisions recorded at $\sqrt{s}=4.599\rm{GeV}$ with the BESIII detector, we report first measurements of absolute hadronic branching fractions of Cabibbo-favored decays of the $\Lambda_{c}^{+}$ baryon with a double-tag technique. A global least-square fitter is utilized to improve the measured precision. Among the measurements for twelve $\Lambda_{c}^{+}$ decay modes, the branching fraction for $\Lambda_{c}^{+} \rightarrow pK^-\pi^+$ is determined to be $(5.84\pm0.27\pm0.23)\%$, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic. In addition, the measurements of the branching fractions of the other eleven Cabbibo-favored hadronic decay modes are significantly improved.Ablikim, M.Mon, 11 Jan 2016 08:22:03 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69106Observation of $e^+e^- \rightarrow \omega \chi_{c1,2}$ near $\sqrt{s}$ = 4.42 and 4.6 GeV
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69105
Based on data samples collected with the BESIII detector operating at the BEPCII storage ring at center-of-mass energies $\sqrt{s} >$ 4.4 GeV, the processes $e^+e^- \rightarrow \omega \chi_{c1,2}$ are observed for the first time. With an integrated luminosity of $1074 pb^{-1}$ near $\sqrt{s} =$ 4.42 GeV, a significant $\omega \chi_{c2}$ signal is found, and the cross section is measured to be $(20.9 \pm 3.2 \pm 2.5)$\pb. With $567 pb^{-1}$ near $\sqrt{s} =$ 4.6 GeV, a clear $\omega \chi_{c1}$ signal is seen, and the cross section is measured to be $(9.5 \pm 2.1 \pm 1.3)$ \pb, while evidence is found for an $\omega \chi_{c2}$ signal. The first errors are statistical and the second are systematic. Due to low luminosity or low cross section at other energies, no significant signals are observed. In the $\omega \chi_{c2}$ cross section, an enhancement is seen around $\sqrt{s} =$ 4.42 GeV. Fitting the cross section with a coherent sum of the $\psi(4415)$ Breit-Wigner function and a phase space term, the branching fraction $\mathcal{B}(\psi(4415)\to\omega\chi_{c2})$ is obtained to be of the order of $10^{-3}$.Ablikim, M.Mon, 11 Jan 2016 08:22:02 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69105Observation of the Singly Cabibbo-Suppressed Decay $D^{+}\to\omega\pi^{+}$ and Evidence for $D^{0}\to\omega\pi^{0}$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69059
Based on 2.93 fb$^{-1}$ $e^+e^-$ collision data taken at center-of-mass energy of 3.773 GeV by the BESIII detector, we report searches for the singly Cabibbo-suppressed decays $D^{+}\to\omega\pi^{+}$ and $D^{0}\to\omega\pi^{0}$. A double tag technique is used to measure the absolute branching fractions $\mathcal{B}(D^{+}\to\omega\pi^{+})=(2.79\pm0.57\pm0.16)\times 10^{-4}$ and $\mathcal{B}(D^{0}\to\omega\pi^{0})=(1.17\pm0.34\pm0.07)\times 10^{-4}$, with statistical significances of $5.5\sigma$ and $4.1\sigma$, respectively. We also present measurements of the absolute branching fractions for the related $\eta \pi$ decay modes. We find $\mathcal{B}(D^{+}\to\eta\pi^{+})=(3.07\pm0.22\pm0.13)\times10^{-3}$ and $\mathcal{B}(D^{0}\to\eta\pi^{0})=(0.65\pm0.09\pm0.04)\times10^{-3}$, which are consistent with the current world averages. The first and second uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively.Ablikim, M.Mon, 11 Jan 2016 08:19:48 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69059Study of $J/\psi\to p\bar{p}\phi$ at BESIII
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69055
Using a data sample of $1.31 \times 10^{9}$ $J/\psi$ events accumulated with the BESIII detector, the decay $J/\psi\to p\bar{p}\phi$ is studied via two decay modes, $\phi\to K^{0}_{S}K^{0}_{L}$ and $\phi\to K^{+}K^{-}$. The branching fraction of $J/\psi\to p\bar{p}\phi$ is measured to be $\mathcal{B}(J/\psi\to p\bar{p}\phi)=[5.23\pm0.06(\mbox{stat})\pm0.33(\mbox{syst})]\times10^{-5}$, which agrees well with a previously published measurement, but with a significantly improved precision. No evident enhancement near the $p\bar{p}$ mass threshold, denoted as $X(p\bar{p})$, is observed, and the upper limit on the branching fraction of $J/\psi\to X(p\bar{p})\phi\to p\bar{p}\phi$ is determined to be $\mathcal{B}(J/\psi\to X(p\bar{p})\phi\to p\bar{p}\phi)<2.1\times10^{-7}$ at the 90\% confidence level.Ablikim, MedinaMon, 11 Jan 2016 08:19:39 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69055Study of $D^{+} \to K^{-} \pi^+ e^+ \nu_e$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69053
We present an analysis of the decay $D^{+} \to K^{-} \pi^+ e^+ \nu_e$ based on data collected by the BESIII experiment at the $\psi(3770)$ resonance. Using a nearly background-free sample of 18262 events, we measure the branching fraction $\mathcal{B}(D^{+} \to K^{-} \pi^+ e^+ \nu_e) = (3.71 \pm 0.03 \pm 0.08)\%$. For $0.8<m_{K\pi}<1.0$ GeV/$c^{2}$ the partial branching fraction is $\mathcal{B}(D^{+} \to K^{-} \pi^+ e^+ \nu_e)_{[0.8,1]} = (3.33 \pm 0.03 \pm 0.07)\%$. A partial wave analysis shows that the dominant $\bar K^{*}(892)^{0}$ component is accompanied by an \emph{S}-wave contribution accounting for $(6.05\pm0.22\pm0.18)\%$ of the total rate and that other components are negligible. The parameters of the $\bar K^{*}(892)^{0}$ resonance and of the form factors based on the spectroscopic pole dominance predictions are also measured. We also present a measurement of the $\bar K^{*}(892)^{0}$ helicity basis form factors in a model-independent way.Ablikim, M.Mon, 11 Jan 2016 08:19:32 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69053Measurement of the center-of-mass energies at BESIII via the di-muon process
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69025
From 2011 to 2014, the BESIII experiment collected about 5 fb$^{-1}$ data at center-of-mass energies around 4 GeV for the studies of the charmonium-like and higher excited charmonium states. By analyzing the di-muon process $e^{+}e^{-}\rightarrow\gamma_{\rm ISR/FSR}\mu^{+}\mu^{-}$, the center-of-mass energies of the data samples are measured with a precision of 0.8 MeV. The center-of-mass energy is found to be stable for most of time during the data taking.Ablikim, M.Tue, 01 Dec 2015 08:57:02 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69025Measurement of the branching fraction for $\psi(3770) \to \gamma\chi_{c0}$

By analyzing a data set of 2.92 fb$^{-1}$ of $e^+e^-$ collision data taken at $\sqrt s= 3.773~\rm GeV$ and 106.41$\times 10^{6}$ $\psi(3686)$ decays taken at $\sqrt s= 3.686~\rm GeV$ with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII collider, we measure the branching fraction and the partial decay width for $\psi(3770)\to\gamma\chi_{c0}$ to be ${\mathcal B}(\psi(3770)\to\gamma\chi_{c0})=(6.88\pm0.28\pm0.67)\times 10^{-3}$ and $\Gamma[\psi(3770)\to\gamma\chi_{c0}]=(187\pm8\pm19)~\rm keV$, respectively. These are the most precise measurements to date.Ablikim, M.Tue, 01 Dec 2015 08:56:54 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69018Study of decay dynamics and $CP$ asymmetry in $D^+ \to K^0_L e^+ \nu_e$ decay
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/68922
Using 2.92~fb$^{-1}$ of electron-positron annihilation data collected at $\sqrt{s} = 3.773$~GeV with the BESIII detector, we obtain the first measurements of the absolute branching fraction $\mathcal{B}(D^+ \to K^0_L e^+ \nu_e) = (4.481 \pm 0.027(\mathrm{stat.}) \pm 0.103(\mathrm{sys.}))\%$ and the $CP$ asymmetry $A_{CP}^{D^+ \to K^0_L e^+ \nu_e} = (-0.59 \pm 0.60(\mathrm{stat.}) \pm 1.48(\mathrm{sys.}))\%$. From the $D^+ \to K^0_L e^+ \nu_e$ differential decay rate distribution, the product of the hadronic form factor and the magnitude of the CKM matrix element, $f_{+}^{K}(0)|V_{cs}|$, is determined to be $0.728 \pm 0.006(\mathrm{stat.}) \pm 0.011(\mathrm{sys.})$. Using $|V_{cs}|$ from the SM constrained fit with the measured $f_{+}^{K}(0)|V_{cs}|$, $f_{+}^{K}(0) = 0.748 \pm 0.007(\mathrm{stat.}) \pm 0.012(\mathrm{sys.})$ is obtained, and utilizing the unquenched LQCD calculation for $f_{+}^{K}(0)$, $|V_{cs}| = 0.975 \pm 0.008(\mathrm{stat.}) \pm 0.015(\mathrm{sys.}) \pm 0.025(\mathrm{LQCD})$.Ablikim, M.Mon, 02 Nov 2015 10:57:18 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/68922Measurement of the absolute branching fraction for $\Lambda^+_{c}\to \Lambda e^+\nu_e$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/68919
We report the first absolute measurement of the branching fraction of $\Lambda^+_{c}\rightarrow \Lambda e^+\nu_e$. This measurement is based on 567 pb$^{-1}$ of $e^+e^-$ annihilation data produced at $\sqrt{s}=4.599$ GeV, which is just above the $\Lambda^+_c\bar{\Lambda}^-_c$ threshold. The data were collected with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII storage rings. The branching fraction is determined to be $\mathcal B({\Lambda^+_c\rightarrow \Lambda e^+\nu_e})=(3.63\pm0.38({\rm stat})\pm0.20({\rm syst}))\%$, representing a more than twofold improvement in precision upon previously published results. As the branching fraction for $\Lambda^+_{c}\rightarrow \Lambda e^+\nu_e$ is the benchmark for those of other $\Lambda^+_c$ semileptonic channels, our result provides a unique test of different theoretical models, which is the most stringent to date.Ablikim, M.Mon, 02 Nov 2015 10:57:12 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/68919Study of Dynamics of $D^0 \to K^- e^+ \nu_{e}$ and $D^0\to\pi^- e^+ \nu_{e}$ Decays
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/68808
In an analysis of a 2.92~fb$^{-1}$ data sample taken at 3.773~GeV with the BESIII detector operated at the BEPCII collider, we measure the absolute decay branching fractions to be $\mathcal B(D^0 \to K^-e^+\nu_e)=(3.505\pm 0.014 \pm 0.033)\%$ and $\mathcal B(D^0 \to \pi^-e^+\nu_e)=(0.295\pm 0.004\pm 0.003)\%$. From a study of the differential decay rates we obtain the products of hadronic form factor and the magnitude of the CKM matrix element $f_{+}^K(0)|V_{cs}|=0.7172\pm0.0025\pm 0.0035$ and $f_{+}^{\pi}(0)|V_{cd}|=0.1435\pm0.0018\pm 0.0009$. Combining these products with the values of $|V_{cs(d)}|$ from the SM constraint fit, we extract the hadronic form factors $f^K_+(0) = 0.7368\pm0.0026\pm 0.0036$ and $f^\pi_+(0) = 0.6372\pm0.0080\pm 0.0044$, and their ratio $f_+^{\pi}(0)/f_+^{K}(0)=0.8649\pm 0.0112\pm 0.0073$. These form factors and their ratio are used to test unquenched Lattice QCD calculations of the form factors and a light cone sum rule (LCSR) calculation of their ratio. The measured value of $f_+^{K(\pi)}(0) |V_{cs(d)}|$ and the lattice QCD value for $f^{K(\pi)}_+(0)$ are used to extract values of the CKM matrix elements of $|V_{cs}|=0.9601 \pm 0.0033 \pm 0.0047 \pm 0.0239$ and $|V_{cd}|=0.2155 \pm 0.0027 \pm 0.0014 \pm 0.0094$, where the third errors are due to the uncertainties in lattice QCD calculations of the form factors. Using the LCSR value for $f_+^\pi(0)/f_+^K(0)$, we determine the ratio $|V_{cd}|/|V_{cs}|=0.238\pm 0.004\pm 0.002\pm 0.011$, where the third error is from the uncertainty in the LCSR normalization. In addition, we measure form factor parameters for three different theoretical models that describe the weak hadronic charged currents for these two semileptonic decays. All of these measurements are the most precise to date.Ablikim, M.Thu, 01 Oct 2015 11:05:19 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/68808Measurement of the form factors in the decay $D^+ \to \omega e^+ \nu_{e}$ and search for the decay $D^+ \to \phi e^+ \nu_{e}$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/68684
Using 2.92 fb$^{-1}$ of electron-positron annihilation data collected at a center-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s}= 3.773$ GeV with the BESIII detector, we present an improved measurement of the branching fraction $\mathcal{B}(D^+ \to \omega e^+ \nu_{e}) = (1.63\pm0.11\pm0.08)\times 10^{-3}$. The parameters defining the corresponding hadronic form factor ratios at zero momentum transfer are determined for the first time, we measure them to be $r_V = 1.24\pm0.09\pm0.06$ and $r_2 = 1.06\pm0.15 \pm 0.05$. The first and second uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. We also search for the decay $D^+ \to \phi e^+ \nu_{e}$. An improved upper limit $\mathcal{B}(D^+ \to \phi e^+ \nu_{e}) < 1.3 \times 10^{-5}$ is set at 90\% confidence level.Ablikim, M.Mon, 31 Aug 2015 12:42:56 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/68684
