Aubert, B. et al. (2006) Observation of e+e- Annihilation into the C=+1 Hadronic Final States ρ0ρ0 and ϕρ0. Physical Review Letters, 97 (11). p. 112002. ISSN 0031-9007Metadata only available from this repository.
We report the first observation of e+e- annihilation into states of positive C parity, namely, ρ0ρ0 and ϕρ0. The two states are observed in the π+π-π+π- and K+K-π+π- final states, respectively, in a data sample of 225 fb-1 collected by the BABAR experiment at the Positron-Electron Project II e+e- storage rings at energies near √s=10.58 GeV. The distributions of cosθ*, where θ* is the center-of-mass polar angle of the ϕ meson or the forward ρ0 meson, suggest production by two-virtual-photon annihilation. We measure cross sections within the range |cosθ*|<0.8 of σ(e+e-→ρ0ρ0)=20.7±0.7(stat)±2.7(syst) fb and σ(e+e-→ϕρ0)=5.7±0.5(stat)±0.8(syst) fb.
