Aubert, B. et al. (2009) Observation of B meson decays to ωK* and improved measurements for ωρ and ωf0. Physical Review D, 79 (5). 052005. ISSN 1550-7998Metadata only available from this repository.
We present measurements of B meson decays to the final states ωK*, ωρ, and ωf0, where K* indicates a spin 0, 1, or 2 strange meson. The data sample corresponds to 465×106 BB̅ pairs collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II e+e- collider at SLAC. B meson decays involving vector-scalar, vector-vector, and vector-tensor final states are analyzed; the latter two shed new light on the polarization of these final states. We measure the branching fractions for nine of these decays; five are observed for the first time. For most decays we also measure the charge asymmetry and, where relevant, the longitudinal polarization fL.
