Aubert, B. et al. (2009) Angular distributions in the decay B→K*l+l-. Physical Review D, 79 (3). 031102. ISSN 1550-7998

We use a sample of 384×106 BB̅ events collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II e+e- collider to study angular distributions in the rare decays B→K*ℓ+ℓ-, where ℓ+ℓ- is either e+e- or μ+μ-. For low dilepton invariant masses, mℓℓ<2.5  GeV/c2, we measure a lepton forward-backward asymmetry AFB=0.24-0.23+0.18±0.05 and K* longitudinal polarization FL=0.35±0.16±0.04. For mℓℓ>3.2  GeV/c2, we measure AFB=0.76-0.32+0.52±0.07 and FL=0.71-0.22+0.20±0.04.
