Aubert, B. et al. (2005) Improved Measurement of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa Angle α Using B0(B¯)→ρ+ρ- Decays. Physical Review Letters, 95 (4). 041805. ISSN 0031-9007

We present results from an analysis of B0(B̅ 0)→ρ+ρ- using 232×106 Υ(4S)→BB̅ decays collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B factory at SLAC. We measure the longitudinal polarization fraction fL=0.978±0.014(stat)+0.021/-0.029(syst) and the CP-violating parameters SL=-0.33±0.24(stat)+0.08/-0.14(syst) and CL=-0.03±0.18(stat)±0.09(syst). Using an isospin analysis of B→ρρ decays, we determine the unitarity triangle parameter α. The solution compatible with the standard model is α=(100±13)°.
