A Study of Exclusive Final States in Radiative ψ Decays


Edwards, Charles David, Jr. (1985) A Study of Exclusive Final States in Radiative ψ Decays. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/evh8-gk53.


Using the Crystal Ball Detector at the SPEAR e+e- storage ring of the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, several exclusive final states in radiative ψ decays are studied. Signals are observed for the processes ψ→γπ0, γγρ0, and γρ+ρ-, and an upper limit is placed on the decay rate for ψ→ηη'. Experimental results are discussed in light of previous results in radiative ψ decays, and with respect to theoretical predictions for gluonic mesons.
