Title: Study of B ±,0 → J/ψ K + K K ±,0 and search for B 0 → J/ψΦ at Babar

Abstract

We study the rare B meson decays B ±,0 → J/ψK +K K ±,0, B ±,0 → J/ψΦK ±,0, and search for B 0 → J/ψΦ, using 469 million BB¯ events collected at the Υ(4S) resonance with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II e +e asymmetric energy collider. We present new measurements of branching fractions and a study of the J/ψΦ mass distribution in search of new charmonium-like states. In addition, we search for the decay B 0 → J/ψΦ and find no evidence of a signal.
