Title: U boson at the BES III detector

Abstract

The O(MeV) spin-1 U boson has been proposed to mediate the interaction among electron-positron and O(MeV) dark matter, in order to account for the 511 keV {gamma}-ray observation by SPI/INTEGRAL. In this paper the observability of such a kind of U boson at BESIII is investigated through the processes e{sup +}e{sup -}{yields}U{gamma} and e{sup +}e{sup -}{yields}J/{psi}{yields}e{sup +}e{sup -}U. We find that BESIII and high luminosity B factories have a comparable capacity to detect such a U boson. If the U boson decays mainly into dark matter, i.e. invisibly, BESIII can measure the coupling between the U boson and an electron-positron pair g{sub eR} (see text) down to O(10{sup -5}), and cover large parameter space which can account for 511 keV {gamma}-ray observation. On the other hand, provided that U decays mainly into the electron-positron, BESIII can detect g{sub eR} down to O(10{sup -3}), and it is hard to explore the 511 keV {gamma}-ray measurement allowed parameter space due to the irreducible QED backgrounds.
