Measurement of the decay of the {Upsilon}(1S) and {Upsilon}(2S) resonances to muon pairs

Technical Report:

Abstract

Using the Crystal Ball detector at the e{sup -}e{sup +} storage ring DORIS II, we have measured the branching fraction to muon pairs B{sub {mu}{mu}} of the {Upsilon}(1s) and {gamma}(2S) resonances and for the first time the product of the muonic partial width {Gamma}{sub {mu}{mu}} and the branching fraction to electrons B{sub ee} for both resonances. We obtain B{sub {mu}{mu}}(1S) = (2.31 {+-} 0.12 {+-} 0.10)% {Gamma}{sub {mu}{mu}}(1S).B{sub ee}(1S) = (31.2 {+-} 1.6 {+-} 1.7) eV and B{sub {mu}{mu}}(2S) = (1.22 {+-} 0.28 {+-} 0.19)% {Gamma}{sub {mu}{mu}}(2S).B{sub ee}(2S) = (6.5 {+-} 1.5 {+-} 1.0) eV. Inserting the present world average value of B{sub ee}(1S) = (2.52 {+-} 0.17)%, we determine the muonic partial width of the {Upsilon}(1S) as {Gamma}{sub {mu}{mu}}(1S) = (1.24 {+-} 0.06 {+-} 0.11) keV. In addtiion, we present the first indication of the expected interference between {mu}-pair production in the continuum and in {Upsilon}(1S) decays. (orig.).
