Title: Study of two-photon decays of pseudoscalar mesons via J / ψ radiative decays

Abstract

Using a sample of 4.48 × 10 8 ψ(3686) events collected with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII collider, we study the two-photon decays of the pseudoscalar mesons π⁰, η, η', η(1405), η(1475), η(1760), and X(1835) in J/ψ radiative decays using ψ(3686) → π⁺π⁻J/ψ events. The π⁰, η and η' mesons are clearly observed in the two-photon mass spectra, and the branching fractions are determined to be B(J/ψ → γπ⁰ → 3γ) = (3.57 ± 0.12 ± 0.16) × 10 -5, B(J/ψ → γη → 3γ) =(4.42 ± 0.04 ± 0.18) × 10 -4, and B(J/ψ → γη' → 3γ) = (1.26 ± 0.02 ± 0.05) × 10 -4, where the first errors are statistical and the second systematic. No clear signal for η(1405), η(1475), η(1760) or X(1835) is observed in the two-photon mass spectra, and upper limits at the 90% confidence level on the product branching fractions are obtained.

abstractNote = {Using a sample of 4.48 × 108 ψ(3686) events collected with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII collider, we study the two-photon decays of the pseudoscalar mesons π⁰, η, η', η(1405), η(1475), η(1760), and X(1835) in J/ψ radiative decays using ψ(3686) → π⁺π⁻J/ψ events. The π⁰, η and η' mesons are clearly observed in the two-photon mass spectra, and the branching fractions are determined to be B(J/ψ → γπ⁰ → 3γ) = (3.57 ± 0.12 ± 0.16) × 10-5, B(J/ψ → γη → 3γ) =(4.42 ± 0.04 ± 0.18) × 10-4, and B(J/ψ → γη' → 3γ) = (1.26 ± 0.02 ± 0.05) × 10-4, where the first errors are statistical and the second systematic. No clear signal for η(1405), η(1475), η(1760) or X(1835) is observed in the two-photon mass spectra, and upper limits at the 90% confidence level on the product branching fractions are obtained.},
