Title: Observation of the helicity-selection-rule suppressed decay of the χ c 2 charmonium state

Abstract

The decays of χ c 2 → K +K -π 0, K SK ±π , and π +π -π 0 are studied with the ψ ( 3686 ) data samples collected with the Beijing Spectrometer (BESIII). For the first time, the branching fractions of χ c 2 → K*$$\bar{K}$$ , χ c 2 → $$a_2^±$$(1320)π /$$a_2^0$$(1320)π 0, and χ c 2 → ρ( 770 ) ±π are measured. Here, K*$$\bar{K}$$ denotes both K* ±K and its isospin-conjugated process K* 0$$\bar{K}$$ 0+c.c., and K* denotes the resonances K*(892), $$K_2^*$$(1430), and $$K_3^*$$(1780). The observations indicate a strong violation of the helicity selection rule in χ c 2 decays into vector and pseudoscalar meson pairs. The measured branching fractions of χ c 2 → K*(892)$$\bar{K}$$ are more than ten times larger than the upper limit of χ c 2 → ρ ( 770 ) ±π , which is so far the first direct observation of a significant U -spin symmetry breaking effect in charmonium decays.

abstractNote = {The decays of χc2 → K+K-π0, KSK±π∓, and π+π-π0 are studied with the ψ ( 3686 ) data samples collected with the Beijing Spectrometer (BESIII). For the first time, the branching fractions of χc2 → K*$\bar{K}$ , χc2 → $a_2^±$(1320)π∓/$a_2^0$(1320)π0, and χc2 → ρ( 770 )±π∓ are measured. Here, K*$\bar{K}$ denotes both K*±K∓ and its isospin-conjugated process K*0$\bar{K}$0+c.c., and K* denotes the resonances K*(892), $K_2^*$(1430), and $K_3^*$(1780). The observations indicate a strong violation of the helicity selection rule in χc2 decays into vector and pseudoscalar meson pairs. The measured branching fractions of χc2 → K*(892)$\bar{K}$ are more than ten times larger than the upper limit of χc2 → ρ ( 770 )±π∓, which is so far the first direct observation of a significant U -spin symmetry breaking effect in charmonium decays.},
