Title: Evidence for e + e - γ η c ( 1 S ) at center-of-mass energies between 4.01 and 4.60 GeV

Abstract

In this paper, we present first evidence for the process e +e - → γη c(1S) at six center-of-mass energies between 4.01 and 4.60 GeV using data collected by the BESIII experiment operating at BEPCII. We measure the Born cross section at each energy using a combination of twelve η c(1S) decay channels. We also combine all six energies under various assumptions for the energy-dependence of the cross section. Finally, if the process is assumed to proceed via the Y (4260), we measure a peak Born cross section σ peak (e +e - → γη c(1S)) = 2.11 ± 0.49(stat.) ± 0.36(syst.) pb with a statistical significance of 4.2σ.

abstractNote = {In this paper, we present first evidence for the process e+e- → γηc(1S) at six center-of-mass energies between 4.01 and 4.60 GeV using data collected by the BESIII experiment operating at BEPCII. We measure the Born cross section at each energy using a combination of twelve ηc(1S) decay channels. We also combine all six energies under various assumptions for the energy-dependence of the cross section. Finally, if the process is assumed to proceed via the Y (4260), we measure a peak Born cross section σpeak (e+e- → γηc(1S)) = 2.11 ± 0.49(stat.) ± 0.36(syst.) pb with a statistical significance of 4.2σ.},

FIG. 1 FIG. 1: The recoil-mass distribution of the transition pho- ton summed over all ηc decay channels. Results from the simultaneous fits are overlaid. In (a-f) the fits are performed separately at each energy; in (g) and (h) the data are combined and fit with the σY(4260) and σFLAT assumptions, respectively.more » Pull distributions, derived by comparing the t projections and the data, are shown below each plot.
