Title: Measurement of the decay η ' π 0 π 0 η at MAMI

Abstract

An experimental study of the η' → π 0π 0η → 6$$\gamma$$ decay has been conducted with the best up- to-date statistical accuracy, by measuring η' mesons produced in the $$\gamma$$p → η'p reaction with the A2 tagged-photon facility at the Mainz Microtron, MAMI. The results obtained for the standard parametrization of the η' → π 0π 0η matrix element are consistent with the most recent results for η' → ππη decays, but have smaller uncertainties. Finally, the available statistics and experimental resolution allowed, for the first time, an observation of a structure below the π +π - mass threshold, the magnitude and sign of which, checked within the framework of the nonrelativistic effective-field theory, demonstrated good agreement with the cusp that was predicted based on the ππ scattering length combination, a 0 - a 2, extracted from K → 3π decays.
