Title: Observation of η c ω ω in J / ψ γ ω ω

Abstract

Using a sample of (1310.6 ± 7.0) × 106 J/ψ events recorded with the Beijing Spectrometer III detector at the Beijing Electron Positron Collider II, we report the observation of the decay of the (11S0) charmonium state ηc into a pair of ω mesons in the process J/ψ → γωω. The branching fraction is measured for the first time to be B(ηc → ωω) = (2.88 ± 0.10 ± 0.46 ± 0.68) × 10–3, where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second systematic, and the third is from the uncertainty of B(J/ψ → γηc). The mass and width of the ηc are determined as M = (2985.9 ± 0.7 ± 2.1) MeV/c2 and Γ = (33.8 ± 1.6 ± 4.1) MeV.

abstractNote = {Using a sample of (1310.6 ± 7.0) × 106 J/ψ events recorded with the Beijing Spectrometer III detector at the Beijing Electron Positron Collider II, we report the observation of the decay of the (11S0) charmonium state ηc into a pair of ω mesons in the process J/ψ → γωω. The branching fraction is measured for the first time to be B(ηc → ωω) = (2.88 ± 0.10 ± 0.46 ± 0.68) × 10–3, where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second systematic, and the third is from the uncertainty of B(J/ψ → γηc). The mass and width of the ηc are determined as M = (2985.9 ± 0.7 ± 2.1) MeV/c2 and Γ = (33.8 ± 1.6 ± 4.1) MeV.},
