Evidence for b → d γ transitions from a sum of exclusive final states in the hadronic final state mass range 1.0GeV/c2< M(Xd) < 1.8GeV/c2

We present preliminary results of a search for B → Xdγ decays with a hadronic mass 1.0 GeV/c2 < M(Xd) < 1.8 GeV/c2. We consider seven final states with up to four charged pions and one neutral pion or η, which correspond to about 50% of the total Xd fragmentation in this mass range. Based on a sample of 383 million B ̄B events collected by the BaBar experiment at PEPII, we measure a partial branching fraction P7 Xd=1 B(B → Xdγ)|(1.0GeV/c2 < M(Xd) < 1.8GeV/c2) = (3.1±0.9+0.6 -0.5 ±0.5) · 10-6, where the uncertainties are statistical, systematic and model-dependent respectively.
