Abstract

We describe searches for B meson decays to the charmless vector-vector final states ωK* and ωρ in 89 × 106BB̄ pairs produced in e+e-annihilation at √s = 10.58 GeV. We measure the following branching fractions in units of 10-6: B(B0→ ωK*0) = 3.4-1.6+1.8± 0.4(<6.0), B(B+→ ωK*+) = 3.5-2.0+2.5± 0.7(<7.4), B(B0→ ωρ0) = 0.6-1.1+1.3± 0.4(<3.3), and B(B+→ ωρ+) = 12.6-3.3+3.7± 1.6. The first error quoted is statistical, the second systematic, and the upper limits are defined at 90% confidence level. For B+→ ωρ+we also measure the longitudinal spin alignment fraction fL= 0.88-0.15+0.12± 0.03 and charge asymmetry Ach= (5 ± 26 ± 2)%. © 2005 The American Physical Society.
