Abstract

BABAR is a solenoidal detector optimized for the asymmetric-energy beams at PEP-II and is described in detail. As such, charged particle (track) momenta are measured with a 5-layer double-sided silicon vertex tracker and a 40-layer drift chamber (DCH) inside a 1.5 T superconducting solenoidal magnet. This paper reports on an observation of the decays B ± →π ± π 0 and B ± →K ± π 0 , a measurement of their CP-violating charge asymmetries, and a search for the decay B 0 →π 0 π 0 , using (87.9±1.0)×10 6 BB̄ pairs collected with the BABAR detector.
