Measurement of the branching fractions for ψ(2S)→e+e- and ψ(2S)→μ+μ-


We measure the branching fractions of the Ψ(2S) meson to the leptonic final states e+e- and μ+μ- relative to that for Ψ(2S)→J/Ψπ_. The method uses Ψ(2S) mesons produced in the decay of B mesons at the Y(45) resonance in a data sample collected with the BABAR detector at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. Using previous measurements for the Ψ(2S) →J/Ψπ+π- branching fraction, we determine the e+e- and π+π- branching fractions to be 0.0078±0.0009±0.0008 and 0.0067±0. 0008±0.0007, respectively. © 2001 The American Physical Society.
