Observation of sizeable ω contribution to χc1 (3872) →π+π-J/ψ decays

(LHCb Collaboration)

Research output: Indexed journal article Articlepeer-review


Resonant structures in the dipion mass spectrum from χc1(3872)→π+π-J/ψ decays, produced via B+→K+χc1(3872) decays, are analyzed using proton-proton collision data collected by the LHCb experiment, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 9 fb-1. A sizeable contribution from the isospin conserving χc1(3872)→ωJ/ψ decay is established for the first time, (21.4±2.3±2.0)%, with a significance of more than 7.1σ. The amplitude of isospin violating decay, χc1(3872)→ρ0J/ψ, relative to isospin conserving decay, χc1(3872)→ωJ/ψ, is properly determined, and it is a factor of 6 larger than expected for a pure charmonium state.
