Measurement of J/ψ production in continuum e+e- annihilations near √s = 10.6 GeV

The BABAR Collaboration

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The production of J/ψ mesons in continuum e+e- annihilations has been studied with the BABAR detector at energies near the Υ(4S) resonance. The mesons are distinguished from J/ψ production in B decays through their center-of-mass momentum and energy. We measure the cross section e+e- → J/ψX to be 2.52 ± 0.21 ± 0.21pb. We set a 90% C.L. upper limit on the branching fraction for direct Υ(4S) → J/ψX decays at 4.7 × 10-4.
