Abstract

We report the first branching fraction measurement of the decay KL→π+πe+e.With a sample of 46 candidates, and an expected background level of 9.4 events, the branching fraction is determined to be B(KL→π+πe+e) = [3.2±0.6(stat)±0.4(syst)]×10−7.This measurement was carried out as part of the Fermilab KTeV (E799-II) experiment and is in good agreement with the expectations from the mechanisms of direct emission and inner bremsstrahlung.
