Abstract

We report the first branching fraction measurement of the decay KL → π+π-e+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+π-e+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.
