Abstract

The E799-II (KTeV) experiment at Fermilab has collected 83262 KL→e+e-γ(γ) events above a background of 79 events. We measure a decay width, normalized to the KL→π0π0πD0 (π0→γ γ, π0→γγ, πD0→e+e-γ(γ)) decay width, of Γ(KL→e+e-γ(γ))/ Γ(KL→π0π0πD0)=(1.3302±0.0046stat±0.0102syst) ×10-3. We also measure parameters of two KLγ*γ form factor models. In the Bergström-Massó-Singer parametrization, we find CαK*=-0.517±0.030stat±0.022syst. We separately fit for the first parameter of the D'Ambrosio-Isidori-Portolés model and find αDIP=-1.729±0.043stat±0.028syst.
