Structure at 2175 MeV in e+e-→ f0(980) observed via initial-state radiation
We study the initial-state-radiation processes e+e-→K+K-π+π- γ and e+e-→K+K-π0π0γ using an integrated luminosity of 232fb-1 collected at the Υ(4S) mass with the BABAR detector at SLAC. Even though these reactions are dominated by intermediate states with excited kaons, we are able to study for the first time the cross section for e+e-→ (1020)f0(980) as a function of center-of-mass energy. We observe a structure near threshold consistent with a 1 - resonance with mass m=2.175±0. 010±0.015GeV/c2 and width Γ=58±16±20MeV. We observe no Y(4260) signal and set a limit of BY→ π+π-•ΓeeY<0. 4eV (90% confidence level), which excludes some models. © 2006 The American Physical Society.
