Observation of a Neutral Charmoniumlike State Zc (4025)0 in e+e- → (D∗ D ¯ ∗)0π0
© 2015 us. © 2015 American Physical Society. American Physical Society. We report a study of the process e+e-→(D∗D¯∗)0π0 using e+e- collision data samples with integrated luminosities of 1092 pb-1 at s=4.23 GeV and 826 pb-1 at s=4.26 GeV collected with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII storage ring. We observe a new neutral structure near the (D∗D¯∗)0 mass threshold in the π0 recoil mass spectrum, which we denote as Zc(4025)0. Assuming a Breit-Wigner line shape, its pole mass and pole width are determined to be (4025.5-4.7+2.0±3.1) MeV/c2 and (23.0±6.0±1.0) MeV, respectively. The Born cross sections of e+e-→Zc(4025)0π0→(D∗D¯∗)0π0 are measured to be (61.6±8.2±9.0) pb at s=4.23 GeV and (43.4±8.0±5.4) pb at s=4.26 GeV. The first uncertainties are statistical and the second are systematic.
