    Model-independent Study on Magnetic Dipole Transition in Heavy Quarkonium

    Full text link
    Some new results on magnetic dipole (M1) transitions in heavy quarkonium from nonrelativistic effective field theories of QCD are briefly reported. This model-independent approach not only facilitates a systematic and lucid way to investigate the relativistic corrections, it also clarifies some inconsistent treatment in previous potential model approach. The impact of our formalism on J/Psi -> eta_c gamma, Upsilon(Upsilon') -> eta_b gamma and h_c -> chi_{c0} gamma are discussed.Comment: 7 pages and 3 figures.

    Inclusive hch_c production at BB factories

    Full text link
    Within the nonrelativistic QCD (NRQCD) factorization framework, we investigate the inclusive production of the hch_c meson associated with either light hadrons or charmed hadrons at BB factory energy s=10.58\sqrt{s}=10.58 GeV. Both the leading color-singlet and color-octet channels are included. For the hch_c production associated with light hadrons, the total production rate is dominated by the color-octet channel, thus the future measurement of this process may impose useful constraint on the value of the color-octet matrix element ; for the hch_c production associated with charmed hadrons, the total production rate is about one order of magnitude smaller, and dominated by the color-singlet channel.Comment: v2, 23 pages, 1 table, 6 figures.

    Which hadronic decay modes are good for ηb\eta_b searching: double J/ψJ/\psi or something else?

    It has been controversial whether ηb\eta_b can be discovered in Tevatron Run 2 through the decay ηbJ/ψJ/ψ\eta_b\to J/\psi J/\psi followed by J/ψμ+μJ/\psi\to \mu^+\mu^-. We clear this controversy by an explicit calculation which predicts Br[ηbJ/ψJ/ψ]{\rm Br}[\eta_b\to J/\psi J/\psi] to be of order 10810^{-8}. It is concluded that observing eta_b through this decay mode in Tevatron Run 2 is rather unrealistic. The eta_b may be observed in the forthcoming LHC experiments through the 4-lepton channel, if the background events can be significantly reduced by imposing some kinematical cuts. By some rough but plausible considerations, we find that the analogous decay processes eta_b to VV, D^*\bar{D}^* also have very suppressed branching ratios, nevertheless it may be worth looking for \eta_b at LHC and Super B factory through the decay modes \eta_b \to K_S K^{\pm}\pi^{\mp}, D^*\bar{D}.Comment: v2; 28 pages, 2 figures.
