### Search for η-meson production in γγ interactions with e+e- colliding beams at √s = 1 GeV

e+ e- η e+ e- process

Integrated luminosity L= 240 pb-1

η π+π–π0

BR(hp+p-p0)=22.73%

N. expected events = L σ (e+ e- η e+ e-) BR (η π+π–π0) ε

e+e- → p+p-p0

SND

e+e- hg, h p+p- g (4.6%)

e+e- hg, h e+e- g (0.68%)

e+e- hg,h 3p0, with gN e+e-N

e+e- gg, with gN e+e-N

don’t survive the analysis cuts

The measured cross section s(K+K-) has a very large error.

We prefer to evaluate it using the formula

EPA

The MC generator used accounts for non negligible high pT values for e+e- and so for the h, that is different from EPA predictions

Analysis criteria

Event selection

- at least 2 neutral prompt clusters with Eclu> 15 MeV
- 100 MeV < Σ Eγ < 900 MeV
- Eγ1 > 50 MeV

- Only 2 neutral prompt clusters
- Xγγ pairing < 8
- Cut on Xη
- “Electron likelihood” cut
- Cuts to reduce “pathological” background:
- “Split track” cut
- Eγ1< 225 MeV
- sinθγ1> 0.462
- a > 30°

- Kinematic cut

- TRIGGER, FILFO
- γγ filter (see KLOE Memo n.346), in detail:
- 2 tracks with opposite charge from a cylinder with ρPCA < 8 cm, |zPCA|< 8 cm, ρfirst-hit < 50 cm

Xγγ pairing:

Xη:

Kinematic fit using Lagrange multipliers method

- 10 g variables
- constraints

X2η distribution for data, MC signal and MC ηγ

Very good agreement between official ALLRAD and private e+e- e+e- eta MC productions

Pairing with the monochromatic g!

Eg1< 225 MeV and ch2<~20 to further reduce this contribution

Energy of the most energetic photon (MeV) vs X2η for MC ηγ before and after the requirement npro=2

Event display

|p(π+)|-|p(π-)| (MeV) vs θπ+π- (deg)

- Large values of the angle between the two tracks
- Opposite values of the momenta

Correlation between the tracks opening angle and the distance between the first hit of the positive track and the first hit of the negative track for data (top) and for signal simulated events (bottom)

The cut applied is indicated by the straight line

+ a > 30° to further reduce background due to g N e+e-N

data

- Eγ1< 225 MeV
- 27.5° < θγ1< 152.5°

Mmiss2 distributions

BR(hp+p-p0)=22.73%

e1 (no pT cut) = 0.209 ± 0.003

e2 (pT cut) = 0.196 ± 0.003

Systematics

- Output s(hg) value always 15% lower than expected value
- Spread among results from different ch2 cuts ~ 11%
- For a fixed ch2 cut, the difference between pL and Mmiss2 fits ~ 2%
- With or without pT<100 MeV cut, related to the generated pT distribution for MC signal ~ 3%

s(e+e- e+e-h, s=1 GeV) = (50±2stat±9syst) pb

- ggh events have been observed in the same mass range of interest for other studies (see ggp0p0)
- The cross section e+e-e+e-hp+p-p0e+e- has been measured and found consistent with the EPA prediction even at small √s value compared with existing literatures
