We report on a two-flavor lattice QCD study of the axial, charge and matter distributions of the $B$ meson and its first radial excitation. As our framework is the static limit of Heavy Quark Effective Theory (HQET), taking their Fourier transform gives access to several form factors at the kinematical point $q^2=0$. Moreover they provide some useful information on the nature of an excited state, i.e. a radial excitation of a quark-antiquark bound state or a multihadron state. 

Good and bad diquark properties and spatial correlations in lattice QCD

We study good, bad and not-even-bad diquarks on the lattice in a gauge-invariant formalism in full QCD. We establish their spectral masses with short extrapolations to the physical point, observing

Unexpected pattern of transitions to radial excitations by heavy quark current

Motivated by the claimed possibility of a large contribution of the first radial excitation of the $D^{(\ast )}$ to the $B$ semileptonic decay into charmed mesons, also invoked to solve the "$1/2$

Diquark properties from full QCD lattice simulations

We study diquarks on the lattice in the background of a static quark, in a gauge-invariant formalism with quark masses down to almost physical mπ. We determine mass differences between diquark
