Measuring the Photon Polarization in B → Kππγ

  title={Measuring the Photon Polarization in B → Kππγ},
  author={Michael Gronau and Yuval Grossman Y. Grossman},
We propose a way of measuring the photon polarization in radiative B decays into K resonance states decaying to Kππ, which can test the Standard Model and probe new physics. The photon polarization is shown to be measured by the up-down asymmetry of the photon direction relative to the Kππ decay plane in the K resonance rest frame. The integrated asymmetry in K1(1400) → Kππ, calculated to be 0.25, is measurable at currently operating B factories. Present Address: Stanford Linear Accelerator… CONTINUE READING
