# Two photon decay of neutral scalars below 1.5 GeV in a chiral model for bar{q}q and bar{q}bar{q}qq states

@article{Rodguez2004TwoPD, title={Two photon decay of neutral scalars below 1.5 GeV in a chiral model for bar\{q\}q and bar\{q\}bar\{q\}qq states}, author={Sim{\'o}n Rodŕıguez and Mauro Napsuciale}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2004} }

We study the two photon decay of neutral scalars below 1.5 GeV in the context of a recently proposed chiral model for bar{q}q and bar{q}bar{q}qq states. We find good agreement with experimental results for the a_{0}(980)->gamma gamma. Our calculations for f_{0}(980)->gamma gamma shows that further work is necessary in order to understand the structure of this meson. The model predicts Gamma(a_{0}(1450)->gamma gamma)=0.16+/-0.10KeV, Gamma(sigma->gamma gamma)=0.47+/-0.66 KeV, Gamma(f(1370)->gamma…
