Abstract

We report a study of the processes e^+e^-→ηγ and e^+e^-→η′γ at a center-of-mass energy of 10.58 GeV, using a 232  fb^(-1) data sample collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II collider at SLAC. We observe 20_(-5)^(+6)ηγ and 50_(-7)^(+8)η′γ events over small backgrounds, and measure the cross sections σ(e^+e^-→ηγ)=4.5_(-1.1)^(+1.2)±0.3  fb and σ(e^+e^-→η′γ)=5.4±0.8±0.3  fb. The corresponding transition form factors at q^2=112  GeV^2 are q^2|F_η(q^2)|=0.229±0.030±0.008  GeV, and q^2|F_η′(q^2)|=0.251±0.019±0.008  GeV, respectively.
