Search for di-muon decays of a low-mass Higgs boson in radiative decays of the Y(1S)


We search for di-muon decays of a low-mass Higgs boson (A^0) produced in radiative Υ(1S) decays. The Υ(1S) sample is selected by tagging the pion pair in the Υ(2S,3S) → π^+ π^-Υ(1S) transitions, using a data sample of 92.8 × 10^6 Υ(2S) and 116.8 × 10^6 Υ(3S) events collected by the BABAR detector. We find no evidence for A^0 production and set 90% confidence level upper limits on the product branching fraction B(Υ(1S) → γA^0) × B(A^0 → μ^ +μ^-) in the range of (0.28-9.7) × 10^(-6) for 0.212 ≤ m_A^0 ≤ 9.20  GeV/c^2. The results are combined with our previous measurements of Υ(2S,3S) → γA^0, A^0 → μ^+μ^- to set limits on the effective coupling of the b quark to the A^0.
