We present branching fraction measurements for the radiative decays B+-> rho(+)gamma, B-0 -> rho(0)gamma, and B-0 -> omega gamma.

We also measure the isospin-violating quantity Gamma(B+ -> rho(+)gamma)/2 Gamma(B-0 -> rho(0)gamma) - 1 = -0.43 (+0.25)(-0.22) +/- 0.10.

Abstract

We present branching fraction measurements for the radiative decays B+-> rho(+)gamma, B-0 -> rho(0)gamma, and B-0 -> omega gamma. The analysis is based on a data sample of 465 X 10(6) B (B) over bar events collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B Factory located at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. We find B(B+ -> rho(+)gamma) = (1.20(-0.37)(+0.42) +/- 0.20) X 10(-6), B(B-0 -> rho(0)gamma) = (0.97(-0.22)(+0.24) +/- 0.06) X 10(-6), and a 90% C.L. upper limit B(B-0 -> omega gamma) < 0.9 X 10(-6), where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic. We also measure the isospin-violating quantity Gamma(B+ -> rho(+)gamma)/2 Gamma(B-0 -> rho(0)gamma) - 1 = -0.43 (+0.25)(-0.22) +/- 0.10.
