Abstract

The decay width and mass of the D-s1(2536)(+) meson are measured via the decay channel D-s1(+) -> (D*+KS0) using 385 fb(-1) of data recorded with the BABAR detector in the vicinity of the Gamma(4S) resonance at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy electron-positron collider. The result for the decay width is Gamma(D-s1(+)) = 92 +/- 0.03(stat.) +/- 0.04(syst.) MeV. For the mass, a value of m(D-s1(+)) = 2535.08 +/- 0.01(stat.) +/- 0.15(syst.) MeV/c(2) is obtained. The mass difference between the D-s1(+) and the D*+ is measured to be m(D-s1(+)) - m(D*+) = 524.83 +/- 0.01(stat.) +/- 0.04(syst.) MeV/c(2), representing a significant improvement compared to the current world average. The unnatural spin-parity assignment for the D-s1(+) meson is confirmed.
