Abstract

We present a measurement of the decay amplitudes in B --> J/psiK*(892) channels using 20.7 fb(-1) of data collected at the Y(4S) resonance with the BABAR detector at PEP-H. We measure a P-wave fraction R-perpendicular to = (16.0 +/- 3.2 +/- 1.4)% and a longitudinal polarization fraction (59.7 +/- 2.8 +/- 2.4)%. The measurement of a relative phase that is neither 0 nor pi, phi (parallel to) = 2.50 +/- 0.20 +/- 0.08 radians, favors a departure from the factorization hypothesis. Although the decay B --> J/psiK pi proceeds mainly via K*(892), there is also evidence for K-2*(1430) and K pi S-wave contributions.
