Abstract

We report a study of the process gamma gamma -> X -> eta(c)pi(+)pi(-) , where X stands for one of the resonances chi(c2)(1P), eta(c)(2S), X(3872), X(3915), or chi(c2)(2P). The analysis is performed with a data sample of 473.9 fb(-1) collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy electron-positron collider. We do not observe a significant signal for any channel, and calculate 90% confidence-level upper limits on the products of branching fractions and two-photon widths Gamma B-x ->gamma gamma(X -> eta(c)pi(+) pi(-)): 15.7 eV for chi(c2)(1P), 133 eV for eta(c)(2S), 11.1 eV for X(3872) (assuming it to be a spin-2 state), 16 eV for X(3915) (assuming it to be a spin-2 state), and 18 eV for chi(c2)(2P). We also report upprt limits on the rations of branching fractions B(eta(c)(2S) -> eta(c)pi(+) pi(-))/B(eta(c)(2S) -> (KSK+)-K-0 pi(-)) < 10.0 and B(chi(c2)(1P) -> eta(c)pi(+) pi(-))/B(chi(c2)(1P) -> (KSK+)-K-0 pi(-)) < 32.9 at the 90% confidence level.
