Using a sample of 88.8×106 BB̄ events collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II storage rings at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, we measure the branching fractions of seven color-suppressed B-meson decays: β(B̄0→D0π0) = [2.9±0.2(stat)±0.3(syst)]× 10-4, β(B̄0→D*0π0) = [2.9±0.4(stat)±0.5(syst)] × 10-4, β(B̄0→D0η) = [2.5±0.2(stat) ±0.3(syst)]×10-4, β(B̄0→D *0η = [2.6±0.4(stat)δ0.4(syst)] ×10 -4, β(B̄0→D0ω) = [3.0±0.3(stat)±0.4(syst)]× 10-4, β(B̄0→D*0ω) = [4.2±0.7(stat)±0.9(syst)] ×10-4, and β(B̄→D0η′) = [ 1.7±0.4(stat) ±0.2(syst)]× 10-4. We set the 90% confidence-level upper limit: β(B̄0→D*0η′)<2. 6×10-4. The channels B̄→D*0η, D*0ω, and D0η′ are seen with more than five-sigma statistical significance.

Abstract

Using a sample of 88.8x10(6) B (B) over bar events collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II storage rings at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, we measure the branching fractions of seven color-suppressed B-meson decays: B((b) over bar (0)-->D(0)pi(0))=[2.9+/-0.2(stat)+/-0.3(syst)]x10(-4), B((B) over bar (0)-->D(*0)pi(0))=[2.9+/-0.4(stat)+/-0.5(syst)]x10(-4), B((B) over bar (0)-->D(0)eta)=[2.5+/-0.2(stat)+/-0.3(syst)]x10(-4), <(B)over bar>(0)-->D(*0)eta)=[2.6+/-0.4(stat)+/-0.4(syst)]x10(-4), B((B) over bar (0)-->D(0)omega)=[3.0+/-0.3(stat)+/-0.4(syst)]x10(-4), B((B) over bar (0)-->D(*0)omega)=[4.2+/-0.7(stat)+/-0.9(syst)]x10(-4), and B((B) over bar (0)-->D(0)eta('))=[1.7+/-0.4(stat)+/-0.2(syst)]x10(-4). We set the 90% confidence-level upper limit: B((B) over bar (0)-->D(*0)eta('))<2.6x10(-4). The channels (B) over bar (0)-->D(*0)eta, D(*0)omega, and D(0)eta(') are seen with more than five-sigma statistical significance. All of these branching fractions are significantly larger than theoretical expectations based on the "naive" factorization model.
