Abstract

A search is presented for the decay (1S)→γA0, A0→cc¯, where A0 is a candidate for the CP-odd Higgs boson of the next-to-minimal supersymmetric standard model. The search is based on data collected with the BABAR detector at the (2S) resonance. A sample of (1S) mesons is selected via the decay (2S)→π+π-(1S). The A0→cc¯ decay is identified through the reconstruction of hadronic D0, D+, and D∗(2010)+ meson decays. No significant signal is observed. The measured 90% confidence-level upper limits on the product branching fraction B((1S)→γA0)×B(A0→cc¯) range from 7.4×10-5 to 2.4×10-3 for A0 masses from 4.00 to 8.95GeV/c2 and 9.10 to 9.25GeV/c2, where the region between 8.95 and 9.10GeV/c2 is excluded because of background from (2S)→γχbJ(1P), χbJ(1P)→γ(1S) decays.
