Abstract

The KLOE detector is operational since spring '99 at DAPhiNE, the Frascati e(+)e(-) collider, a phi-factory running at 1.02 GeVc.m. energy. This detector has been designed and built with the primary goal of measuring Re(epsilon'/epsilon), the CP violation parameter in the kaon system, with a sensitivity of about one part in ten thousands. Apart from CP studies in the kaon system. KLOE has a rich scientific program that can be exploited with an integrated luminosity not far from the one which has already been collected, namely the study of phi decays into scalar and pseudoscalar mesons, the measurement of the hadronic cross-section up to I GeV rare kaon decays, phi decays into three pions. Since the detector installation there have been three periods of stable data taking and a total amount of similar to200 pb(-1) has been collected by end of 2001, corresponding to similar to6.7 . 10(8) phi mesons and to -8.7 . 10(6) eta mesons., being BR(phi --> etagamma) = (1.297 +/- 0.033) . 10(-2). We present the results obtained, for a data sample of 17 pb(-1) collected in the year 2000, for phi --> etagamma and phi --> eta'gamma: the ratio of these two BR's has been measured to be (5.3 +/- 0.5 +/- 0.4) . 10(-3), leading to a very accurate determination of the mixing angle in the flavor basis phi(p) = (40(-1.5)(+1.7))degrees and to the most accurate determination of BR(phi --> eta'gamma) to date: (6.8 +/- 0.6 +/- 0.5) . 10(-5). From the ratio BR(phi --> etagamma)/BR(phi --> pi(0)gamma) we have extracted the value BR(phi --> pi(0)y) = (1.377 +/- 0.007 +/- 0.05) . 10(-3).
