$D_1(2420)^0$ and $D_2^*(2460)$ decay angle distributions
Experiment: CLEO (CESR)
Inspire ID: 281039
Status: VALIDATED

Beams: e- e+
Beam energies: (5.2, 5.2) GeV
    No run details listed

Measurement of the $D_1(2420)^0$ and $D^*_2(2460)^0$ mesons at 10.5 GeV. The decay angle of the $D^{+*}$ with respect to the $D_1(2420)^0$ or $D^*_2(2460)^0$ direction in the rest frame of the parent hadron, is measured. This gives information on the spin of the parent.
