Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new technique is applied to data collected at the (3770) resonance to derive charmed-D-meson branching fractions without relying on the measurement of D-production cross sections. Measurements are presented for three decay modes of the D0 (K-+, D - ++, and K-+0 and four decay modes of the D(K-++,K-++0,KS0+, and KS0+0). The resulting branching fractions are significantly larger than previous measurements.
