|Abstract:||We report a search for a light CP-odd Higgs boson A0, which can|
be produced in U decays and decay to low mass dark matter, c. We
search for evidence of the on-shell process, U(1S) ! gA0,A0 ! cc,
and the off-shell process, U(1S) ! gcc, via the dipion transition
U(2S) ! U(1S)p+p. We present the first Belle search for final
states with a single photon and missing energy in the mass range
of MA0 < 9.0 GeV/c2 and Mc < 4.5 GeV/c2 with a data sample
of 157.3 106 U(2S) decays. We find no evidence for a signal
and set limits on branching fractions for such processes. We also
use the limit on the off-shell process to set competitive limits on
WIMP-nucleon scattering cross sections.
