Abstract

The Dalitz decays η→e+e-γ and ω→π0e+e- have been measured in the γp→ηp and γp→ωp reactions, respectively, with the A2 tagged-photon facility at the Mainz Microtron. The value obtained for the slope parameter of the electromagnetic transition form factor of η, Λη-2=(1.97±0.11tot)GeV-2, is in good agreement with previous measurements of the η→e+e-γ and η→μ+μ-γ decays. The uncertainty obtained in the value of Λη-2 is lower than in previous results based on the η→e+e-γ decay. The value obtained for the ω slope parameter, Λωπ0-2=(1.99±0.21tot)GeV-2, is somewhat lower than previous measurements based on ω→π0μ+μ-, but the results for the ω transition form factor are in better agreement with theoretical calculations, compared to earlier experiments.
