Abstracts
During an energy scan at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring, with use of the Columbia University-Stony Brook NaI detector, an enhancement in (e+ e hadrons) is observed at center-of-mass energy ~ 10.55 GeV. The mass and leptonic width of this state (''') suggest that it is the 43S1 bound state of the b quark and its antiquark. After applying to the data a cut in a (pseudo) thrust variable, the natural width is measured to be = 12.6 6.0 MeV, indicating that the ''' is above threshold for B production.
