Abstract

Using data samples collected with the BESIII detector operating at the BEPCII collider at 17 center-of-mass energies from 3.810 to 4.600 GeV, we perform a study of e+e-→ηJ/ψ and π0J/ψ. The Born cross sections of these two processes are measured at each center-of-mass energy. The measured energy-dependent Born cross section for e+e-→ηJ/ψ shows an enhancement around 4.2 GeV. The measurement is compatible with an earlier measurement by Belle.
