Abstract:

The mean life-time of the pio meson is measured by the method of Harris, Orear and Taylor. The decay distance of pio-mesons produced by K sub pi 2-decay at rest Kyields pi pi0 and subsequent decay by the Dalitz mode pi0 yields e e- gamma is measured. Using Ilford G-5 emulsions, exposed in the 300 MeVc separated K beam from the Bevatron at Berkeley, 88 of the above events were found. The observed mean pi0 life-time is 2.80.9.1016S. Author
