Mesonic Molecules

Prof. Mitja Rosina

Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, University of Ljubljana & J. Stefan Institute, Ljubljana

We expect a deeper understanding of the effective quark-quark interaction from the study of two-meson molecules (tetraquarks). So far, a number of such resonances have been found. Particularly interesting is the molecule made of two D mesons where the two charm quarks c play a role similar to the two protons in the hydrogen molecule, and the two light antiquarks u-bar and d-bar a role of electrons (the "Chromodynamic covalent bond"). It may be found in the future upgraded accelerator SuperKEKB with the detector Belle2 in Tsukuba (Japan).
