Abstract

Using the ARGUS detector at the DORIS II storage ring we have investigated the Lorentz structure of the electroweak interaction in semi-hadronic τ decays. Spin correlations in the process e+e- → τ+τ- → vτπ+ π0 vτπ-π0 are exploited for a measurement of the normalized product of the vector (gV) and axial vector (gA) couplings of the τ lepton, γinAV = 2 Re{gAgV*} (|gV|2). The correlations are sensitive to the product of the couplings in both τ decays: γAV2 = γAV- → ντW-) AV = -h(vτ)h(vτ). The measured value, γAV2 = 1.044±0.057±0.060, determines the relative sign of the neutrino helicities. Assuming CP invariance, the absolute value |γAV| = 1.022±0.028±0.030 was found to be incellent agreement with the Standard Model. The contribution of scalar (gs) or pseudoscalar (gP) couplings was also investigated. No evidence for a scalar-like coupling was found.
