Abstract
We report on a study of exclusive radiative decays of the Y(1S) resonance c ollected with the CLEO II detector operating at the Cornell Electron Storag e Ring. We present the first observation of the radiative decays Y(1S) --> gamma pi(+)pi(-) and Y(1S) --> gamma pi(0)pi(0). For the dipion mass regime m(pi pi) > 1.0 GeV, we obtain N(Y(1S) --> gamma pi(+)pi(-)) = (6.3 +/- 1.2 +/- 1.3) x 10(-5) and B(Y(1S) --> gamma pi(0)pi(0)) = (1.7 +/- 0.6 +/- 0.3 ) x 10(-5).
