We calculate the next-to-next-to-leading-order (NNLO) perturbative corrections to?P-wave quarkonia annihilation decay to two photons, in the framework of nonrelativistic QCD (NRQCD) factorization. The order-α2s?short-distance coefficients associated with each helicity amplitude are presented in a semi-analytic form, including the "light-by-light" contributions. With substantial NNLO corrections, we find disquieting discrepancy when confronting our state-of-the-art predictions with the latest \textsf{BESIII} measurements, especially fail to account for the measured?χc2→γγwidth. Incorporating the effects of spin-dependent forces would even exacerbate the situation, since it lifts the degeneracy between the nonperturbative NRQCD matrix elements of?χc0?and?χc2?toward the wrong direction. We also present the order-α2s?predictions to?χb0,2→γγ, which await the future experimental test.

Can NRQCD Explain the $\gamma\gamma^* \to \eta_c$ Transition Form Factor Data?

Unlike the bewildering situation in the?γγ?→π?form factor, a widespread view is that perturbative QCD can decently account for the recent \textsc{BaBar} measurement of?γγ?→ηc?transition form factor. The next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) perturbative correction to the?γγ?→ηc,b?form factor, is investigated in the NRQCD factorization framework for the first time. As a byproduct, we obtain by far the most precise order-α2s?NRQCD matching coefficient for the?ηc,b→γγ?process. After including the substantial negative order-α2s?correction, the good agreement between NRQCD prediction and the measured?γγ?→ηc?form factor is completely ruined over a wide range of momentum transfer squared. This eminent discrepancy casts some doubts on the applicability of NRQCD approach to hard exclusive reactions involving charmonium.
