Abstract
The processes \(e^+e^-\rightarrow\eta\gamma, \pi^0\gamma\rightarrow
3\gamma \protect\) were studied in the SND experiment at the VEPP-2M collider in the energy region of the \(\phi\protect\)meson. The branching ratios obtained in this study are \(
\mathrm{Br}(\phi \rightarrow \eta \gamma)=(1.338\pm 0.012\pm
0.052)\%\protect \) and \( \mathrm{Br}(\phi \rightarrow
\pi
^{0}\gamma )=(1.226\pm 0.036_{-0.089}^{+0.096})\times
10^{-3}\protect \). A comparison of the experimental data with different theoretical models was performed.
