The lepton-flavor violating process J/ψ→ll′(l≠l′) serves as an ideal place to probe the unparticle theory. Such a process can only occur at loop level in the Standard model (SM), so that should be very suppressed; by contrast, in the unparticle scenario, it happens at tree level and its contribution may be sizable for practical measurement. Moreover, the BESIII will offer the largest database on J/ψ, which makes more accurate measurements possible. Furthermore, for such purely leptonic decays the background is relatively low and the signal would be cleaner. Our work carefully investigates the possibility of observing such processes from both theoretical and experimental aspects.
