The decay width of the meson is dominated by the electromagnetic mode , and it is thus the longest-lived charged vector meson. In light of this point, we perform the first QCD LCSRs calculation of helicity form factors and discuss the experiment potential of discovering exclusive weak decays. The main result is the partial decay widths, which read as , , and . We show that these channels are promising in the near future, serving as the first experimental observation of weak decays of a vector meson, and would open up a new playground for precision test of the standard model.
