We report a measurement of the process γγ* → π0 with a 759 fb-1 data sample recorded with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e+e- collider. The pion transition form factor, F(Q2), is measured for the kinematical region GeV2 ≲ Q2 ≲ 40 GeV2, where −Q2 is the invariant mass squared of a virtual photon. The measured values of Q2|F(Q2)| agree well with the previous measurements below Q2 ≃ 9 GeV2 but do not exhibit the rapid growth in the higher Q2 region seen in another recent measurement, which exceeds the asymptotic QCD expectation by as much as 50%.
