First measurement of the CP-violating phase in B0s→φφ decays


LHCb Collaboration; et al; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkamp, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A (2013). First measurement of the CP-violating phase in B0s→φφ decays. Physical Review Letters, 110(24):241802.

Abstract

A first flavor-tagged measurement of the time-dependent CP-violating asymmetry in B0s→ϕϕ decays is presented. In this decay channel, the CP-violating weak phase arises due to CP violation in the interference between B0s-B¯¯¯0s mixing and the b→ss¯s gluonic penguin decay amplitude. Using a sample of pp collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0  fb−1 and collected at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV with the LHCb detector, 880 B0s→ϕϕ signal decays are obtained. The CP-violating phase is measured to be in the interval [−2.46,−0.76]  rad at a 68% confidence level. The p value of the standard model prediction is 16%.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
