Abstract

The properties of the orbitally excited (L=1) B0s states are studied by using 1.0  fb−1 of pp collisions at s√=7  TeV collected with the LHCb detector. The first observation of the B∗s2(5840)0 meson decaying to B*+K− is reported, and the corresponding branching fraction measured relative to the B+K− decay mode. The Bs1(5830)0→B*+K− decay is observed as well. The width of the B∗s2(5840)0 state is measured for the first time, and the masses of the two states are determined with the highest precision to date. The observation of the B∗s2(5840)0→B*+K− decay favors the spin-parity assignment JP=2+ for the B∗s2(5840)0 meson. In addition, the most precise measurement of the mass difference m(B*+)−m(B+)=45.01±0.30(stat)±0.23(syst)  MeV/c2 is obtained.

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.
