Observation of D0-D0bar oscillations


LHCb Collaboration; et al; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkamp, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A (2013). Observation of D0-D0bar oscillations. Physical Review Letters, 110(10):101802.

Abstract

We report a measurement of the time-dependent ratio of D0→K+π− to D0→K−π+ decay rates in D*+-tagged events using 1.0  fb−1 of integrated luminosity recorded by the LHCb experiment. We measure the mixing parameters x'2=(−0.9±1.3)×10−4, y′=(7.2±2.4)×10−3, and the ratio of doubly-Cabibbo-suppressed to Cabibbo-favored decay rates RD=(3.52±0.15)×10−3, where the uncertainties include statistical and systematic sources. The result excludes the no-mixing hypothesis with a probability corresponding to 9.1 standard deviations and represents the first observation of D0−D¯¯¯0 oscillations from a single measurement.

We measure the mixing parameters x'2=(−0.9±1.3)×10−4, y′=(7.2±2.4)×10−3, and the ratio of doubly-Cabibbo-suppressed to Cabibbo-favored decay rates RD=(3.52±0.15)×10−3, where the uncertainties include statistical and systematic sources. The result excludes the no-mixing hypothesis with a probability corresponding to 9.1 standard deviations and represents the first observation of D0−D¯¯¯0 oscillations from a single measurement.

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.
