Measurement of the B−c meson lifetime in the decay B−c→J/ψ π−


CDF Collaboration; et al; Canelli, F; Kilminster, B (2013). Measurement of the B−c meson lifetime in the decay B−c→J/ψ π−. Physical Review D (Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology), 87(1):011101.

Abstract

The lifetime of the B−c meson is measured using 272 exclusive B−c→J/ψ(→μ+μ−)π− decays reconstructed in data from proton-antiproton collisions corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 6.7  fb−1 recorded by the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. The lifetime of the B−c meson is measured to be τ(B−c)=0.452±0.048(stat)±0.027(syst)  ps. This is the first measurement of the B−c meson lifetime in a fully reconstructed hadronic channel, and it agrees with previous results and has comparable precision.

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.
