Measurement of the $B_c^+$ meson lifetime using $B_c^+ \to J\!/\!\psi\mu^+ \nu_{\mu} X$ decays


LHCb Collaboration; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkamp, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A; et al (2014). Measurement of the $B_c^+$ meson lifetime using $B_c^+ \to J\!/\!\psi\mu^+ \nu_{\mu} X$ decays. European Physical Journal C - Particles and Fields, 74:2839.

Abstract

The lifetime of the $B_c^+$ meson is measured using semileptonic decays having a $J\!/\!\psi$ meson and a muon in the final state. The data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $2\mathrm{~fb^{-1}}$, are collected by the LHCb detector in $pp$ collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of $8\,\mathrm{TeV}$. The measured lifetime is $$\tau = 509 \pm 8 \pm 12 \mathrm{~fs},$$ where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic.
