Measurements of direct CP -violating asymmetries in charmless decays of bottom baryons


CDF Collaboration; Canelli, F; Kilminster, B; et al (2014). Measurements of direct CP -violating asymmetries in charmless decays of bottom baryons. Physical Review Letters, 113(242001):online.

Abstract

We report final measurements of direct $\mathit{CP}$--violating asymmetries in charmless decays of neutral bottom hadrons to pairs of charged hadrons with the upgraded Collider Detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. Using the complete $\sqrt{s}=1.96$ TeV proton-antiproton collisions data set, corresponding to 9.3 fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity, we measure $\mathcal{A}(\Lambda^0_b \rightarrow p\pi^{-}) = +0.06 \pm 0.07\mathrm{(stat)} \pm 0.03\mathrm{(syst)}$ and $\mathcal{A}(\Lambda^0_b \rightarrow pK^{-}) = -0.10 \pm 0.08\mathrm{(stat)} \pm 0.04\mathrm{(syst)}$, compatible with no asymmetry. In addition we measure the $\mathit{CP}$--violating asymmetries in $B^0_s \rightarrow K^{-}\pi^{+}$ and $B^0 \rightarrow K^{+}\pi^{-}$ decays to be $\mathcal{A}(B^0_s \rightarrow K^{-}\pi^{+}) = +0.22 \pm 0.07\mathrm{stat)} \pm 0.02\mathrm{(syst)}$ and $\mathcal{A}(B^0 \rightarrow K^{+}\pi^{-}) = -0.083\pm 0.013 \mathrm{(stat)} \pm 0.004\mathrm{(syst)}$, respectively, which are significantly different from zero and consistent with current world averages.
