Precise measurement of the $W$-boson mass with the Collider Detector at Fermilab


CDF Collaboration; Canelli, F; Kilminster, B; et al (2014). Precise measurement of the $W$-boson mass with the Collider Detector at Fermilab. Physical Review D (Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology), 89:072003.

Abstract

We present a measurement of the $W$-boson mass, $M_W$, using data corresponding to 2.2/fb of integrated luminosity collected in ppbar collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 1.96 TeV with the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. The selected sample of 470126 $W\to e\nu$ candidates and 624708 $W\to\mu\nu$ candidates yields the measurement $M_W = 80387\pm 12$ (stat) $\pm 15$ (syst)$ = 80387 \pm 19$ MeV$/c^2$ . This is the most precise single measurement of the $W$-boson mass to date.
