LHCb Collaboration; Anderson, J; Bernet, R; Bowen, E; Bursche, A; Chiapolini, N; Chrzaszcz, M; Dey, B; Elsasser, C; Graverini, E; Lionetto, F; Lowdon, P; Mauri, A; Müller, K; Serra, N; Steinkamp, O; Storaci, B; Straumann, U; Tresch, M; Vollhardt, A; et al (2015). Measurement of $CP$ asymmetries and polarisation fractions in $B_s^0 \rightarrow K^{*0}\bar{K}{}^{*0}$ decays. Journal of High Energy Physics, 7(2015):166.

Abstract

An angular analysis of the decay $B_s^0 \rightarrow K^{*0}\bar{K}{}^{*0}$ is performed using $pp$ collisions corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $1.0$ ${fb}^{-1}$ collected by the LHCb experiment at a centre-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s} = 7$ TeV. A combined angular and mass analysis separates six helicity amplitudes and allows the measurement of the longitudinal polarisation fraction $f_L = 0.201 \pm 0.057 {(stat.)} \pm 0.040{(syst.)}$ for the $B_s^0 \rightarrow K^*(892)^0 \bar{K}{}^*(892)^0$ decay. A large scalar contribution from the $K^{*}_{0}(1430)$ and $K^{*}_{0}(800)$ resonances is found, allowing the determination of additional $CP$ asymmetries. Triple product and direct $CP$ asymmetries are determined to be compatible with the Standard Model expectations. The branching fraction $\mathcal{B}(B_s^0 \rightarrow K^*(892)^0 \bar{K}{}^*(892)^0)$ is measured to be $(10.8 \pm 2.1 {\ \rm (stat.)} \pm 1.4 {\ \rm (syst.)} \pm 0.6 \ (f_d/f_s) ) \times 10^{-6}$.
