Observation of $B^0_s\to\bar{D}^0 K^0_S$ and evidence for $B^0_s\to\bar{D}^{*0} K^0_S$ decays


LHCb Collaboration; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkampf, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A; et al (2016). Observation of $B^0_s\to\bar{D}^0 K^0_S$ and evidence for $B^0_s\to\bar{D}^{*0} K^0_S$ decays. Physical Review Letters, 116:161802.

Abstract

The first observation of the $B^0_s\to\bar{D}^0 K^0_S$ decay mode and evidence for the $B^0_s\to\bar{D}^{*0} K^0_S$ decay mode are reported. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 $\text{fb}^{-1}$ collected in $pp$ collisions by LHCb at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The branching fractions are measured to be \begin{align*} \mathcal{B}(B^0_s\to\bar{D}^0 \bar{K}^0) &= (4.3\pm0.5(\text{stat})\pm0.3(\text{syst})\pm0.3(\text{frag})\pm0.6(\text{norm}))\times10^{-4},\\ \mathcal{B}(B^0_s\to\bar{D}^{*0} \bar{K}^0) &=(2.8\pm1.0(\text{stat})\pm0.3(\text{syst})\pm0.2(\text{frag})\pm0.4(\text{norm}))\times10^{-4}, \end{align*} where the uncertainties are due to contributions coming from statistical precision, systematic effects, and the precision of two external inputs, the ratio $f_s/f_d$ and the branching fraction of $B^0\to\bar{D}^0 K^0_S$, which is used as a calibration channel.
