Measurement of the ratio of branching fractions $\mathcal{B}(B_{c}^{+} \to J/\psi K^{+})/\mathcal{B}(B_{c}^{+} \to J/\psi\pi^{+})$


LHCb Collaboration; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkampf, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A; et al (2016). Measurement of the ratio of branching fractions $\mathcal{B}(B_{c}^{+} \to J/\psi K^{+})/\mathcal{B}(B_{c}^{+} \to J/\psi\pi^{+})$. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2016(9):153.

Abstract

The ratio of branching fractions $R_{K/\pi} \equiv \mathcal{B}(B_{c}^{+} \to J/\psi K^{+})/\mathcal{B}(B_{c}^{+} \to J/\psi\pi^{+})$ is measured with $pp$ collision data collected by the LHCb experiment at centre-of-mass energies of 7 TeV and 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3${\mbox{fb}^{-1}}$. It is found to be $ R_{K/\pi} = 0.079\pm0.007\pm0.003$, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic. This measurement is consistent with the previous LHCb result, while the uncertainties are significantly reduced.
