Measurement of the ratio B(B0 → J/ψ f0(980))/B(B0 → J/ψ φ(1020)) in pp collisions ss at s=7TeV


CMS Collaboration; et al; Canelli, F; Chiochia, V; Kilminster, B; Robmann, P (2016). Measurement of the ratio B(B0 → J/ψ f0(980))/B(B0 → J/ψ φ(1020)) in pp collisions ss at s=7TeV. Physics Letters B, 756:84-102.

Abstract

A measurement of the ratio of the branching fractions of the Bs0 meson to J/ψf0(980) and to J/ψϕ(1020) is presented. The J/ψ , f0(980) , and ϕ(1020) are observed through their decays to μ+μ− , π+π− , and K+K− , respectively. The f0 and the ϕ are identified by requiring |Mπ+π−−974 MeV|<50 MeV and |MK+K−−1020 MeV|<10 MeV . The analysis is based on a data sample of pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.3 fb −1 . The measured ratio is B(Bs0→J/ψf0)B(f0→π+π−)B(Bs0→J/ψϕ)B(ϕ→K+K−)=0.140±0.008(stat)±0.023(syst) , where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic.
