First study of the CP-violating phase and decay-width difference in $B_s^0\to\psi(2S)\phi$ decays


LHCb Collaboration; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkamp, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A (2016). First study of the CP-violating phase and decay-width difference in $B_s^0\to\psi(2S)\phi$ decays. Physics Letters B, 762:253-262.

Abstract

A time-dependent angular analysis of $B_s^0\to\psi(2S)\phi$ decays is performed using data recorded by the LHCb experiment. The data set corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 3.0\invfb collected during Run 1 of the LHC. The CP-violating phase and decay-width difference of the $B_s^0$ system are measured to be $\phi_s = 0.23^{+0.29}_{-0.28} \pm 0.02$ rad and $\Delta\Gamma_s = 0.066^{+0.041}_{-0.044} \pm 0.007$ ps$^{-1}$, respectively, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic. This is the first time that $\phi_s$ and $\Delta\Gamma_s$ have been measured in a decay containing the $\psi(2S)$ resonance.
