Amplitude analysis of $B^+ \to J/\psi\phi K^+$ decays


LHCb Collaboration; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Serra, N; Steinkamp, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A; et al (2017). Amplitude analysis of $B^+ \to J/\psi\phi K^+$ decays. Physical review. D, D95(1):012002.

Abstract

The first full amplitude analysis of $B^+ \to J/\psi\phi K^+$ with $J/\psi \to \mu^+\mu^−, \phi \to K^+ K^−$ decays is performed with a data sample of 3  $fb^{−1}$ of $pp$ collision data collected at $\sqrt{s}=7$ and 8 TeV with the LHCb detector. The data cannot be described by a model that contains only excited kaon states decaying into $\phi K^+$, and four $J/\psi\phi$ structures are observed, each with significance over 5 standard deviations. The quantum numbers of these structures are determined with significance of at least 4 standard deviations. The lightest has mass consistent with, but width much larger than, previous measurements of the claimed X(4140) state. The model includes significant contributions from a number of expected kaon excitations, including the first observation of the $K^∗(1680)^+ \to \phi K^+$ transition.
