First observation of B0 → D∗+ Xμ−ν decays


LHCb Collaboration; Bernet, R; Bursche, A; Büchler-Germann, A; Chiapolini, N; De Cian, M; Serra, N; Steiner, S; Steinkamp, O; Straumann, U; Tobin, M; Van Tillburg, J; Vollhardt, A (2011). First observation of B0 → D∗+ Xμ−ν decays. Physics Letters B, 698 (1):14-20.

Abstract

Using data collected with the LHCb detector in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, the semileptonic decays Bs -> Ds+ X mu nu and Bs -> D0 K+ X mu nu are detected. Two structures are observed in the D0 K+ mass spectrum at masses consistent with the known D^+_{s1}(2536) and $D^{*+}_{s2}(2573) mesons. The measured branching fractions relative to the total Bs semileptonic rate are B(Bs -> D_{s2}^{*+} X mu nu)/B(Bs -> X mu nu)= (3.3\pm 1.0\pm 0.4)%, and B(Bs -> D_{s1}^+ X munu)/B(Bs -> X mu nu)= (5.4\pm 1.2\pm 0.5)%, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic. This is the first observation of the D_{s2}^{*+} state in Bs decays; we also measure its mass and width.
