A measurement of the semileptonic branching fraction of the B_s Meson


BABAR Collaboration; Snoek, H (2012). A measurement of the semileptonic branching fraction of the B_s Meson. Physical Review D (Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology), 85(1):011101.

Abstract

We report a measurement of the inclusive semileptonic branching fraction of the Bs meson using data collected with the BABAR detector in the center-of-mass energy region above the Υ(4S) resonance. We use the inclusive yield of ϕ mesons and the ϕ yield in association with a high-momentum lepton to perform a simultaneous measurement of the semileptonic branching fraction and the production rate of Bs mesons relative to all B mesons as a function of center-of-mass energy. The inclusive semileptonic branching fraction of the Bs meson is determined to be B(Bs→ℓνX)=9.5-2.0+2.5(stat)-1.9+1.1(syst)%, where ℓ indicates the average of e and μ.
