First evidence for the annihilation decay mode $B^{+} \to D_{s}^{+} \phi$. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2013(2):43.

Abstract

Evidence for the hadronic annihilation decay mode B+→D+sϕ is found with greater than 3σ significance. The branching fraction and CP asymmetry are measured to be B(B+→D+sϕ)=(1.87+1.25−0.73(stat)±0.19(syst)±0.32(norm))×10−6,ACP(B+→D+sϕ)=−0.01±0.41(stat)±0.03(syst).
The last uncertainty on B(B+→D+sϕ) is from the branching fractions of the B+→D+sD¯¯¯0 normalization mode and intermediate resonance decays. Upper limits are also set for the branching fractions of the related decay modes B+(c)→D+(s)K∗0,B+(c)→D+(s)K¯¯¯∗0 and B+c→D+sϕ , including the result B(B+→D+K∗0)<1.8×10−6 at the 90% credibility level.
