Precision measurement of the B0s-B¯0s oscillation frequency with the decay B0s → D−sπ+


LHCb Collaboration; et al; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkamp, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A (2013). Precision measurement of the B0s-B¯0s oscillation frequency with the decay B0s → D−sπ+. New Journal of Physics, 15:053021.

Abstract

A key ingredient to searches for physics beyond the Standard Model in B0s mixing phenomena is the measurement of the B0s– ${{\overline{ {\mathrm {B}}}{}}^0_{\mathrm { s}}}$ oscillation frequency, which is equivalent to the mass difference Δms of the B0s mass eigenstates. Using the world's largest B0s meson sample accumulated in a dataset, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb−1, collected by the LHCb experiment at the CERN LHC in 2011, a measurement of Δms is presented. A total of about 34 000 B0s → D−sπ+ signal decays are reconstructed, with an average decay time resolution of 44 fs. The oscillation frequency is measured to be Δms = 17.768 ± 0.023 (stat) ± 0.006 (syst) ps−1, which is the most precise measurement to date.
