Search for the decay Bs -> D*-+ π+-


LHCb Collaboration; et al; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkamp, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A (2013). Search for the decay Bs -> D*-+ π+-. Physical Review D (Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology), 87:071101(R).

Abstract

A search for the decay B0s→D*∓π± is presented using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0  fb−1 of pp collisions collected by LHCb. This decay is expected to be mediated by a W-exchange diagram, with little contribution from rescattering processes, and therefore a measurement of the branching fraction will help us to understand the mechanism behind related decays such as B0s→π+π− and B0s→DD¯¯¯. Systematic uncertainties are minimized by using B0→D*∓π± as a normalization channel. We find no evidence for a signal, and set an upper limit on the branching fraction of B(B0s→D*∓π±)<6.1(7.8)×10−6 at 90% (95%) confidence level.
