Lifetime differences, direct CP violation, and partial widths in D 0 meson decays to K + K - and + - Academic Article uri icon


  • We describe several measurements using the decays D 0 K + K - and + - . We find the ratio of partial widths, (D 0 K + K - )/ (D 0 + - ), to be 2.960.160.15, where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic. We observe no evidence for direct CP violation, obtaining A CP (KK)=( and A CP ()=( In the limit of no CP violation we measure the mixing parameter y CP =-0.0120.0250.014 by measuring the lifetime difference between D 0 K + K - or + - and the CP neutral state, D 0 K - + . We see no evidence for mixing.
