Measurement of Bs0Ds(*)+Ds(*)- branching ratios. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The decays Bs0Ds(*)+Ds(*)- are reconstructed in a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 6.8fb-1 collected by the CDF II detector at the Tevatron pp[over ] collider. All decay modes are observed with a significance of more than 10, and we measure the Bs0 production rate times Bs0Ds(*)+Ds(*)- branching ratios relative to the normalization mode B0Ds+D-to be 0.1830.0210.017 for Bs0Ds+Ds-, 0.4240.0460.035 for Bs0Ds*Ds^, 0.6540.0720.065 for Bs0Ds*+Ds*-, and 1.2610.0950.112 for the inclusive decay Bs0Ds(*)+Ds(*)-, where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic. These results are the most precise single measurements to date and provide important constraints for indirect searches for nonstandard model physics in Bs0 mixing.
