Measurement of τL using the Bs0→J/ψη decay mode

LHCb Collaboration

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Using a proton–proton collision data sample collected by the LHCb detector and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.7fb-1 , the lifetime of the light Bs0 mass eigenstate, τL , is measured using the Bs0→J/ψη decay mode to be τL=1.445±0.016(stat)±0.008(syst)ps. A combination of this result with a previous LHCb analysis using an independent dataset corresponding to 3 fb - 1 of integrated luminosity gives τL=1.452±0.014±0.007±0.002ps, where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second due to the uncorrelated part of the systematic uncertainty and the third due to the correlated part of the systematic uncertainty.
