Measurement of CP asymmetries and polarisation fractions in B0s→K∗0K¯∗0 decays

Abstract : An angular analysis of the decay B0s→K∗0K¯∗0 is performed using pp collisions corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb−1 collected by the LHCb experiment at a centre-of-mass energy s√=7 TeV. A combined angular and mass analysis separates six helicity amplitudes and allows the measurement of the longitudinal polarisation fraction fL=0.201±0.057(stat.)±0.040(syst.) for the B0s→K∗(892)0K¯∗(892)0 decay. A large scalar contribution from the K∗0(1430) and K∗0(800) resonances is found, allowing the determination of additional CP asymmetries. Triple product and direct CP asymmetries are determined to be compatible with the Standard Model expectations. The branching fraction B(B0s→K∗(892)0K¯∗(892)0) is measured to be (10.6±1.8(stat.)±1.0(syst.)±0.6(fd/fs))×10−6.
