Observation of the decay B¯¯¯0s→ψ(2S)K+π−

Abstract : The decay B¯¯¯0s→ψ(2S)K+π− is observed using a data set corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0fb−1 collected by the LHCb experiment in pp collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The branching fraction relative to the B0→ψ(2S)K+π− decay mode is measured to be B(B¯¯¯0s→ψ(2S)K+π−)B(B0→ψ(2S)K+π−)=5.38±0.36(stat)±0.22(syst)±0.31(fs/fd)%, where fs/fd indicates the uncertainty due to the ratio of probabilities for a b quark to hadronise into a B0s or B0 meson. Using an amplitude analysis, the fraction of decays proceeding via an intermediate K∗(892)0 meson is measured to be 0.645±0.049(stat)±0.049(syst) and its longitudinal polarisation fraction is 0.524±0.056(stat)±0.029(syst). The relative branching fraction for this component is determined to be B(B¯¯¯0s→ψ(2S)K∗(892)0)B(B0→ψ(2S)K∗(892)0)=5.58±0.57(stat)±0.40(syst)±0.32(fs/fd)%. In addition, the mass splitting between the B0s and B0 mesons is measured as M(B0s)−M(B0)=87.45±0.44(stat)±0.07(syst)MeV/c2.
