First observation and measurement of the branching fraction for the decay B0s→D∗∓sK±

Abstract : The first observation of the B0s→D∗∓sK± decay is reported using 3.0fb−1 of proton-proton collision data collected by the LHCb experiment. The D∗∓s mesons are reconstructed through the decay chain D∗∓s→γD∓s(K∓K±π∓). The branching fraction relative to that for B0s→D∗−sπ+ is measured to be 0.068±0.005+0.003−0.002, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic. Using a recent measurement of BR(B0s→D∗−sπ+) the absolute branching fraction of B0s→D∗∓sK± is measured as ( 16.3 ± 1.2 (stat) +0.7−0.5 (syst) ± 4.8 (norm) ) × 10−5, where the third uncertainty is due to the uncertainty on the branching fraction of the normalisation channel.
