Search for the Λb→Λη′ and Λb→Λη decays with the LHCb detector

Abstract : A search is performed for the as yet unobserved baryonic Λb→Λη′ and Λb→Λη decays with 3fb−1 of proton-proton collision data recorded by the LHCb experiment. The B0→K0Sη′ decay is used as a normalisation channel. No significant signal is observed for the Λb→Λη′ decay. An upper limit is found on the branching fraction of B(Λb→Λη′)<3.1×10−6} at 90\% confidence level. Evidence is seen for the presence of the Λb→Λη decay at the level of 3σ significance, with a branching fraction B(Λb→Λη)=(9.3+7.3−5.3)×10−6}.
