Observation of B0s→D¯0K0S and evidence for B0s→D¯∗0K0S decays

Abstract : The first observation of the B0s→D¯0K0S decay mode and evidence for the B0s→D¯∗0K0S decay mode are reported. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb−1 collected in pp collisions by LHCb at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The branching fractions are measured to be B(B0s→D¯0K¯0)B(B0s→D¯∗0K¯0)=(4.3±0.5(stat)±0.3(syst)±0.3(frag)±0.6(norm))×10−4,=(2.8±1.0(stat)±0.3(syst)±0.2(frag)±0.4(norm))×10−4, where the uncertainties are due to contributions coming from statistical precision, systematic effects, and the precision of two external inputs, the ratio fs/fd and the branching fraction of B0→D¯0K0S, which is used as a calibration channel.
