Title: Evidence for a $$B_s^0 \pi^\pm$$ state

Abstract

Here, we report evidence for a narrow structure, X(5568), in the decay sequence X(5568)→$$B_s^0 \pi^\pm$$, B$$_s^0$$ →J/ψΦ, J/ψ→μ+μ-, Φ→K+K-. This is evidence for the first instance of a hadronic state with valence quarks of four different flavors. The mass and natural width of this state are measured to be m=5567.8±2.9(stat) $$+0.9\atop{-1.9}$$ (syst) MeV/c 2 and Γ=21.9±6.4(stat)$$+5.0\atop{-2.5}$$ (syst) MeV/c 2. If the decay is X(5568)→B$$*\atop{s}$$ π ±→B$$0\atop{s}$$ γπ ± with an unseen γ, m(X(5568)) will be shifted up by m(B$$*\atop{s}$$ )-m(B$$0\atop{s}$$)~49 MeV/c 2. This measurement is based on 10.4 fb -1 of $$p\bar{p}$$ collision data at $$\sqrt{s}$$ =1.96 TeV collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron collider.

  • A three-dimensional close coupling quantum mechanicscalculation is performed for hydrogen ion-molecule collisions.The results are compared to those obtained from the trajectorysurface hopping method. (AIP)
  • Deuteron-gamma angular correlation measurements and their analysis indicate significant effects of the deuteron D state on the spin-statistical tensors of the 2.58-MeV (7/2/sup -/) state in /sup 57/Ni excited in the reaction /sup 58/Ni(p,d)/sup 57/Ni at an incident energy of 30 MeV.
  • We study the relationship between the symmetry of the pairing state and the NMR measurements in the superconducting state of YBa[sub 2]Cu[sub 3]O[sub 7]. We find that among various pairing states including [ital s]-wave, [ital d]-wave, and [ital s]+[ital id] states, only the [ital s]+[ital id] state is in qualitative agreement with [ital both] the Knight shift [ital and] 1/[ital T][sub 1] measurements. This conclusion is further supported by the agreement between the calculated result using the [ital s]+[ital id] state and the experimental data on the ratio of the nuclear relaxation rates of Cu(2) and O(2,3) nuclei which cannotmore » be fit by either [ital s]-wave or [ital d]-wave states.« less
  • High-resolution intracavity dye laser spectroscopy has been used to obtain sub-Doppler spectra of transitions to 350 rotational levels in the 4[sup 1][sub 0] band of the [ital [tilde A]] [sup 1][ital A][sub 2]--[ital [tilde X]] [sup 1][ital A][sub 1] electronic transition of thioformaldehyde. Ground state combination differences from the sub-Doppler spectra, combined with microwave and infrared data, have been used to improve the ground state rotational and centrifugal distortion constants of H[sub 2]CS. The upper state shows a remarkable number of perturbations. The largest of these are caused by nearby triplet levels, with matrix elements of 0.05--0.15 cm[sup [minus]1]. Amore » particularly clear singlet--triplet avoided crossing in [ital K][sub [ital a]][sup [prime]] = 7 has been shown to be caused by interaction with the [ital F][sub 1] component of the 3[sup 1]6[sup 2] vibrational level of the [ital [tilde a]] [sup 3][ital A][sub 2] state. At least 53% of the [ital S][sub 1] levels show evidence of very small perturbations by high rovibronic levels of the ground state. The number of such perturbations is small at low [ital J], but increases rapidly beyond [ital J]=5 such that 40%--80% of the observed [ital S][sub 1] levels of any given [ital J] are perturbed by ground state levels. Model calculations show that the density and [ital J] dependence of the number of perturbed levels can be explained if there is extensive rotation-induced mixing of the vibrational levels in the ground state.« less
  • State-resolved detection techniques have been used to characterize the ultraviolet photodecomposition dynamics of Mo(CO)[sub 6] on Si(111) 7[times]7 at 100 K. Details of the excitation/fragmentation mechanism including adsorbate energy transfer were examined by measuring the cross sections and the internal and translational energies of the photoejected CO from submonolayer through multilayer coverage regimes. The CO energy distributions are found to be independent of Mo(CO)[sub 6] coverage, and can be characterized by two components with markedly different mean energies. In contrast to the coverage independence of the measured energy disposal, the cross section was found to decrease by a factor ofmore » 3 from multilayer coverages to submonolayer coverages.« less
