Title: Search for Penguin Decays of $B$ Mesons at CDF

Abstract

Using a data sample of integrated luminosity $$\int$$ Ldt = 28.9 $$\pm$$ 1.2 $$pb^{-1}$$ of proton antiproton collisions at a center-of-mass energy $$\sqrt{s}$$ = 1.8 TeV collected with the CDF detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider, we searched for "penguin" radiative decays of $$B^0_d$$ and $$B^0_s$$ mesons which involve the flavor-changing neutral-current transition of a $b$ quark into an $s$ quark with the emission of a photon, $$b \to s\gamma$$ . Speciffcally, we searched for the decays $$B^0_d \to K^{*0}$$, $$K^{*0} \to K^+ \pi^-$$ and $$B^0_s \to \phi\gamma, \phi \to K^+ K^-$$, as well as for the charge conjugate chains....
