Title: Observation of D⁺→K⁺η(') and Search for CP Violation in D⁺→π⁺η(') Decays

Abstract

We report the first observation of the doubly Cabibbo-suppressed decays D⁺→K⁺η(') using a 791 fb⁻¹ data sample collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e⁺e⁻ collider. The ratio of the branching fractions of doubly Cabibbo-suppressed relative to singly Cabibbo-suppressed D⁺→π⁺η(') decays are B(K⁺η)/B(D⁺→π⁺η)=(3.06±0.43±0.14)% and B(K⁺η('))/B(D⁺→π⁺η(')) = (3.77±0.39±0.10)%. From these, we find that the relative final-state phase difference between the tree and annihilation amplitudes in D⁺ decays, δTA, is (72±9)° or (288±9)°. We also report the most precise measurements of CP asymmetries to date: AD⁺CP=(+1.74±1.13±0.19)% and AD⁺→π+η'CP = (-0.12±1.12±0.17)%.
