Title: Measurement of the H Λ 3 lifetime in Au+Au collisions at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider [Measurement of the H Λ 3 lifetime in Au+Au collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider]

Abstract

Here, an improved measurement of the 3ΛH lifetime is presented. In this paper, the mesonic decay modes 3ΛH → 3He + π and 3ΛH → d + p + π are used to reconstruct the 3ΛH from Au+Au collision data collected by the STAR collaboration at Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). A minimum χ2 estimation is used to determine the lifetime of τ = 142+24–21 (stat.) ± 29 (syst.) ps. This lifetime is about 50% shorter than the lifetime τ = 263 ± 2 ps of a free Λ, indicating strong hyperon-nucleon interaction in the hypernucleus system. The branching ratios of the mesonic decay channels are also determined to satisfy B.R.(3He+π)/(B.R.(3He+π) + B.R.(d+p+π)) = 0.32 ± 0.05 (stat.) ± 0.08 (syst.). Our ratio result favors the assignment J(3ΛH) = 1/2 over J(3ΛH) = 3/2. These measurements will help to constrain models of hyperon-baryon interactions.

abstractNote = {Here, an improved measurement of the 3ΛH lifetime is presented. In this paper, the mesonic decay modes 3ΛH → 3He + π– and 3ΛH → d + p + π– are used to reconstruct the 3ΛH from Au+Au collision data collected by the STAR collaboration at Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). A minimum χ2 estimation is used to determine the lifetime of τ = 142+24–21 (stat.) ± 29 (syst.) ps. This lifetime is about 50% shorter than the lifetime τ = 263 ± 2 ps of a free Λ, indicating strong hyperon-nucleon interaction in the hypernucleus system. The branching ratios of the mesonic decay channels are also determined to satisfy B.R.(3He+π–)/(B.R.(3He+π–) + B.R.(d+p+π–)) = 0.32 ± 0.05 (stat.) ± 0.08 (syst.). Our ratio result favors the assignment J(3ΛH) = 1/2 over J(3ΛH) = 3/2. These measurements will help to constrain models of hyperon-baryon interactions.},
