Title: Observation of the Decay B c + B s 0 π +

Abstract

The result of a search for the decay B c + B s 0 π + is presented, using the B s 0 D s - π + and B s 0 J/ψφ channels. The analysis is based on a data sample of pp collisions collected with the LHCb detector, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1 fb -1 taken at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, and 2 fb -1 taken at 8 TeV. The decay B c + B s 0 π + is observed with significance in excess of 5 standard deviations independently in both decay channels. The measured product of the ratio of cross sections and branching fraction is [σ (B c + )/σ (B s 0 )] × B ( B c + B s 0 π + ) =[2.37±0.31 (stat) ± 0.11 (syst)$$ +0.17\atop{-0.13} $$(τ$$_B{_c^+}$$)]×10 -3, in the pseudorapidity range 2<η(B)<5, where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic, and the third is due to the uncertainty on the $$B{_c^+}$$ lifetime. This is the first observation of a B meson decaying to another B meson via the weak interaction.

abstractNote = {The result of a search for the decay Bc+→Bs0π+ is presented, using the Bs0→Ds-π+ and Bs0→ J/ψφ channels. The analysis is based on a data sample of pp collisions collected with the LHCb detector, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1 fb-1 taken at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, and 2 fb-1 taken at 8 TeV. The decay Bc+→Bs0π+ is observed with significance in excess of 5 standard deviations independently in both decay channels. The measured product of the ratio of cross sections and branching fraction is [σ(Bc+)/σ(Bs0)]× B (Bc+→Bs0π+) =[2.37±0.31 (stat) ± 0.11 (syst)$ +0.17\atop{-0.13} $(τ$_B{_c^+}$)]×10-3, in the pseudorapidity range 2<η(B)<5, where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic, and the third is due to the uncertainty on the $B{_c^+}$ lifetime. This is the first observation of a B meson decaying to another B meson via the weak interaction.},
