The effective lifetime of the B̅ s0 meson in the decay mode B̅ s0→J/ψf0(980) is measured using 1.0  fb-1 of data collected in pp collisions at √s=7  TeV with the LHCb detector. The result is 1.700±0.040±0.026  ps, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic. As the final state is CP-odd, and CP violation in this mode is measured to be small, the lifetime measurement can be translated into a measurement of the decay width of the heavy B̅ s0 mass eigenstate, ΓH=0.588±0.014±0.009  ps-1.

Abstract

The effective lifetime of the B̅ s0 meson in the decay mode B̅ s0→J/ψf0(980) is measured using 1.0  fb-1 of data collected in pp collisions at √s=7  TeV with the LHCb detector. The result is 1.700±0.040±0.026  ps, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic. As the final state is CP-odd, and CP violation in this mode is measured to be small, the lifetime measurement can be translated into a measurement of the decay width of the heavy B̅ s0 mass eigenstate, ΓH=0.588±0.014±0.009  ps-1.
