Abstract

A key ingredient to searches for physics beyond the Standard Model in Bs-0 mixing phenomena is the measurement of the B s-0 oscillation frequency, which is equivalent to the mass difference Δms of the Bs-0 mass eigenstates. Using the world's largest Bs-0 meson sample accumulated in a dataset, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb-1, collected by the LHCb experiment at the CERN LHC in 2011, a measurement of Δms is presented. A total of about 34 000 B s-0 → Dsπ-+ signal decays are reconstructed, with an average decay time resolution of 44 fs. The oscillation frequency is measured to be Δms = 17.768 ± 0.023 (stat) ± 0.006 (syst) ps-1, which is the most precise measurement to date. © CERN 2013 for the benefit of the LHCb Collaboration, published under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 licence by IOP Publishing Ltd and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft.
