On the linearity of the MINOS light-injection calibration system

The MINOS light-injection calibration system has been fully documented in a previous article (Nucl. Instr. and Meth. A 492 (2002) 353). Upon commissioning in the MINOS detectors, the system was found to give a non-linear response to variations in the intensity of injected light. The source of this non-linearity has been traced to a small change in the spectrum of the injected light as a function of the current applied to the original blue LEDs, in combination with a rapidly varying spectral response function of the wavelength-shifting fibre used in the detector. Both aspects of the problem have been addressed successfully by use of LEDs with different spectral characteristics, and the system now has a linear response. © 2003 Elsevier B.V.

We present a new measurement of the branching ratio R of the decay K L → pi; ± e ∓ ν, denoted as K e3 , relative to all charged KL decays with two tracks, based on data taken with the NA48 detector at the CERN SPS. We measure R=0.4978±0. 0035. From this we derive the Ke3 branching fraction and the weak coupling parameter |V us | in the CKM matrix. We obtain |V us |f+(0)=0. 2146±0.0016, where f+(0) is the vector form factor in the K e3 decay. © 2004 Published by Elsevier B.V.

We present a detailed examination of the heavy flavor properties of jets produced at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. The data set, collected with the Collider Detector at Fermilab, consists of events with two or more jets with transverse energy E T ≥15 GeV and pseudorapidity |η|≤1.5. The heavy flavor content of the data set is enriched by requiring that at least one of the jets (lepton-jet) contains a lepton with a transverse momentum larger than 8 GeV/c. Jets containing hadrons with heavy flavor are selected via the identification of secondary vertices. The parton-level cross sections predicted by the HERWIG Monte Carlo generator program are tuned within theoretical and experimental uncertainties to reproduce the secondary-vertex rates in the data. The tuned simulation provides new information on the origin of the discrepancy between the bb̄ cross section measurements at the Tevatron and the next-to-leading order QCD prediction. We also compare the rate of away-jets (jets recoiling against the lepton-jet) containing a soft lepton (p T ≥2 GeV/c) in the data to that in the tuned simulation. We find that this rate is larger than what is expected for the conventional production and semileptonic decay of pairs of hadrons with heavy flavor. © 2004 The American Physical Society.

We have measured the number of like-sign (LS) and opposite-sign (OS) lepton pairs arising from double semileptonic decays of b and [Formula Presented] hadrons, pair produced at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. The data samples were collected with the Collider Detector at Fermilab during the 1992–1995 collider run by triggering on the existence of [Formula Presented] or [Formula Presented] candidates in an event. The observed ratio of LS to OS dileptons leads to a measurement of the average time-integrated mixing probability of all produced b-flavored hadrons which decay weakly, [Formula Presented] that is significantly larger than the world average [Formula Presented] © 2004 The American Physical Society.

The observation of a state consistent with X(3872) decaying into J/ψπ+π- was reported. The X(3872) mass was measured to be 3871.3±0.7(stat)±0.4(syst)MeV/c2 from a sample of 730±90 candidates. The observed width was consistent with the detector resolution. The results were found to be converging well with the measurements by the Belle Collaboration using b± decays.

For comparison of inclusive jet cross sections measured at hadron-hadron colliders to next-to-leading order (NLO) parton-level calculations, the energy deposited in the jet cone by spectator parton interactions must first be subtracted. The assumption made at the Tevatron is that the spectator parton interaction energy is similar to the ambient level measured in minimum bias events. In this paper, we test this assumption by measuring the ambient charged track momentum in events containing large transverse energy jets at √s = 1800 GeV and √s = 630 GeV and comparing this ambient momentum with that observed both in minimum bias events and with that predicted by two Monte Carlo models. Two cones in η-φ space are defined, at the same pseudorapidity, η, as the jet with the highest transverse energy (E<inf>T</inf> <sup>(1)</sup>), and at ±90° in the azimuthal direction, φ. The total charged track momentum inside each of the two cones is measured. The minimum momentum in the two cones is almost independent of E<inf>T</inf> <sup>(1)</sup> and is similar to the momentum observed in minimum bias events, whereas the maximum momentum increases roughly linearly with the jet E <inf>T</inf><sup>(1)</sup> over most of the measured range. This study was carried out using data from the CDF detector taken during Run 1 (1994-1995). The study will help improve the precision of comparisons of jet cross section data and NLO perturbative QCD predictions. The distribution of the sum of the track momenta in the two cones is also examined for five different E<inf>T</inf> <sup>(1)</sup> bins. The HERWIG and PYTHIA Monte Carlo generators are reasonably successful in describing the data, but neither can describe completely all of the event properties.

The results based on 1992-95 data (Run 1) from the CDF and D0 experiments on the measurements of the W boson mass and width are presented, along with the combined results. We report a Tevatron collider average M W = 80.456 ± 0.059 GeV. We also report the Tevatron collider average of the directly measured W boson width T W = 2.115 ± 0.105 GeV. We describe a new joint analysis of the direct W mass and width measurements. Assuming the validity of the standard model, we combine the directly measured W boson width with the width extracted from the ratio of W and Z boson leptonic partial cross sections. This combined result for the Tevatron is T W = 2.135 ± 0.050 GeV. Finally, we use the measurements of the direct total W width and the leptonic branching ratio to extract the leptonic partial width Γ(W → eν) = 224 ± 13 MeV.

The photoproduction of bottom quarks in events with two jets and a muon has been measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 110 pb -1 . The fraction of jets containing b quarks was extracted from the transverse momentum distribution of the muon relative to the closest jet. Differential cross sections for bottom production as a function of the transverse momentum and pseudorapidity of the muon, of the associated jet and of x γjets , the fraction of the photon's momentum participating in the hard process, are compared with MC models and QCD predictions made at next-to-leading order. The latter give a good description of the data.

In data taken with the NA48 experiment at the CERN SPS in 1999, 730 candidates of the weak radiative hyperon decay Ξ 0 →Λγ have been found with an estimated background of 58±8 events. From these events the Ξ 0 →Λγ decay asymmetry has been determined to α(Ξ 0 →Λγ)=-0.78±0.18 stat ±0.06 syst , which is the first evidence of a decay asymmetry in Ξ 0 →Λγ. The branching fraction of the decay has been measured to be Br(Ξ 0 →Λγ)=(1.16±0.05 stat ±0.06 syst )×10 -3 . © 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
