Observation of B0→ψ(2S)KS0π+π- and Bs0→ψ(2S)KS0 decays


Using a data sample of s=13TeV proton-proton collisions collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC in 2017 and 2018 with an integrated luminosity of 103fb-1 , the Bs0→ψ(2S)KS0 and B0→ψ(2S)KS0π+π- decays are observed with significances exceeding 5 standard deviations. The resulting branching fraction ratios, measured for the first time, correspond to B(Bs0→ψ(2S)KS0)/B(B0→ψ(2S)KS0)=(3.33±0.69(stat)±0.11(syst)±0.34(fs/fd))×10-2 and B(B0→ψ(2S)KS0π+π-)/B(B0→ψ(2S)KS0)=0.480±0.013(stat)±0.032(syst) , where the last uncertainty in the first ratio is related to the uncertainty in the ratio of production cross sections of Bs0 and B0 mesons, fs/fd .
