Measurement of [Formula presented] hadron lifetimes using [Formula presented] final states at CDF

Journal Article

The average bottom-hadron and individual (Formula presented), (Formula presented), and (Formula presented) meson lifetimes have been determined using decays with a (Formula presented) in the final state. The data sample consists of 110 pb(Formula presented) of (Formula presented) collisions at (Formula presented) TeV collected by the CDF detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider during 1992–1995. For the average lifetime of (Formula presented) hadrons decaying into (Formula presented)+X, we obtain (Formula presented) For the (Formula presented) and (Formula presented) meson lifetimes, we determine (Formula presented) (Formula presented) and (Formula presented) For the (Formula presented) meson lifetime, we find (Formula presented) ps. © 1998 The American Physical Society.
