D-meson lifetimes

Published

Journal Article

We present the final results on the D-meson liftime measurements obtained by the NA27 experiment. From a sample of 145 D0 D0 and 149 D± decays, we have measured τ(D0)=(4.6+0.6-0.5)×10-1 3 s, τ(D±)=(11.2+1.4-1.1)×1 0-13 s, with a ratio R= τ(D±) τ(D0)=2.4±0.4. © 1987.
