Abstract
© 2016, The Author(s). Abstract: This paper presents the measurement of the relative width difference ΔΓd/Γdof the B0‐ B¯0system using the data collected by the ATLAS experiment at the LHC in pp collisions at s=7 TeV and s=8 TeV and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 25.2 fb−1. The value of ΔΓd/Γdis obtained by comparing the decay-time distributions of B0→ J/ψKSand B0→ J/ψK*0(892) decays. The result is ΔΓd/Γd= (−0.1±1.1 (stat.)± 0.9 (syst.)) × 10−2. Currently, this is the most precise single measurement of ΔΓd/Γd. It agrees with the Standard Model prediction and the measurements by other experiments.[Figure not available: see fulltext.]
