The algorithms provide essential inputs for measurements of quark-flavor mixing and charge-parity violation. We validate and evaluate the performance of the algorithms using hadronic "Image missing" decays with flavor-specific final states reconstructed in a data set corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 62.8 fb$$^{-1}$$, collected at the "Equation missing" resonance with the Belle II detector at the SuperKEKB collider. We measure the total effective tagging efficiency to be $$\begin{aligned} \varepsilon _\mathrm{eff} = \big (30.0 \pm 1.2(\text {stat}) \pm 0.4(\text {syst})\big )\% \end{aligned}$$for a category-based algorithm and $$\begin{aligned} \varepsilon _\mathrm{eff} = \big (28.8 \pm 1.2(\text {stat}) \pm 0.4(\text {syst})\big )\% \end{aligned}$$for a deep-learning-based algorithm., Apr. 2022, 82, 4, Scientific journal

Zhukova, We present a search for the decays of B-0 mesons into a final state containing a Lambda baryon and missing energy. These results are obtained from a 711 fb(-1) data sample that contains 772 x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs and was collected near the Upsilon(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e(+)e(-) collider. We use events in which one B meson is fully reconstructed in a hadronic decay mode and require the remainder of the event to consist of only a single A. No evidence for these decays is found, and we set 90% confidence level upper limits on the branching fractions in the range 2.1-3.8 x 10(-5). This measurement provides the world's most restrictive limits, with implications for baryogenesis and dark matter production., 04 Mar. 2022, 105, 5, Scientific journal

A significant $$ {\Lambda}_c^{+} $$→ pη′ signal is observed for the first time with a signal significance of 5.4σ. The relative branching fraction with respect to the normalization mode $$ {\Lambda}_c^{+} $$→ pKπ+ is measured to be$$ \frac{\mathcal{B}\left({\Lambda}_c^{+}\to p\eta^{\prime}\right)},{\mathcal{B}\left({\Lambda}_c^{+}\to {pK}^{-},{\pi}^{+}\right)}=\left(7.54\pm 1.32\pm 0.73\right)\times {10}^{-3}, $$ where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. Using the world-average value of $$ \mathcal{B}\left({\Lambda}_c^{+}\to {pK}^{-},{\pi}^{+}\right) $$ = (6.28 ± 0.32) × 10−2, we obtain$$ \mathcal{B}\left({\Lambda}_c^{+}\to p\eta^{\prime}\right)=\left(4.73\pm 0.82\pm 0.46\pm 0.24\right)\times {10}^{-4}, $$ where the uncertainties are statistical, systematic, and from $$ \mathcal{B}\left({\Lambda}_c^{+}\to {pK}^{-},{\pi}^{+}\right) $$, respectively., Mar. 2022, 2022, 3, Scientific journal

Zhukova, We search for a light Higgs boson (A(0)) decaying into a tau(+)tau(-) or mu(+)mu(-) pair in the radiative decays of Upsilon(1S). The production of Upsilon(1S) mesons is tagged by Upsilon(2S) -> pi(+)pi(-)Upsilon(1S) transitions, using 158 x 10(6) Upsilon(2S) events accumulated with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric energy electron-positron collider. No significant A(0) signals in the mass range from the tau(+)tau(-) or mu(+)mu(-) threshold to 9.2 GeV/c(2) are observed. We set the upper limits at 90% credibility level (C.L.) on the product branching fractions for Upsilon(1S) -> gamma A(0) and A(0) -> tau(+)tau(-) varying from 3.8 x 10(-6) to 1.5 x 10(-4). Our results represent an approximately twofold improvement on the current world best upper limits for the Upsilon(1S) -> gamma A(0) (tau(+)tau(-)) production. For A(0) -> mu(+) mu(-), the upper limits on the product branching fractions for Upsilon(1S) -> gamma A(0) and A(0) -> mu(+)mu(-) are at the same level as the world average limits, and vary from 3.1 x 10(-7) to 1.6 x 10(-5). The upper limits at 90% credibility level on the Yukawa coupling f((SIC)(1S)) and mixing angle sin theta(A0) are also given., 23 Feb. 2022, 128, 8, Scientific journal

Zhukova, Abstract We present a measurement of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa unitarity triangle angle ϕ3 (also known as γ) using a model-independent Dalitz plot analysis of B+ → D ($$ {K}_S^0 $$h+h)h+, where D is either a D0 or $$ \overline{D} $$0 meson and h is either a π or K. This is the first measurement that simultaneously uses Belle and Belle II data, combining samples corresponding to integrated luminosities of 711 fb−1 and 128 fb−1, respectively. All data were accumulated from energy-asymmetric e+e collisions at a centre-of-mass energy corresponding to the mass of the Υ(4S) resonance. We measure ϕ3 = (78.4 ± 11.4 ± 0.5 ± 1.0)°, where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second is the experimental systematic uncertainty and the third is from the uncertainties on external measurements of the D-decay strong-phase parameters., Feb. 2022, 2022, 2, Scientific journal

The ratio of branching fractions of (B) over bar (0) -> D+K- and (B) over bar (0) -> D+pi(-) is measured to be R-D = [8.19 +/- 0.20(stat) +/- 0.23(syst)] x 10(-2).

With 121.4 fb(-1) of data collected at the gamma(5S) resonance by the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e(+)e(-) collider, we obtain B(B-s -> DsX) = (60.2 +/- 5.8 +/- 2.3)%, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic., 11 Jan. 2022, 105, 1, Scientific journal

Taking the decay Xi c(0) -> Xi(-)pi(+) as the normalization mode, we measure the branching fraction ratio B(Xi(0)(c) -> Lambda K-S(0))=B(Xi(0)(c) -> Xi(-)pi(+)) = 0.229 + 0.008 + 0.012 with improved precision, and measure the branching fraction ratios B(Xi 0c -> Sigma K-0(S)0)=B(Xi(0)(c) -> Xi(-)pi(+)) = 0.038 + 0.006 + 0.004 and B(Xi(0)(c) -> Sigma K-+(-))=B(Xi(0)(c) -> Xi(-)pi(+)) = 0.123 + 0.007 + 0.010 for the first time. Taking into account the branching fraction of the normalization mode, the absolute branching fractions are determined to be B(Xi(0)(c) -> Lambda K-S(0)) = (3.27 + 0.11 + 0.17 + 0.73) x 10(-3), B(Xi(0)(c) -> Sigma K-0(S)0) = (0.54 + 0.09 + 0.06 +0.12) x 10(-3), and B(Xi(0)(c) -> Sigma K-+(-)) = (1.76 + 0.10 + 0.14 + 0.39) x 10(-3). The first and second uncer-tainties above are statistical and systematic, respectively, while the third ones arise from the uncertainty of the branching fraction of Xi(0)(c) -> Xi(-)pi(+)., 06 Jan. 2022, 105, 1, Scientific journal

Zhukova, We present the measurement of the first to fourth order moments of the four-momentum transfer squared, q(2), of inclusive B -> X(c)l(+)upsilon(l) decays using the full Belle dataset of 711 fb(-1) of integrated luminosity at the gamma(4S) resonance where l = e, mu. The determination of these moments and their systematic uncertainties open new pathways to determine the absolute value of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix element V (cb) using a reduced set of matrix elements of the heavy quark expansion. In order to identify and reconstruct the X-c system, we reconstruct one of the two B-mesons using machine learning techniques in fully hadronic decay modes. The moments are measured with progressively increasing threshold selections on q(2) starting with a lower value of 3.0 GeV2 in steps of 0.5 GeV2 up to a value of 10.0 GeV2. The measured moments are further unfolded, correcting for reconstruction and selection effects as well as QED final state radiation. We report the moments separately for electron and muon final states and observe no lepton flavor universality violating effects., 30 Dec. 2021, 104, 11, Scientific journal

With the availability of these measurements, new avenues for future shape-function modelindependent determinations of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix element vertical bar V-ub vertical bar, can be pursued to gain new insights in the existing tension with respect to exclusive determinations. The differential branching fractions are reported as a function of the lepton energy, the four-momentum-transfer squared, light-cone momenta, the hadronic mass, and the hadronic mass squared. They are obtained by subtracting the backgrounds from semileptonic B -> X(c)l(+)v(l), decays and other processes, and corrected for resolution and acceptance effects., 22 Dec. 2021, 127, 26, Scientific journal

The results, (tau)(D-0) = 410.5 +/- 1.1 (stat) +/- 0.8(syst) fs and tau(D-0) = 1030.4 +/- 4.7 (stat) +/- 3.1 (syst) fs, are the most precise to date and are consistent with previous determinations., 19 Nov. 2021, 127, 21, Scientific journal

Zhukova, A search for the flavor-changing neutral-current decay B^{+}→K^{+}νν[over ¯] is performed at the Belle II experiment at the SuperKEKB asymmetric energy electron-positron collider. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 63  fb^{-1} collected at the ϒ(4S) resonance and a sample of 9  fb^{-1} collected at an energy 60 MeV below the resonance. Because the measurable decay signature involves only a single charged kaon, a novel measurement approach is used that exploits not only the properties of the B^{+}→K^{+}νν[over ¯] decay, but also the inclusive properties of the other B meson in the ϒ(4S)→BB[over ¯] event, to suppress the background from other B meson decays and light-quark pair production. This inclusive tagging approach offers a higher signal efficiency compared to previous searches. No significant signal is observed. An upper limit on the branching fraction of B^{+}→K^{+}νν[over ¯] of 4.1×10^{-5} is set at the 90% confidence level., 27 Oct. 2021, 127, 18, 181802, 181802, Scientific journal, True

We obtain$$ {\displaystyle \begin{array},{c}\mathcal{B}\left({D}^0\to {\pi}^{+},{\pi}^{-}\eta \right)=\left[1.22\pm 0.02\left(\mathrm{stat}\right)\pm 0.02\left(\mathrm{syst}\right)\pm 0.03\left({\mathcal{B } }_{\mathrm{ref } }\right)\right]\times {10}^{-3},\\ {}\mathcal{B}\left({D}^0\to {K}^{+},{K}^{-}\eta \right)=\left[{1.80}_{-0.06}^{+0.07}\left(\mathrm{stat}\right)\pm 0.04\left(\mathrm{syst}\right)\pm 0.05\left({\mathcal{B } }_{\mathrm{ref } }\right)\right]\times {10}^{-4},\\ {}\mathcal{B}\left({D}^0\to \phi \eta \right)=\left[1.84\pm 0.09\left(\mathrm{stat}\right)\pm 0.06\left(\mathrm{syst}\right)\pm 0.05\left({\mathcal{B } }_{\mathrm{ref } }\right)\right]\times {10}^{-4},\end{array } } $$ where the third uncertainty ($$ \mathcal{B} $$ref) is from the uncertainty in the branching fraction of the reference mode D0 → Kπ+η. The color-suppressed decay D0 → ϕη is observed for the first time, with very high significance. The results for the CP asymmetries are$$ {\displaystyle \begin{array},{c},{A}_{CP}\left({D}^0\ {\pi}^{+},{\pi}^{-}\eta \right)=\left[0.9\pm 1.2\left(\mathrm{stat}\right)\pm 0.5\left(\mathrm{syst}\right)\right]\%,\\ {},{A}_{CP}\left({D}^0\to {K}^{+},{K}^{-}\eta \right)=\left[-1.4\pm 3.3\left(\mathrm{stat}\right)\pm 1.1\left(\mathrm{syst}\right)\right]\%,\\ {} ACP\ \left({D}^0\to \phi \eta \right)=\left[-1.9\pm 4.4\left(\mathrm{stat}\right)\pm 0.6\left(\mathrm{syst}\right)\right]\%.\end{array } } $$ The results for D0 → π+πη are a significant improvement over previous results. The branching fraction and ACP results for D0 → K+Kη, and the ACP result for D0 → ϕη, are the first such measurements. No evidence for CP violation is found in any of these decays., Sep. 2021, 2021, 9, Scientific journal

Zhang; V. Zhilich; V. Zhukova; V. Zhulanov, We present measurements of partial branching fractions of inclusive semileptonic B→Xuℓ+νℓ decays using the full Belle dataset of 711 fb-1 of integrated luminosity at the ϒ(4S) resonance and for ℓ=e, μ. Inclusive semileptonic B→Xuℓ+νℓ decays are Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa (CKM) suppressed and measurements are complicated by the large background from CKM favored B→Xcℓ+νℓ transitions, which have a similar signature. Using machine learning techniques, we reduce this and other backgrounds effectively, while retaining access to a large fraction of the B→Xuℓ+νℓ phase space and high signal efficiency. We measure partial branching fractions in three phase-space regions covering about 31% to 86% of the accessible B→Xuℓ+νℓ phase space. The most inclusive measurement corresponds to the phase space with lepton energies of EℓB>1 GeV, and we obtain ΔB(B→Xuℓ+νℓ)=(1.59±0.07±0.16)×10-3 from a two-dimensional fit of the hadronic mass spectrum and the four-momentum-transfer squared distribution, with the uncertainties denoting the statistical and systematic error. We find |Vub|=(4.10±0.09±0.22±0.15)×10-3 from an average of four calculations for the partial decay rate with the third uncertainty denoting the average theory error. This value is higher but compatible with the determination from exclusive semileptonic decays within 1.3 standard deviations. In addition, we report charmless inclusive partial branching fractions separately for B+ and B0 mesons as well as for electron and muon final states. No isospin breaking or lepton flavor universality violating effects are observed., 12 Jul. 2021, 104, 1, Scientific journal

The data were recorded at the I(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e+e- collider. For B+→φφK+, the branching fraction and CP-violation asymmetry measured below the ηc threshold (mφφ<2.85 GeV/c2) are [3.43-0.46+0.48(stat)±0.22(syst)]×10-6 and -0.02±0.11(stat)±0.01(syst), respectively. Similarly, the branching fraction obtained for B0→φφK0 below the ηc threshold is [3.02-0.66+0.75(stat)±0.20(syst)]×10-6. We also measure the CP-violation asymmetry for B+→φφK+ within the ηc region (mφφ[2.94,3.02] GeV/c2) to be +0.12±0.12(stat)±0.01(syst)., 29 Mar. 2021, 103, 5, Scientific journal

The analysis is performed on a data set corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 953 fb-1 collected by the Belle detector at the asymmetric-energy e+e- KEKB collider. The Dalitz plot is well described by a combination of the six resonant decay channels K̄∗(892)0η, K-a0(980)+, K-a2(1320)+, K̄∗(1410)0η, K∗(1680)-π+ and K2∗(1980)-π+, together with Kπ and Kη S-wave components. The decays K∗(1680)-→K-η and K2∗(1980)-→K-η are observed for the first time. We measure ratio of the branching fractions, B(D0→K-π+η)B(D0→K-π+)=0.500±0.002(stat)±0.020(syst)±0.003(BPDG). Using the Dalitz fit result, the ratio B(K∗(1680)→Kη)B(K∗(1680)→Kπ) is measured to be 0.11±0.02(stat)-0.04+0.06(syst)±0.04(BPDG); this is much lower than the theoretical expectations (≈1) made under the assumption that K∗(1680) is a pure 13D1 state. The product branching fraction B(D0→[K2∗(1980)-→K-η]π+)=(2.2-1.9+1.7)×10-4 is determined. In addition, the πη′ contribution to the a0(980)± resonance shape is confirmed with 10.1σ statistical significance using the three-channel Flatté model. We also measure B(D0→K̄∗(892)0η)=(1.41-0.12+0.13)%. This is consistent with, and more precise than, the current world average (1.02±0.30)%, deviates with a significance of more than 3σ from the theoretical predictions of (0.51-0.92)%., 06 Jul. 2020, 102, 1, Scientific journal

Two different fractional-energy definitions were used and compared to the conventional fractional-energy definition reported previously. The new variables aim at either identifying dihadron cross sections in terms of single-hadron fragmentation functions, or to provide a means of characterizing the transverse momentum created in the fragmentation process. The results were obtained applying the updated initial-state radiation correction used in other recent Belle publications on light-hadron production cross sections. In addition, production cross sections of single charged pions, kaons, and protons were also updated using this initial-state radiation correction. The cross sections are obtained from a 558 fb(-1) data sample collected at the Upsilon(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e(+)e(-) collider., 13 May 2020, 101, 9, Scientific journal

No significant signal is found. For the ηc2(1D) mass range between 3795 and 3845 MeV/c2, the branching-fraction upper limits are determined to be ℬ(B+→ ηc2(1D)K+) × ℬ(ηc2(1D) → hcγ) < 3.7 × 10−5, ℬ(B0→ ηc2(1D)K0) × ℬ(ηc2(1D) → hcγ) < 3.5 × 10−5, ℬ(B0→ ηc2(1D)π−K+) × ℬ(ηc2(1D) → hcγ) < 1.0 × 10−4, and ℬ(B+→ ηc2(1D)π+KS0) × ℬ(ηc2(1D) → hcγ) < 1.1 × 10−4 at 90% C.L.

Zhukova, Theories beyond the standard model often predict the existence of an additional neutral boson, the Z′.Using data collected by the Belle II experiment during 2018 at the SuperKEKB collider, we perform the first searches for the invisible decay of a Z′ in the process e⁺e⁻ → μ⁺μ⁻Z′ and of a lepton-flavor-violating Z′ in e⁺e⁻ →e±μ∓Z′. We do not find any excess of events and set 90% credibility level upper limits on the cross sections of these processes. We translate the former, in the framework of an Lμ − Lτ theory, into upper limits on the Z′ coupling constant at the level of 5 × 10⁻² − 1 for Mz′ ≤ 6 GeV/c²., 06 Apr. 2020, 124, 14, 141801, 141801, Scientific journal

The sensitivity to a large number of key observables can be improved by about an order of magnitude compared to the current measurements, and up to two orders in very clean search measurements. This increase in statistical precision arises not only due to the increased luminosity, but also from improved detector efficiency and precision for many channels. Many of the most interesting observables tend to have very small theoretical uncertainties that will therefore not limit the physics reach. This book has presented many new ideas for measurements, both to elucidate the nature of current anomalies seen in flavor, and to search for new phenomena in a plethora of observables that will become accessible with the Belle II dataset. The simulation used for the studiesinthis book was state ofthe artat the time, though weare learning a lot more about the experiment during the commissioning period. The detector is in operation, and working spectacularly well., 01 Dec. 2019, 2019, 12, Scientific journal

A search for the decays B+→hcK+ and B0→hcKS0 is performed. Evidence for the decay B+→hcK+ is found; its significance is 4.8σ. No evidence is found for B0→hcKS0. The branching fraction for B+→hcK+ is measured to be (3.7-0.9+1.0 -0.8+0.8)×10-5; the upper limit for the B0→hcKS0 branching fraction is 1.4×10-5 at 90% C.L. In addition, a study of the ppπ+π- invariant mass distribution in the channel B+→(ppπ+π-)K+ results in the first observation of the decay ηc(2S)→ppπ+π- with 12.1σ significance. The analysis is based on the 711 fb-1 data sample collected by the Belle detector at the asymmetric-energy e+e- collider KEKB at the (4S) resonance., 10 Jul. 2019, 100, 1, Scientific journal

T; Merola M; Miyabayashi K; Miyashita T. S; Miyata H; Mizuk R, We report measurements of sin 2 beta and cos 2 beta using a time-dependent Dalitz plot analysis of B-0 -> D((*))h(0) with D -> K-S(0)pi(+)pi(-) decays, where the light unflavored and neutral hadron h(0) is a pi(0),eta, or omega meson. The analysis uses a combination of the final data sets of the BABAR and Belle experiments containing 471 x 10(6) and 772 x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs collected at the gamma(4S) resonance at the asymmetric-energy B factories PEP-II at SLAC and KEKB at KEK, respectively. We measure sin 2 beta = 0.80 +/- 0.14(stat) +/- 0.06(syst) +/- 0.03(model) and cos 2 beta = 0.91 +/- 0.22(stat) +/- 0.09(syst) +/- 0.07(model). The result for the direct measurement of the angle is beta = (22.5 +/- 4.4(stat) +/- 1.2(syst) +/- 0.6(model))degrees. The last quoted uncertainties are due to the composition of the D-0 -> K-S(0)pi(+)pi(-) decay amplitude model, which is newly established by a Dalitz plot amplitude analysis of a high-statistics e(+) e(-) -> c (c) over bar data sample as part of this analysis. We find the first evidence for cos 2 beta > 0 at the level of 3.7 standard deviations. The measurement excludes the trigonometric multifold solution pi/2 - beta = (68.1 +/- 0.7)degrees at the level of 7.3 standard deviations and therefore resolves an ambiguity in the determination of the apex of the CKM Unitarity Triangle. The hypothesis of beta = 0 degrees is ruled out at the level of 5.1 standard deviations, and thus CP violation is observed in B-0 -> D-(*) h(0) decays. The measurement assumes no direct CP violation in B-0 -> D-(*) h(0) decays., 26 Dec. 2018, 98, 11, Scientific journal

We present the result of the search for the rare B meson decay of B+→+νγ with =e,μ. For the search the full data set recorded by the Belle experiment of 711 fb-1 integrated luminosity near the (4S) resonance is used. Signal candidates are reconstructed for photon energies Eγ larger than 1 GeV using a novel multivariate tagging algorithm. The novel algorithm fully reconstructs the second B meson produced in the collision using hadronic modes and was specifically trained to recognize the signal signature in combination with hadronic tag-side B meson decays. This approach greatly enhances the performance. Background processes that can mimic this signature, mainly charmless semileptonic decays and continuum processes, are suppressed using multivariate methods. The number of signal candidates is determined by analyzing the missing mass squared distribution as inferred from the signal side particles and the kinematic properties of the tag-side B meson. No significant excess over the background-only hypothesis is observed and upper limits on the partial branching fraction ΔB with Eγ>1 GeV individually for electron and muon final states as well as for the average branching fraction of both lepton final states are reported. We find a Bayesian upper limit of ΔB(B+→+νγ)<3.0×10-6 at 90% CL and also report an upper limit on the first inverse moment of the light-cone distribution amplitude of the B meson of λB>0.24 GeV at 90% CL., 01 Dec. 2018, 98, 11, Scientific journal

We measure the inclusive production cross sections of hyperons and charmed baryons from e+e- annihilation using a 800 fb-1 data sample taken near the (4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e+e- collider. The feed-down contributions from heavy particles are subtracted using our data, and the direct production cross sections are presented for the first time. The production cross sections divided by the number of spin states for S=-1 hyperons follow an exponential function with a single slope parameter except for the Σ(1385)+ resonance. Suppression for Σ(1385)+ and Ξ(1530)0 hyperons is observed. Among the production cross sections of charmed baryons, a factor of 3 difference for Λc+ states over Σc states is observed.

We present the measurement of the absolute branching fractions of B+→Xcc̄K+ and B+→D̄(∗)0π+ decays, using a data sample of 772×106 BB̄ pairs collected at the (4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e+e- collider. Here, Xcc̄ denotes ηc, J/ψ, χc0, χc1, ηc(2S), ψ(2S), ψ(3770), X(3872), and X(3915). We do not observe significant signals for X(3872) or X(3915) and set the 90% confidence level upper limits at B(B+→X(3872)K+)<2.6×10-4 and B(B+→X(3915)K+)<2.8×10-4. These represent the most stringent upper limit for B(B+→X(3872)K+) to date and the first limit for B(B+→X(3915)K+). The measured branching fractions for ηc and ηc(2S) are the most precise to date, B(B+→ηcK+)=(12.0±0.8±0.7)×10-4 and B(B+→ηc(2S)K+)=(4.8±1.1±0.3)×10-4, where the first and second uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively., 01 Jan. 2018, 97, 1, 012005, Scientific journal

With the full data sample of 772×106 BB̄ pairs recorded by the Belle detector at the KEKB electron-positron collider, the decay B̄→D∗τ-ν̄τ is studied with the hadronic τ decays τ-→π-ντ and τ-→ρ-ντ. The τ polarization Pτ(D∗) in two-body hadronic τ decays is measured, as well as the ratio of the branching fractions R(D∗)=B(B̄→D∗τ-ν̄τ)/B(B̄→D∗-ν̄), where - denotes an electron or a muon. Our results, Pτ(D∗)=-0.38±0.51(stat)-0.16+0.21(syst) and R(D∗)=0.270±0.035(stat)-0.025+0.028(syst), are consistent with the theoretical predictions of the standard model.

This analysis is based on the data sample containing 772 x 10(6)BB pairs that was collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB energy-asymmetric e(+)e(-) collider. We find evidence for the isospin violation with a significance of 3.1 sigma, Delta(0+) = [+6.2 +/- 1.5(stat) +/- 0.6(syst) +/- 1.2(f (+-)/f(00))] %, where the third uncertainty is due to the uncertainty on the fraction of B+B- to (BB0)-B-0 production in gamma(4S) decays. The measured value is consistent with predictions of the standard model. The result for the difference of CP asymmetries is Delta A(CP) = [+2.4 +/- 2.8(stat) +/- 0.5(syst)] %, consistent with zero. The measured branching fractions and CP asymmetries for charged and neutral B meson decays are the most precise to date.

The data were collected by the Belle experiment at the KEKB e(+) e(-) asymmetric-energy collider running at or near the (4S) and (5S) resonances. No significant signal is observed, and we set an upper limit on the branching fraction of B(Lambda(+)(c) -> phi p(0)) < 15.3 x 10(-5) at 90% confidence level. The contribution of nonresonant Lambda(+)(c) -> K+ K- p pi(0) decays is found to be consistent with zero, and the corresponding upper limit on its branching fraction is set to be B(Lambda(+)(c) ->. K+ K- p pi(0))(NR) < 6.3 x 10(-5) at 90% confidence level. We also search for an intermediate hidden-strangeness pentaquark decay P-s(+) -> phi p.

They are obtained as a function of the total fractional energy and invariant mass for any di-hadron combination in the same hemisphere as defined by the thrust event-shape variable and its axis. Since same-hemisphere dihadrons can be assumed to originate predominantly from the same initial parton, di-hadron fragmentation functions are probed. These di-hadron fragmentation functions are needed as an unpolarized baseline in order to quantitatively understand related spindependent measurements in other processes and to apply them to the extraction of quark transversity distribution functions in the nucleon. The di- hadron cross sections are obtained from a 655 fb(-1) data sample collected at or near the Y (4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e(+)e(-) collider., Aug. 2017, 96, 3, 032005, Scientific journal

The results are based on a data sample that contains 772 x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs collected at the Y (4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e(+)e(-) collider. The measured inclusive branching fraction and direct CP asymmetry are (5.38 +/- 0.40 +/- 0.35) x 10(-6) and -0.170 +/- 0.073 +/- 0.017, respectively, where the first uncertainties are statistical and the second are systematic. The K+K- invariant mass distribution of the signal candidates shows an excess in the region below 1.5 GeV/c(2), which is consistent with the previous studies from BABAR and LHCb.

A new charmoniumlike state X*(3860) that decays to D (D) over bar is observed with a significance of 6.5 sigma. Its mass is (3862(-32)(+26) (+40)(-13) )MeV= c(2), and its width is (201(-67) (+154)(-82) (+88)) MeV. The J(PC) = 0(++) hypothesis is favored over the 2(++) hypothesis at the level of 2.5s.

The results are based on a data sample containing 772 x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs recorded at the Upsilon(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB e(+)e(-) collider. We select a sample of B-0(B) over bar (0) pairs by reconstructing both B mesons in semileptonic decays to D*(-/+)l(+/-). We measure R(D*) = 0.302 +/- 0.030(stat) +/- 0.011(syst), which is within 1.6 sigma of the Standard Model theoretical expectation, where the standard deviation sigma includes systematic uncertainties. We use this measurement to constrain several scenarios of new physics in a model-independent approach., Oct. 2016, 94, 7, 072007, Scientific journal

The production of p (p) over barK(+)K(-) and a Lambda(1520)(0) ((Lambda) over bar (1520)(0)) signal in the pK(-) ((p) over barK(+)) invariant mass spectrum are clearly observed. However, no evidence for an exotic baryon near 1540 MeV/c(2), denoted as Theta(1540)(0) ((Theta) over bar (1540)(0)) or Theta(1540)(++) (Theta(1540)(--)), is seen in the pK(-) ((p) over barK(+)) or pK(+) ((p) over barK(-)) invariant mass spectra.

In this review, we provide topical discussions by selecting X, Y, Z particles, to which Belle has made important contributions. These are X(3872), Y (4260), Z(c)(4430)(+), Z(c)(3900)(+), Z(b)(10610)(+), and Z(b)(10650)(+). Based on the current experimental observations, we discuss these states with emphasis on the hadronic molecule whose dynamics is governed by chiral symmetry and heavy-quark symmetry of QCD.

We measure B(B -> chi X-c1) = (3.03 +/- 0.05 (stat) +/- 0.24(syst)) x 10(-3) and B(B -> chi X-c2) = (0.70 +/- 0.06 (stat) +/- 0.10(syst)) x 10(-3). For the first time, chi(c2) production in exclusive B decays in the modes B-0 -> chi(c2) pi K--(+) and B-0 -> chi(c2) pi(-)pi K-+(+) has been observed, along with first evidence for the B-0 -> chi(c2) pi K--(s)0 decay mode.

Using these decay modes, we observe a difference in the production mechanism of chi(c2) in comparison to chi(c1) in B decays. In addition, we report searches for X(3872) and chi(c1) (2P) in the B+ -> (chi(c1) pi(+)pi(-))K+ decay mode.

We present a determination of the magnitude of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix element |Vcb| using the decay B→Dℓνℓ (ℓ=e,μ) based on 711 fb-1 of e+e-→ (4S) data recorded by the Belle detector and containing 772×106 BB¯ pairs. One B meson in the event is fully reconstructed in a hadronic decay mode, while the other, on the signal side, is partially reconstructed from a charged lepton and either a D+ or D0 meson in a total of 23 hadronic decay modes. The isospin-averaged branching fraction of the decay B→Dℓνℓ is found to be B(B0→D-ℓ+νℓ)=(2.31±0.03(stat)±0.11(syst))%. Analyzing the differential decay rate as a function of the hadronic recoil with the parametrization of Caprini, Lellouch, and Neubert and using the form-factor prediction G(1)=1.0541±0.0083 calculated by FNAL/MILC, we obtain ηEW|Vcb|=(40.12±1.34)×10-3, where ηEW is the electroweak correction factor. Alternatively, assuming the model-independent form-factor parametrization of Boyd, Grinstein, and Lebed and using lattice QCD data from the FNAL/MILC and HPQCD collaborations, we find ηEW|Vcb|=(41.10±1.14)×10-3., 25 Feb. 2016, 93, 3, 1-14, Scientific journal

No significant signal is observed and an upper limit of B(B-0 -> pi(-) tau(+)nu(tau)) < 2.5 x 10(-4) is obtained at the 90% confidence level., Feb. 2016, 93, 3, 052016, Scientific journal

The data sample of 711 fb-1 used in this analysis corresponds to 772×106 BB¯ pairs, collected at the (4S) resonance by the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e+e- collider. We observe 19.8σ and 10.8σ excesses of events for the two decay modes and measure the branching fractions of B0→pΛ¯D- and B0→pΛ¯D∗- to be (25.1±2.6±3.5)×10-6 and (33.6±6.3±4.4)×10-6, respectively, where the first uncertainties are statistical and the second are systematic. These results are not compatible with the predictions based on the generalized factorization approach. In addition, a threshold enhancement in the dibaryon (pΛ¯) system is observed, consistent with that observed in similar B decays., 24 Nov. 2015, 115, 22, 1-8, Scientific journal

The measurement is performed combining the final data samples collected at the Upsilon(4S) resonance by the BABAR and Belle experiments at the asymmetric-energy B factories PEP-II at SLAC and KEKB at KEK, respectively. The data samples contain (471 +/- 3) x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs recorded by the BABAR detector and (772 +/- 11) x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs recorded by the Belle detector. We measure the CP asymmetry parameters -eta S-f = +0.66 +/- 0.10(stat) +/- 0.06(syst) and C = -0.02 +/- 0.07(stat) +/- 0.03(syst). These results correspond to the first observation of CP violation in (B) over bar (0) -> D(CP)((*))h(0) decays. The hypothesis of no mixing-induced CP violation is excluded in these decays at the level of 5.4 standard deviations., Sep. 2015, 115, 12, 121604, Scientific journal

The cross sections measured at root s = 10.866 GeV and corrected for the initial state radiation are sigma(e(+)e(-) --> Upsilon(1S)pi(+)pi(-)) = (2.27 +/- 0.12 +/- 0.14) pb, sigma(e(+)e(-) --> Upsilon(2S)pi(+)pi(-)) = (4.07 +/- 0.16 +/- 0.45) pb, and sigma(e(+)e(-) --> Upsilon(3S)pi(+)pi(-)) = (1.46 +/- 0.09 +/- 0.16) pb.

We report a measurement of the B0 and B+ meson decays to the D-sK0Sπ+ and D-sK+K+ final states, respectively, using 657 × 106BB¯ pairs collected at the Υ(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e+e+ collider. Using the D-s → φ π-, K∗(892)0K- and K0SK- decay modes for the Ds reconstruction, we measure the following branching fractions: B(B0 → D-sK0sπ+) = [0.47 ± 0.06(stat) ± 0.05(syst)] × 10-4 and B(B+ → D-sK+K+) = [0.93 ± 0.22(stat) ± 0.10(syst)] × 10-5. We find the ratio of the branching fraction of B+ → D-sK+K+ to that of the analogous Cabibbo-favored B+ → D-sK+π+ decay to be RB = 0.054 ± 0.013(stat) ± 0.006(syst), which is consistent with the naive factorization model. We also observe a deviation of the DsK invariant-mass distribution from the three-body phase-space model for both studied decays., 26 Feb. 2015, 91, 3, 032008, Scientific journal

We obtain the CP violation parameters A(cp)(B-0 -> pi(+) pi(-)) = +0.33 +/- 0.06(stat) +/- 0.03(syst), S-cp(B-0 -> pi(+) pi(-)) = -0.64 +/- 0.08(stat) +/- 0.03(syst), where A(CP) and S-CP represent the direct and mixing-induced CP asymmetries in B-0 -> pi(+) pi(-) decays, respectively. Using an isospin analysis including results from other Belle measurements, we find 23.8 degrees < phi(2) < 66.8 degrees is disfavored at the 1 sigma level, where phi(2) is one of the three interior angles of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa unitarity triangle related to B-u,B-d decays., Nov. 2013, 88, 9, 092003, Scientific journal

The Y(4260) state is observed, and its resonance parameters are determined. In addition, an excess of pi(+)pi(-) J/psi production around 4 GeV is observed. This feature can be described by a Breit-Wigner parametrization with properties that are consistent with the Y(4008) state that was previously reported by Belle. In a study of Y(4260) -> pi(+)pi(-) J/psi decays, a structure is observed in the M(pi(+/-) J/psi) mass spectrum with 5.2 sigma significance, with mass M = (3894.5 +/- 6.6 +/- 4.5) MeV/c(2) and width Gamma = (63 +/- 24 +/- 26) MeV/c(2), where the errors are statistical and systematic, respectively.

We reconstruct the DK+ pi(-) state in a phase space corresponding to DK*(892)(0). The CP-violating angle phi(3) affects its decay rate via the interference between b -> u and b -> c transitions.

The results are obtained from a data sample containing 535 million BB-meson pairs collected by the Belle experiment at the KEKB e+e- collider. We measure the products of the branching fractions B(B > IC7ic)13(71, Ks K 7T) = (26.7 1.4(stat)+N(syst) 4.9(model)) x 10-6 and 8(B -+ K 71c(25))8(rIc(2S) Ksi(7tT) = (3.4+N(stat + model)t(syst)) x 10-6. Interference with the non-resonant component leads to significant model uncertainty in the measurement of these product branching fractions. Our analysis accounts for this interference and allows the model uncertainty to be reduced.

A search for a charged partner of the X(3872) in the decays B¯0→ K-X+or B+→ K0X+, X+→ π+π0J/ψ resulted in upper limits on the product branching fractions for these processes that are well below expectations for the case that the X(3872) is the neutral member of an isospin triplet. In addition, we examine possible JPCquantum number assignments for the X(3872) based on comparisons of angular correlations between final state particles in X(3872) → π+π-J/ψ decays with simulated data for JPCvalues of 1++and 2-+. We examine the influence of ρ-ω interference in the M(π+π-) spectrum. The analysis is based on a 711 fb-1data sample that contains 772 × 106BB¯ meson pairs collected at the Γ(4S) resonance in the Belle detector at the KEKB e+e-collider., 07 Sep. 2011, 84, 5, 1-15, Scientific journal

The CP asymmetry is measured in four bins of the invariant mass of the K-S(0)pi(+/-) system and found to be compatible with zero with a precision of O(10(-3)) in each mass bin. Limits for the CP violation parameter Im(eta(S)) are given at the 90% confidence level.

Zupanc, Using 535 X 10(6) B-meson pairs collected by the Belle detector at the KEKB e(+)e(-) collider, we measure branching fractions of (7.16 +/- 0.10(stat) +/- 0.60(syst) X 10(-4) for B+ -> J/psi K+ pi(+) pi(-) and (4.31 +/- 0.20(stat) +/- 0.50(syst)) X 10(-4) for B+ -> psi' K+ pi(+) pi(-). We perform amplitude analyses to determine the resonant structure of the K+ pi(+) pi(-) final state in B+ -> J/psi K+ pi(+) pi(-) and B+ -> psi' K+ pi(+) pi(-) and find that the K-1(1270) is a prominent component of both decay modes. There is significant interference among the different intermediate states, which leads, in particular, to a striking distortion of the rho line shape due to the omega. Based on the results of the fit to the B+ -> J/psi K+ pi(+) pi(-) data, the relative decay fractions of the K-1(1270) to K rho, K omega, and K*(892)pi are consistent with previous measurements, but the decay fraction to K-0(*)(1430) is significantly smaller. Finally, by floating the mass and width of the K-1(1270) in an additional fit of the B+ -> J/psi K+ pi(+) pi(-) data, we measure a mass of (1248.1 +/- 3.3(stat) +/- 1.4(syst)) MeV/c(2) and a width of (119.5 +/- 5.2(stat) +/- 6.7(syst)) MeV/c(2) for the K-1(1270)., Feb. 2011, 83, 3, 032005, Scientific journal

Zyukova, We present a new measurement of the unitarity triangle angle phi(3) using a Dalitz plot analysis of the K-S(0)pi(+)pi(-) decay of the neutral D meson produced in B-+/- -> D-(*()) K-+/- decays. The method exploits the interference between D-0 and (D) over bar (0) to extract the angle phi(3), strong phase delta, and the ratio r of suppressed and allowed amplitudes. We apply this method to a 605 fb(-1) data sample collected by the Belle experiment. The analysis uses three decays: B-+/- -> DK +/-, and B-+/- -> D*K-+/- with D* -> D pi(0) and D* -> D gamma, as well as the corresponding charge-conjugate modes. From a combined maximum likelihood fit to the three modes, we obtain phi(3) = 78.4 degrees (+10.8 degrees)(-11.6 degrees) +/- 3.6 degrees (syst) +/- 8.9 degrees (model). CP conservation in this process is ruled out at the confidence level (1 - CL) = 5 X 10(-4), or 3.5 standard deviations., Jun. 2010, 81, 11, 112002, Scientific journal

The first uncertainty is statistical, the second is due to the experimental systematics, and the third is from uncertainties in the D-s(+) decay branching fractions.

  • Refereed, IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium Conference Record, Radiation hardness test of Pr:LuAG and BSO scintillators, Tomoko Iwashita; Kenkichi Miyabayashi, We measured radiation hardness of two kinds of newly developed inorganic scintillators, Pr:LuAG and BSO. The amounts of irradiation for our test were -rays up to 100 Gy and neutrons up to 1012 neutrons/cm2 fluence. These radiation doses are corresponding to SuperKEKB/Belle-II 10 years operation. For -rays, both Pr:LuAG and BSO scintillators showed reasonably good radiation hardness, (113)% and (63)%, respectively, for 100 Gy. For neutrons, at 1011 neutrons/cm2, light output degradation was 6% in both scintillators. At 1012 neutrons/cm2, BSO is still found to be robust, light output decrease is 8%, while Pr:LuAG shows 36% degradation. © 2010 IEEE., 2010, 278, 279, International conference proceedings

The leakage current of irradiated MPPC samples linearly increases with total irradiated doses due to radiation damage, which is not completely recovered even after a year from the irradiation. No significant change has been observed in the gains at least up to 8.0 Gy (9.1 × 107 n / mm2 in 1 MeV neutron equivalent fluence, Φeq). The device has completely lost its photon-counting capability due to baseline fluctuations and noise pile-up after 21 Gy irradiation (2.4 × 108 n / mm2 in Φeq), which might be problematic for some applications, such as ring-imaging Cherenkov detectors. We have found that the pulse-height resolution has been slightly deteriorated after 42 Gy irradiation (4.8 × 108 n / mm2 in Φeq), where the measured sample has been illuminated with a few hundred photons. This effect should be considered in the case of energy-measurement applications. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved., 21 May 2009, 603, 3, 301, 308, Scientific journal

These results are obtained from a large data sample that contains 657x10(6) B(B)over bar pairs collected at the Upsilon(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e(+)e(-) collider. For the CP violation parameters, we obtain two consistent solutions that describe the data well. The first of these solutions may be preferred by external information from other measurements. There is no evidence for direct CP violation in B-0 ->rho(0)(770)K-S(0), B-0 -> f(0)(980)K-S(0) and B-0 -> K*+(892)pi(-), while measurements of mixing-induced CP violation in B-0 ->rho(0)(770)K-S(0) and B-0 -> f(0)(980)K-S(0) decays are consistent with that of b -> c(c)over bars decays. We also measured the phase difference between B-0 -> K*+(892)pi(-) and (B)over bar(0)-> K*-(892)pi(+), which may be used to extract phi(3)., Apr. 2009, 79, 7, 052006, Scientific journal

From a Dalitz plot analysis in which the pi(+)chi(c1) mass structures are represented by Breit-Wigner resonance amplitudes, we determine masses and widths of: M-1=(4051 +/- 14(-41)(+20)) MeV/c(2), Gamma(1)=(82(-17-22)(+21+47)) MeV, M-2=(4248(-29-35)(+44+180)) MeV/c(2), and Gamma(2)=(177(-39-61)(+54+316)) MeV; and product branching fractions of B((B)overbar(0)-> K(-)Z(1,2)(+))xB(Z(1,2)(+)->pi(+)chi(c1))=(3.0(-0.8-1.6)(+1.5+3.7))x10(-5) and (4.0(-0.9-0.5)(+2.3+19.7))x10(-5), respectively. Here the first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic. The significance of each of the pi(+)chi(c1) structures exceeds 5 sigma, including the systematic uncertainty from various fit models.

We fully reconstruct one neutral B meson in the psi(2S)K(S)(0) CP-eigenstate decay channel, and the flavor of the accompanying B meson is identified to be either B(0) or (B) over bar (0) from its decay products. CP violation parameters are obtained from the asymmetries in the distributions of the proper-time intervals between the two B decays S(psi(2S)KS)(0) = + 0.72 +/- 0.09 (stat) +/- 0.03 (syst), A(psi(2S)KS)(0) = + 0.04 +/- 0.07 (stat) +/- 0.05 (syst).

Zupanc, Equal amounts of matter and antimatter are predicted to have been produced in the Big Bang, but our observable Universe is clearly matter- dominated. One of the prerequisites(1) for understanding this elimination of antimatter is the nonconservation of charge- parity ( CP) symmetry. So far, two types of CP violation have been observed in the neutral K meson ( K-0) and B meson ( B-0) systems: CP violation involving the mixing(2) between K-0 and its antiparticle (K) over bar (0) ( and likewise(3,4) for B-0 and (B) over bar (0)), and direct CP violation in the decay of each meson(5-8). The observed effects for both types of CP violation are substantially larger for the B-0 meson system. However, they are still consistent with the standard model of particle physics, which has a unique source(9) of CP violation that is known to be too small(10) to account for the matter-dominated Universe. Here we report that the direct CP violation in charged B-+/- --> K-+/- pi(0) decay is different from that in the neutral B-0 counterpart. The direct CP- violating decay rate asymmetry, A(K)+/- (pi 0) ( that is, the difference between the number of observed B- --> K- pi(0) event versus B+ --> K+ pi(0) events, normalized to the sum of these events) is measured to be about +7%, with an uncertainty that is reduced by a factor of 1.7 from a previous measurement(7). However, the asymmetry A(K+/-) p(-/+) for B-0 --> K- pi(+) versus B-0 --> K+ pi(-) is at the -10% level(7,8). Although it is susceptible to strong interaction effects that need further clarification, this large deviation in direct CP violation between charged and neutral B meson decays could be an indication of new sources of CP violation - which would help to explain the dominance of matter in the Universe., Mar. 2008, 452, 7185, 332, U3, Scientific journal

Search for B -> J/psi eta' K is performed and no significant signal is observed. The upper limits of the branching fractions are obtained to be B(B-+/- -> J/psi eta' K-+/-) < 8.8 x 10(-5) and B(B-0 -> J/psi eta' K-S(0)) < 2.5 x 10(-5) at 90 % C.L. The B-0 -> J/psi eta decay is observed with 8.1 sigma statistical significance, the branching fraction is obtained to be B(B-0 -> J/psi eta) = (9.5 +/- 1.7 +/- 0.8) x 10(-5). The study on B-0 -> J/psi pi(+)pi(-)decays are performed and rho(0) meson is found to be the dominant source of the di-pion. The obtained branching fractions are B(B-0 -> J/psi pi(+)pi(-)) = (2.4 +/- 0.3 +/- 0.2) x 10(-5) and B(B-0 -> J/psi rho(0)) = (2.0 +/- 0.2 +/- 0.2) x 10(-5). The results for B-0 -> J/psi pi(+)pi(-) are preliminary., 2008, 110, International conference proceedings

Zupanc, We report the results of a study of neutral B meson decays to the D-0 pi(+)pi(-) final state, where the D-0 is fully reconstructed. The results are obtained from an event sample containing 388x10(6) B (B) over bar -meson pairs collected in the Belle experiment at the KEKB e(+)e(-) collider. The total branching fraction of the three-body decay B((B) over bar (0)-> D-0 pi(+)pi(-))=(8.4 +/- 0.4(stat)+/- 0.8(syst))x10(-4) has been measured. The intermediate resonant structure of these three-body decays has been studied. From a Dalitz plot analysis we have obtained the product of the branching fractions for D-2(*+) and D-0(*+) production: B((B) over bar (0)-> D-2(*+)pi(-))xB(D-2(*+)-> D-0 pi(+))=(2.15 +/- 0.17(stat)+/- 0.29(syst)+/- 0.12(mod))x10(-4), and B((B) over bar (0)-> D-0(*+)pi(-))xB(D-0(*+)-> D-0 pi(+))=(0.60 +/- 0.13(stat)+/- 0.15(syst)+/- 0.22(mod))x10(-4). This is the first observation of the (B) over bar (0)-> D-0(*+)pi(-) decay. The (B) over bar (0)-> D-0 rho(0) and D(0)f(2) branching fractions are measured to be: B((B) over bar (0)-> D-0 rho(0))=(3.19 +/- 0.20(stat)+/- 0.24(syst)+/- 0.38(mod))x10(-4), and B((B) over bar (0)-> D(0)f(2))=(1.20 +/- 0.18(stat)+/- 0.21(syst)+/- 0.32(mod))x10(-4)., Jul. 2007, 76, 1, Scientific journal

We find the relative difference of the lifetimes y(CP) to be [1.31 +/- 0.32(stat)+/- 0.25(syst)]%, 3.2 standard deviations from zero. We also search for a CP asymmetry between D-0 and (D) over bar (0) decays; no evidence for CP violation is found.

Zupanc, We report a measurement of the inclusive electron energy spectrum for charmed semileptonic decays of B mesons in a 140fb-1 data sample collected at the Υ(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric energy e+e- collider. We determine the first four moments of the electron energy spectrum for threshold values of the electron energy between 0.4 and 2.0 GeV. In addition, we provide values of the partial branching fraction (zeroth moment) for the same electron threshold energies, and independent measurements of the B+ and B0 partial branching fractions at 0.4 GeV and 0.6 GeV electron threshold energies. We measure the independent B+ and B0 partial branching fractions with electron threshold energies of 0.4 GeV to be ΔB(B+→Xceν)=(10. 79±0.25(stat.)±0.27(sys.))% and ΔB(B0→Xceν)=(10. 08±0.30(stat.)±0.22(sys.))%.

Each piel works in limited Geiger mode with an inverse bias voltage around 80 V. The MPPC has many remarkable features such as high gain, large photon detection efficiency, low cost and tolerance for magnetic field. Fundamental properties, such as the gain, dark noise rate and inter-pixel cross-talk, have been measured with three different samples which have 100, 400, and 1600 pixels. Variation of the gain over 750 samples, and uniformity of the gain and photon sensitivity within one pixel are also evaluated. As the result of the tests, it is confirmed that the MPPC has satisfactory performance for many appplications, not only for high energy physics experiments but also for medical engineering systems.

Both assuming CP conservation and allowing for CP violation, we fit the decay-time distribution for the mixing parameters x(') and y('), as well as for the parameter R-D, the ratio of doubly Cabibbo-suppressed decays to Cabibbo-favored decays. The 95% confidence level region in the (x('2),y(')) plane is obtained using a frequentist method. Assuming CP conservation, we find x('2)< 0.72x10(-3) and -9.9x10(-3)< y(')< 6.8x10(-3) at the 95% confidence level; these are the most stringent constraints on the mixing parameters to date.

The measured branching fractions for B+ -> chi(c1) K+, B-0, chi(c1) K-0, B-0 -> chi(c1) K*(0) and B+ -> chi(c1) K*(+) decay modes are (4.5 +/- 0.2 +/- 0.5) x 10(-4), (3.5 +/- 0.3 +/- 0.5) x 10(-4), (3.1 +/- 0.3 +/- 0.7) x 10(-4) and (4.1 +/- 0.6 +/- 0.9) x 10(-4), respectively, where the first error is statistical and the second error is systematic. We do not observe statistically significant signals for the B -> chi(c2) K(K*) decay modes and set upper limits at the 90% confidence level.

No evidence for a signal was found in either of the decay modes and we set the following upper limits for the branching fractions: B(tau(-) -> Lambda($) over bar pi(-)) < 1.4 x 10(-7) and B(tau(-) -> Lambda($) over bar pi(-)) < 0.72 x 10(-7) at the 90% confidence level.

Events are tagged by fully reconstructing one of the B mesons, produced in pairs from Upsilon(4S). The signal for b -> u semileptonic decay is distinguished from the b -> c background using the hadronic mass M-X, the leptonic invariant mass squared q(2) and the variable P(+)equivalent to E-X-parallel to p ->(X)parallel to. The results are obtained for events with p(center dot)(*)>= 1 GeV/c, in three kinematic regions (1) M-X< 1.7 GeV/c(2), (2) M-X< 1.7 GeV/c(2) combined with q(2)> 8 GeV2/c(2), and by (3) P+< 0.66 GeV/c.

The flavor separated measurements of the decay amplitudes indicate no evidence for direct CP violation. T-odd CP violation is studied using the asymmetries in triple product correlations, and the results are consistent with the standard model null predictions.

One of two B mesons is fully reconstructed in a CP-eigenstate or a flavor-eigenstate decay channel. The flavor of the accompanying B meson is identified from its decay products. From the distributions of the time interval between the two B meson decay points, we obtain sin2 phi(1)=0.728 +/- 0.056(stat)+/- 0.023(syst), vertical bar lambda vertical bar=1.007 +/- 0.041(stat)+/- 0.033(syst), tau(B)(0)=[1.534 +/- 0.008(stat)+/- 0.010(syst)] ps, tau(B)(+)=[1.635 +/- 0.011(stat)+/- 0.011(syst)] ps, tau(B)(+)/tau(B)(0)=1.066 +/- 0.008(stat)+/- 0.008(syst) and Delta m(d)=[0.511 +/- 0.005(stat)+/- 0.006(syst)] ps(-1). The results for sin2 phi(1) and vertical bar lambda vertical bar are consistent with the standard model expectations.

Žontar, We report the observation of a narrow charmoniumlike state produced in the exclusive decay process B+/--->K(+/-)pi(+)pi(-)J/psi. This state, which decays into pi(+)pi(-)J/psi, has a mass of 3872.0+/-0.6(stat)+/-0.5(syst) MeV, a value that is very near the M-D(0)+M-D*0 mass threshold. The results are based on an analysis of 152M B-(B) over bar events collected at the Y(4S) resonance in the Belle detector at the KEKB collider. The signal has a statistical significance that is in excess of 10sigma., 23 Dec. 2003, 91, 26, 262001, Scientific journal

One neutral B meson is fully reconstructed in one of the specified decay channels, and the flavor of the accompanying B meson is identified from its decay products. CP-violation parameters for each of the three modes are obtained from the asymmetries in the distributions of the proper-time intervals between the two B decays. We find that the observed CP asymmetry in the B-->phiK(S)(0) decay differs from the standard model (SM) expectation by 3.5 standard deviations, while the other cases are consistent with the SM., Dec. 2003, 91, 26, 261602, Scientific journal

  • Refereed, Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research, Section A: Accelerators, Spectrometers, Detectors and Associated Equipment, Elsevier, Belle electromagnetic calorimeter, Kenkichi Miyabayashi, We report the performance of the Belle electromagnetic calorimeter for the first three years operation. Good mass resolutions for π0 and η are obtained to be 4.8 and 12.1 MeV/c2, respectively. The degradation of light output due to the radiation damage is small, about 3% for the radiation dose of 40 rad. These performances promise further study of B physics with neutral particle reconstruction. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.

One neutral B meson is reconstructed in a J/psiK(S)(0), psi(2S)K(S)(0), chi(c1)K(S)(0), eta(c)K(S)(0), J/psiK*(0), or J/psiK(L)(0) CP-eigenstate decay channel and the flavor of the accompanying B meson is identified from its decay products. From the asymmetry in the distribution of the time interval between the two B meson decay points, we obtain sin 2phi(1)=0.719+/-0.074(stat)+/-0.035(syst)., Oct. 2002, 66, 7, 071102, Scientific journal

The yield of prompt J/psi mesons in the Y(4S) sample is compatible with that of continuum production; we set an upper limit B(Y(4S)-->J/psiX) < 1.9 x 10(-4) at the 95% confidence level, and find sigma(e(+)e(-)-> J/psi X) = 1.47 +/- 0.10 +/- 0.13 pb. The cross sections for prompt psi(2S) and direct J/psi are measured. The J/psi momentum spectrum, production angle distribution, and polarization are studied., Feb. 2002, 88, 5, 520011, 520016, Scientific journal

Yamauchi, The shape of jets produced in (quasi-) real photon-photon collisions as well as in e+e- annihilation process has been studied with a cone jet finding algorithm, using the data taken with the TOPAZ detector at the TRISTAN e+e- collider at an average center-of-mass energy (√see) of 58 GeV. The results are presented in terms of the jet width as a function of the jet transverse energy (ETjet) as well as a scaled transverse jet energy, XT( = 2ETjet/√s)- The jet width narrows as ETjet increases however, at the same value of ETjet the jet width in γγ collisions at TRISTAN is significantly narrower than that in γp collisions at HERA. By comparing our results with the data in other reactions, it has been shown that the jet width in γγ, γp, pp̄ collisions as well as the e+e- annihilation process has an approximate scaling behavior as a function of XT. © 1999 Elsevier Science B.V.

Yamamoto, The strong coupling constant αs was determined from analyses of the thrust, heavy jet mass and, differential 2-jet rate, using e+e- hadronic events at s = 58 GeV with the TOPAZ detector at TRISTAN. The NLLjet Monte Carlo simulation (NLLjet) and analytic formulae based on resummation up to the next-to-leading logarithms combined with O(α2 s) calculations were used to evaluate αs. The average αs values at Q2 = (58 GeV)2 from the analyses are αs = 0.125 ± 0.009 for NLLjet and αs = 0.132 ± 0.008 for the resummed analytic formulae. © 1993., 02 Sep. 1993, 313, 3-4, 475, 482, Scientific journal

Mohanty, Charged lepton flavor violation is forbidden in the Standard Model but possible in several new physics scenarios. In many of these models, the radiative decays τ± → ℓ±γ (ℓ = e, μ) are predicted to have a sizeable probability, making them particularly interesting channels to search at various experiments. An updated search via τ± → ℓ±γ using full data of the Belle experiment, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 988 fb−1, is reported for charged lepton flavor violation. No significant excess over background predictions from the Standard Model is observed, and the upper limits on the branching fractions, B(τ± → μ±γ) ≤ 4.2 × 10−8 and B(τ± → e±γ) ≤ 5.6 × 10−8, are set at 90% confidence level.

Tsunoda, Radiation damage of Multi-Pixel Photon Counters (MPPCs) caused by proton and neutron irradiation was evaluated. An increase of the leakage current, which is an indication of radiation damage on silicon devices, was observed after both the proton and neutron irradiation. Darknoise rates significantly increased due to the damage and this effect resulted in the loss of the photon counting capability because of the noise pile-up. From the leakage current measurement we found the damage level of the MPPCs caused by the neutron influence of 109n/mm2is almost same level as the case of 20 Gy proton irradiation. © Copyright owned by the author(s)., 01 Dec. 2007

    • 特定領域研究, 2008, 2009, 20039007, セラミック製法によるプラセオジム添加LuAGシンチレーターの基礎特性評価, 宮林 謙吉, 日本学術振興会, 科学研究費助成事業 特定領域研究, 奈良女子大学, 2200000, 2200000, Pr添加LuAGシンチレーターに加え、BSOシンチレーターにも着目し、GEANT4ソフトウエアを用いたシミュレーションを行い、期待される性能について評価するとともに、ガンマ線と中性子線による放射線耐性試験を行った。シミュレーションによる性能評価は、この二つのシンチレーターの密度およびモリエール半径が互いに近い値であることから、代表してBSOをとりあげ、CsIシンチレーターの場合と比較した。既存のBelle実験で用いられているCsIシンチレーターの長さは30cmで16輻射長に対応する。BSOでは長さ23cmのシンチレーターで20輻射長に対応し、電磁カスケードシャワーの漏れが約半分になる。このため、1GeVのガンマ線に対するエネルギー分解能は、30cm長のCsIでは1.5%であるのに対して23cm長のBSOでは0.8%と顕著に改善することがわかった。放射線耐性についてはガンマ線で最大100グレイ、中性子で最大10^<12>neutrons/cm^2までの照射を行った。ガンマ線についてはどちらのシンチレーターも顕著な光量低下は見られなかった。中性子ではBSOは10^<12>neutrons/cm^2を被曝しても8%の光量低下で実用上問題ないが、Pr添加LuAGシンチレーターは同量の被曝で35%の光量低下を起こしてしまうことがわかった。
    • 若手研究(B), 2004, 2006, 16740146, B中間子のファイ中間子・パイ中間子への二体崩壊の研究, 宮林 謙吉, 日本学術振興会, 科学研究費助成事業 若手研究(B), 奈良女子大学, 1500000, 1500000, 対象としたB中間子のファイ中間子・パイ中間子への二体崩壊反応は、きわめて稀な反応で、直接検出が難しいため、間接的な探索として、B中間子のプサイ中間子・パイ中間子への似たい崩壊反応における直接的CP非保存の測定を実行した。この場合、ツリー振幅と呼ばれる弱い相互作用の最低次の振幅には複素位相が入らないが、ペンギン振幅と呼ばれる1ループ振幅はファイ中間子・パイ中間子への崩壊過程のダイヤグラム中でカラー荷ゼロの中間状態から生じるストレンジクオーク対をチャームクオーク対に置き換えただけで、Vtdに起因する複素位相を含むところが共通である。したがってツリー振幅とペンギン振幅の間の干渉効果の帰結である直接的CP非保存の測定が間接測定の役割を果たす。 これは、中性B中間子、荷電B中間子の両方について実行した。前者の場合は、中性B中間子および反中性B中間子のどちらもが共通に崩壊できる終状態であるので、反対側のBのフレーバーをその崩壊生成物から同定し、反B中間子とB中間子の間で崩壊が起きた時刻の分布に見られる差を測定する「time-dependent CP violation」の方法を用いた。データはKEKB加速器/Belle測定器で収集した533 M B中間子対事象のデータを用い、290候補事象を得て、最尤度法によってCP非保存パラメーターを求めたところ、直接的CP非保存は+0.08±0.16±0.05となり、ゼロと無矛盾であった。 荷電B中間子については、陰電荷のものと陽電荷のものの間の崩壊分岐比の比対称度を求めたところ、0.02±0.05±0.02となり、これまたゼロと無矛盾な結果となった。 以上のことより、B中間子の崩壊過程においてクオーク対をカラー荷ゼロの中間状態から作るペンギン振幅はツリー振幅に比べて小さいという知見が得られた。
    • 特定領域研究, 2002, 2003, 14046214, 純ヨウ化セシウムカウンターの光検出デバイスのマウント方法の開発, 宮林 謙吉; 野口 誠之, 日本学術振興会, 科学研究費助成事業 特定領域研究, 奈良女子大学, 2900000, 2900000, (1)高輝度Bファクトリー実験(スーパーBファクトリー)における端冠部カロリーメーターの試作器として、純ヨウ化セシウム結晶を用いた試作カウンター20本を使用したテストビーム実験をロシア連邦・ノボシビルスク市のBudker原子核物理研究所のROKK-1Mビームラインで行った。 (2)これに際して、光検出デバイスとして直径2インチのフォトテトロード(4極光電子増倍管)が現在の時点での有力候補である。結晶の光読み出し面の寸法は5.5センチ×5.5センチであることからフォトテトロードは一つしかマウントできないため、これを交換可能な構造とするために光学的結合はオプティカルグリースの充填によるものとした。 (3)オプティカルグリースの充填はフォトテトロードの機械的保持をする能力はないので、機械的強度は結晶に設けたネジ穴にフランジを固定し、ここに前置増幅器・高電圧分配器を内臓したアルミニウム製ケーシングを取り付けることによってフォトテトロードを支持した。オプティカルグリースによる光学的結合を安定化するために、ゴムブッシュでフォトテトロードを充填したオプティカルグリースに緩やかに押し付ける構造とした。 (4)こうして製作した試作カウンター20本の信号を、時定数30nsの波形整形器・サンプリング周波数40MHzで12ビットのフラッシュADCを用いて読み出した試験では、既存のタリウム添加ヨウ化セシウム結晶を使用したカウンターと同等のエネルギー分解能(100MeVの光子に対して2%)を達成できた。
    • Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (C), 2000, 2003, 12640277, Search for CP Violation in the tau Lepton Decays., HAYASHI Hisaki; MIYABAYASHI Kenkichi, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (C), Nara Women's University, 2300000, 2300000, In this research project, we have studied the various properties of the tau lepton using the large amount of tau sample accumulated by the Belle detector in the electron-positron storage ring (KEKB) at KEK, Japan. The KEKB is the highest luminosity machine in the world, which recently achieves to the value of 1.0x10^<34>/cm^2/sec^2. Using the large amount of tau-lepton sample, the topics we have studied include; 1)Search for CP violation in tau decays (paper(1)) 2)Search for Electric Dipole Moment of tau lepton (paper (4),(5)); 3)Search for Lepton-Flavor-Violating decays (paper (2),(7),(8),(9)); 4)Measurement of the 2π spectral function in the decay τ→ππν(paper (6)). In the items 1) and 2), we carried out the search for the CP-violating phenomena in the tau-decay processes and in the tau-pair production. In 3), we have searched for the lepton-flavor-violation(LFV) decays for various decays modes including τ→μγ、μη、μμμ、μee. While LFV decays are not observed yet, we obtained new upper limits in the range 1-3x10^-7 at 90% confidence level using 80-130/fb data. These limits improve the previous results by one order of magnitude and provide the limit to the theoretical models based on SUSY and right-handed heavy neutrinos. The 2pi spectral function in 4) is the important observable to improve the theoretical prediction of the muon anomalous magnetic moment (g-2), where the largest uncertainty exists in the hadronic vacuum polarization term. In order to make the precise measurement, careful checks are carried out on the various detector effects including pi0 efficiency, triggers and background. The preliminary results are presented in the paper (6) and we are now preparing a full paper for this research.
    • 奨励研究(A), 2000, 2001, 12740155, B中間子のプサイ粒子・パイ中間子への崩壊分岐比の測定, 宮林 謙吉, 日本学術振興会, 科学研究費助成事業 奨励研究(A), 奈良女子大学, 1200000, 1200000, 高エネルギー加速器科学研究機構KEKB電子・陽電子衝突型加速器と、Bella測定器によって収集したB中間子対生成3200万事象のデータから、B/^0→J/ψπ^0破壊の候補事象を27事象(バックグラウンド2.3事象を含む)観測した。この結果から、B^0→J/ψπ^0過程の崩壊分岐比をBr(B^0→J/ψπ^0)=(2.3±0.5(stat.)±0.2(syst.))×10^<-5>と得た。 また、類似の破壊モードであるB^0→J/ψηとB^0→J/ψρ^0の測定も行った。前者は9候補事象(バックグラウンド3事象を含む)、後者は57事象(バックグラウンド24.7事象)を観測し。この結果これらの崩壊過程の破壊分岐比を以下のように得た。 Br(B^0→J/ψη)=(1.6±0.8(stat.)±0.2(syst.))×10^<-5> Br(B^0→J/ψρ^0)=(3.7±0.9(stat.)±0.5(syst.))×10^<-5>。 これより、今後3年間で300fb^<-1>のデータ蓄積が期待されることから、今回破壊分岐比測定を行ったB^0→J/ψπ^0、B^0→J/ψη、B^0→J/ψρ^0過程によるCP非保存パラメータsin2φ1の測定を行い、既に発見されたB^0→J/ψKsによるCP非保存の結果と比較することで林益川理論の精密検証が可能であることを示した。

Physics reserch for Direct CP Violation Studies of direct CP violation in B-meson decays has been progressed along with accumulation of data at KEKB/Belle experiment. We succeeded to identify B→DK, D^*K, Dπ and D^*π sugbaks sebsutuve ti φ_3 angle in KM CP-triangle and measured their branching ratios. The CP asymmetry in B→Kp decay is also observed as -0.22(B^0→Kπ^±+Kπ^0)<0.25. We have looked for a signal of new physics in rae B-meson decays and the branching ratio of B→Kηηwas mesured for the first time as (0.99±0.36±0.12)×10^<-6>. Concerning to tau-lepton physics, we have examined a violation of CP/T invariance in ters of tau's EDM and resulted in a ten times higher sensitivity than previous measurement as dπ < 2×10^<-7>e ・ cm. We also looked for lepton flavor violation π→μγ decay and reached to the most sensitive upper-limit of 1.0×10^<-6>. In the final year, we have organized the international conference of "B Physics and CP Violation (BCP4)" at Ise, Shima, and reported and discussed our outcomes from this project. In 2001 we have held a symposium "The Lost AntiWorld" under the 『University and Science』 public lecture series managed by NEXT at sendai to report our reserch to public. The both meeting were carried out quite successfully. 2. R&D for new detectors We, Nagoya group, invented a new type of ring imaging Cherenkov counter named as TOP counter, and studied its basic performances. A silica aerogel RICH detector and a Gas cherenkov counter were examined by KEK group and Osaka-city group, respectively. Using test pulsers and beams the basic properties of these detectors were investigated.
