Barbara Sciascia – LNF 1 K semileptonic BR measurement B. Sciascia 4 may 2006 KpmKSL joint meeting
Barbara Sciascia – LNF 2 Analysis scheme Tag: Selection. 4 different samples are used. Signal: Selection. Counting by means of a Fit procedure. Efficiency: From MC. Data/MC corrections for Tracking, Track-to-Cluster, and Photon efficiencies. Results: BR(K 0 e ) and BR(K 0 ) Systematics: from Tag bias, FilFo, Cosmic veto/T3, Trigger, K nuclear interaction, Fiducial volume, Signal selection, and Efficiencies.
Barbara Sciascia – LNF 3 Signal selection 1-prong kaon decay vertex in the fiducial volume (40 VTX 150 cm) daughter track extrapol. to EMC Reject two-body decays: p (m ) 195 MeV 0 search: 2 neutral clusters in EmC, with ToF matching the K decay vertex ( t)<3 t ) Spectrum of charged daughter mass, m 2 lept, from TOF measurement: t decay K = t lept -L lept /( lept c) = t -L /c KKKK KKKK eeee Selection of K ± semileptonic decays (K l3 ) Fit m 2 lept spectrum with a linear combination of Ke3 and K 3 shapes, and background contribution.
Barbara Sciascia – LNF 4 Signal selection: m 2 shapes K 0 0 K 0 K nucl.int. K3K3 Ke3 Signals and background have the same signature in m 2. K 0 0 with a 0 undergoing a Dalitz decay Give a m 2 lept under the Ke3 peak. K 0 with an early give a m 2 lept under the K 3 peak
Barbara Sciascia – LNF 5 Background rejection-1 K 0 0 are rejected cutting on E miss -P miss spectrum (<90MeV); the 0 momentum is obtained by mean of a kinematic fit K 0 events are rejected evaluating the missing momentum at the decay vertex, and cutting on momentum of the secondary track in the P miss rest frame (P>80 MeV) E miss -P miss (MeV) K 0 0 K 0, K 0 e K 0 K 0 0 P(MeV) K 0 l
Barbara Sciascia – LNF 6 Signal selection: m 2 final shapes The previous cuts reject about 96% of background events The efficiency on the signal is: about 55% for both Ke3 and K 3 K 0 0 K 0 K nucl.int. The residual background is about 1.5% of the selected K l3 sample, and has the m 2 signature.
Barbara Sciascia – LNF 7 The ingredients of the measure BR(Kl3) = N(Kl3) 1 1 ( TAG (i) BR(i) ) N TAG (1-f NI ) FV SELE TAG (Kl3) Fit results Tag bias correction, from MC (KINK) DATA TCA) DATA 0 ) DATA 4 tag samples (KINK) MC TCA) MC 0 ) MC SELE = SELE_MC CF Cosmic veto/T3 and FilFo correction to the Tag bias, from Data and MC K nuclear interaction correction Fiducial volume efficiency 58% About 9% for each sample
Barbara Sciascia – LNF 8 What’s new Tracking efficiency correction: Dependency on lepton momentum, studied in 2 samples. - Kl3 enriched vs (K ’,K 2) enriched Systematics of the correction from difference of control samples. Signal selection: Good stability wrt selection cuts and tracking variables f NI : Kaon nuclear interaction measured directly on data Small disagreement MC-Data Correction applied to N(K-) + rescale TB

Some checks “of completeness” are still needed. “1- ” include syst. from tag and fit counting ( %) Final error dominated by uncertainty on the efficiency correction (essentially TRK, poor statistics). Syst from tracking calculated and applied “per charge” (not “per tag”): 0.02% absolute
Barbara Sciascia – LNF 10 Conclusions Difference wrt the blessing: essentially due to the previous lack of momentum dependency in the tracking efficiency correction. Important check of negative kaon nuclear interactions, poorly known at p K 100 MeV Playing with Vus (thanks to MM) V US f + (0) value: from (48) to.21699(50) “big” fractional errors: Ke3 at 1.5% and K 3 at 2.5% level. 2 of KLOE measurements: 7.7/4 (Prob 10%); before was 2.3/4. Good agreement with E865 result (…also with rumors from NA48, MA). ? ---- Appreciable difference between charged and neutral estimations ----? Blessing of the final result ready in few weeks

Barbara Sciascia – LNF 15 K ℓ3 - Results The error accounts for the data and Monte Carlo statistics used in the fit, the MC statistics for the efficiency estimation, the Data/MC efficiency corrections, and the systematics on the tag selection. The systematics due to the signal selection efficiency is under evaluation. 2 /nDof for the 4 measurements: Ke3: 3.20/3, P( 2 > 2 ) 36% K 3: 5.32/3, P( 2 > 2 ) 15% Averages carefully calculated taking correlations into account: BR(Ke3) Sys Sig% BR(K 3)3.310 Sys Sig % Tag K - 2Tag K + 2Tag K - 2Tag K + 2 Tag K - 2Tag K + 2Tag K - 2Tag K + 2 KLOE preliminary The error is dominated by the error on Data/MC efficiency correction.
