KLOE GM Capri May 2003 K e3 analysis steps : K decay vertex 0 in EMC Triggering tag on one side e ± id : ToF,Kin,De/Dx The first and the third steps have been studied in the context of the KK and K ± ± 0 0 analysis. We started to develop methods to extract efficiency and systematics for the other steps (possibly from the data)

3
KLOE GM Capri May 2003 K e3 :tracking & vertex efficiency We study a method to measure on data the efficiency to identify a K charged decay in the DC: decay = track K x track daughte r x vert in different kinematical region of the Ke3 spectrum using other K ± decay with overlapping spectrum p(MeV/c) K l3 ( segnale ) K + K + 0 0 K + 0 fit tracce + vertice The aim is to select a sample of events where the vertex in the DC can be detected by means of ECAL quantities. We select a sample of tagged events and look at the other side

We are exploring the possibility to use the info from the tag side. A REFINED DE/DX (!!) is required by K crossing the DC wall and BP. t0t0

KLOE GM Capri May 2003 K e3 : decay & K momentum extrapolation position resolution ~ 4 pb -1 ; 2002 data < 1 cm Dx at first hit (cm) Dr at first hit (cm) The check on the resolution achieved on the extrapolated position of the signal K has been made on double tag event (K → -K → 0 ). The extrapolation from the tag side is compared with the fitted position and momentum of the signal ( 0 ) kaon at first hit in DC. Tails are expected mainly due to Landau fluctuations in dc wall energy loss K e3 : decay & K momentum extrapolation position resolution

7
KLOE GM Capri May 2003 K e3 : decay & K momentum extrapolation momentum resolution The extrapolation can be further optimized. Up to now it has been made using solenoidal constant B field… Must be taken into account that errors on signal K momentum and position are correlated. Dp at first hit (MeV/c) Dpx at first hit (MeV/c) D at first hit (deg) = 6 Mev/c = 4 Mev/c tt Ehm.. failed fit with 2 gaussian !!

8
KLOE GM Capri May 2003 K e3 : decay & K momentum extrapolation: vertex resolution The unknown decay path of the signal K along the extrapolated helix can be found imposing the consistency on the 0 invariant mass, on the K and s tof. Found the vertex, the cluster energy and position gives the 0 momentum. Then, with the K momentum at the vertex we obtain the ± momentum. Dr vertex (cm) Dx vertex (cm) Z (cm) R (cm) Vertex position

9
KLOE GM Capri May 2003 K e3 : decay & K momentum extrapolation: ± momentum resolution The results obtained are based on a toy 2 evaluation without using the info from the charged cluster: Starting point for a fit constrained. good resolution on p ± is needed to: Correctly evaluate the decay with respect of charged pion momentum Reject the k l3 decay using the position and the time of the 4th cluster ( should be the charged one…) Dpx ± (Mev/c) 00 tt tt ±± tt K tag tt pKpK pKpK p0p0 p ± = p K - p 0 To be continued…..

10
KLOE GM Capri May 2003 K e3 : possible Pid for e ± P* (MeV/c) Mass from ToF (Mev**2) Possible strategies for electron ID relies on kinematic cuts, Tof, De/dx, different behaviour in ECAL ( see M.Testa talk) or a mixture of some of them. The approach is to use an ECAL based separation method to extract the signal and a DC driven separation method to check systematics, or vice versa with no use of MC. For more details on possible use of DE/Dx I refer to Erika presentation.

KLOE GM Capri May 2003 BR(K 0 0 ) Update of BR(K 0 0 ) analysis The work done until December 2002 (112 pb –1 ) was reported in full detail in KLOE Memo # 279 Referee’s comments have brought to revise some of the requirements/techniques used in the analysis. A larger data sample (all statistics) has been used 1) to improve final uncertainty ; 2) to avoid statistical correlations between control samples. Now 240 out of 411 pb-1 are now used for the control samples and the rest for the signal measurement. The control sample for estimating K has been redefined to better take into account the effect of nuclear interactions.
