June 9, Tetsuro Sekiguchi, KEK BNL-E949 Collaboration The E949 experiment The analysis The results Conclusions BNL, FNAL, UNM, Stony Brook Univ. (USA) Alberta, TRIUMF (Canada) IHEP, INR (Russia) Fukui, KEK, Kyoto, NDA, Osaka, Osaka RCNP (Japan)
June 9, BNL-E949 = Successor of E787 side viewend view Signal = Stopped + nothing Low energy beam and stop in the target (intensity = E787) Kinematics measurement momentum, energy and range in the stopping counter Photon veto hermetic detectors
June 9, Improved kinematics measurement Kinamatics measurement is sensitive to signal selection RS Layer 1-5 replacement more light output RS gain monitor system better energy calibration
June 9, Improved photon veto Rejection to background as a function of acceptance for E787 and E949. better rejection at 80% of nominal acceptance. New detectors in blue.
June 9, Data Taking Physics run in 2002 (12 weeks) Beam condition was not optimized Detector worked very well Smooth data taking
June 9, Analysis Signal region “the BOX” Background sources Analysis Strategy Blind Analysis Measure Background level with real data To avoid bias, 1/3 of data cut tuning 2/3 of data background measurement Characterize backgrounds using back- ground functions Likelihood Analysis
June 9, Background characterization Background can be characterized using background functions For muon backgrounds Neural net function for and but range is small due to interactions in RS. Changing cut position Acceptance & background level at each point of parameter Functions
June 9, Likelihood Analysis Branching ratio and Confidence level Both and are small Poisson statistic The ratio of two Poisson probabilities # of observed candidate events in the cell The signal region is divided into cells. C ell construction by binning the parameter space of each function. The signal and the background in the cell The cell is characterized by the signal to background ratio Likelihood ratio technique (T. Junk [NIM A434, 435 (1999)]) (BR) ( : Acceptance) Likelihood estimator of cells containing candidate events
June 9, For the likelihood analysis, important is the ratio in each cell NOT the total background level in signal region. Sensitivity and background Sensitivity Background Note: 10% larger acceptance by enlarging the signal region, resulting in more backgrounds All cuts are fixed and ready to open the BOX ! Total acceptance (%) Sensitivity ( ) N K (10 12 )
June 9, Opening the BOX Range (cm) and Energy (MeV) for E949 data after all other cuts applied. Solid line shows signal region. Single candidate found.
June 9, Event Display
June 9, Branching ratio & Confidence level (68% CL) E949(02) = combined E787&E949. E949 projection with full running period. (~60 weeks) E949 result alone: Combine E787 and E949 results increase statistics
June 9, Conclusions Upgrades of E787 to E949 were successful. Likelihood analysis was performed to measure E949 has observed an additional candidate. (68% CL, PNN1 region) from the combined E787 and E949 result. We need more data. - Analysis of “ below(PNN2) region ” - Further E949 running?

June 9, TD pulse shape
June 9, Events with early decay are selected signal: blue background: red arrow: candidate event
June 9, Signal rate and background level for the candidate cell Signal S i Background b i
June 9, Acceptance calculation Cross check
June 9, Verify background prediction by loosening cuts Cut R = PV or TD: loosen by Cut K = KIN: loosen by more background event should be observed in loosened BOX. ( )
June 9, Branching ratio and confidence limits 2002 candidate event alone Branching ratio: Combined measurement ( ) Combined BR:
June 9, Likelihood Analysis with T. Junk method The Poisson probability to observe d i with S i + b i or b i expected S i (BR) BR : signal BR: N K : # of Kaon decay A i : Acceptance b i : background d i : # of observed events
