Physics Analyses B physics: Lifetimes and Oscillations Electroweak Physics Searches: SUSY and Higgs
B lifetimes First measurements which CDF will perform in b sector Necessary step towards oscillation (Test of alignment, tracking, tagging.) Best measurement of B s 0, b. (Unique) HQET: (B + )/ (B 0 )=1.05 ( B s 0 )/ (B 0 )=1.00 ( b )/ (B 0 )=0.9 to 1.0 Experiment: ( b )/ (B 0 ) is 0.78+-.04
B lifetime Millions of B mesons have already been produced in RunII. Need to trigger and identify relevant decays. Leptons easy; hadrons difficult Look for J/ Search for B + J/ + Run II data: tracks with Silicon hits Run I data: UK thesis topic
Bs oscillations P B (t) e - t (1+cos( m t)) Lifetime measurements: prelude to oscillations For B mesons, Flavour eigenstates weak eigenstates So B 0 B 0 Mixing parameter: x = m/ LEP/Barbar: x d = 0.73 To date: x s > 14.6 Tevatron unique Usually measure by oscillating exponential; UK has developed new complementary method
B oscillations m f L Separate eigenstates and measure each lifetime 1)B S D S + D S - (CP even) Work continuing in triggering on these difficult hadronic modes (track/vertex/reconstuct) 2)B S J/ (CP even&odd) Different angular distribution for allow separation of CP even and odd states 3)B S J/ (CP odd)
B oscillations Search for B S J/ UK Thesis with Run 1 data Br.(B S J/ )<8.75 x 10 -4 at 90% c.l. (Prelim)
Electroweak Physics Introduce new W and Z simulations to CDF Calculate systematic uncertainty on W mass from higher orders. Conclude (2fb -1 ) –W mass to 30MeV –W width to 40MeV Studying muon and electron identification
SUSY Studying lepton spectra for sensitivity to different SUSY models (eg. gluino pairs) Builds on electron/muon identification Specific search for chargino decays – + 0 2 l – 0 2 0 1 l l 3 leptons often enriched in taus
Higgs Standard searches may exclude but not discover Higgs to 180GeV Higgs search will be highlight of Run II for CDF/D0.
Higgs Largest production mode is gg H bb …. but QCD background enormous We can reconstruct bb with 10-15 GeV. …. Suppose we could reconstruct with 200 MeV
Higgs Look in diffractive mode pp pHp Reconstuct from missing mass of pp system Large theoretical uncertainties exist as discussed at IPPP Durham last week. Theoretical & Experimental clarification required before proceeding to CDF approval or build. CDF 55m

Conclusions (I) Relativity small number of physicists: 15.3 FTE + 14 students High profile on experiment of 500 people Very attractive to students and postdocs Value for money Limited funding is having an impact on recruitment, profile and physics Further to continual maintenance, we need to exploit out investment by producing physics.

UK coordinate/are responsible for: Database, Level 3, Silicon Monitoring, Alignment Understanding Detector: Silicon, Tracking, Muons, Electrons Physics Analysis underway: B physics, Electroweak, Searches Coherent UK hardware/software effort with common data model (JIF) & common physics goals.
