B Physics at SLD: B+ and B0d Lifetimes, B0s Mixing and Search for b --> s g Decays


We report new preliminary $B$ Physics results obtained with 300,000 hadronic $Z^0$ decays collected by the SLD experiment at the SLC between 1993 and 1997. Three analyses are presented: a measurement of $\bu$ and $\bd$ lifetimes, a study of the time dependence of $\bsmix$ mixing, and a search for decays of the type $\bsg$. All analyses benefit from the small and stable interaction point and the excellent resolution and efficiency provided by the pixel-based CCD Vertex Detector. The $\bsg$ analysis also exploits the particle identification capabilities of the Cherenkov Ring Imaging Detector.

Compressed PostScript



The PDF version of this document was distilled from a PostScript file most likely created from LaTeX source which used Type 3 fonts. The resultant PDF may be unreadable on the screen at the default viewing magnification (fonts will appear bitmapped, jagged), though the type will be legible at higher magnifications.

Despite the cosmetic problems resulting from the use Type 3 fonts in the original source file, such PDF files print without problems; likewise, the onscreen text is searchable and selectable.
