Abstract

© Published by the American Physical Society. A measurement of the decay time-dependent CP-violating asymmetry in Bs0→φφ decays is presented, along with measurements of the T-odd triple-product asymmetries. In this decay channel, the CP-violating weak phase arises from the interference between Bs0-B¯s0 mixing and the loop-induced decay amplitude. Using a sample of proton-proton collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0fb-1 collected with the LHCb detector, a signal yield of approximately 4000 Bs0→φφ decays is obtained. The CP-violating phase is measured to be φs=-0.17±0.15(stat)±0.03(syst)rad. The triple-product asymmetries are measured to be AU=-0.003±0.017(stat)±0.006(syst) and AV=-0.017±0.017(stat)±0.006(syst). Results are consistent with the hypothesis of CP conservation.
