We report a measurement of the inclusive semileptonic branching fraction of the B-s meson using data collected with the BABAR detector in the center-of-mass energy region above the Y(4S) resonance. We use the inclusive yield of phi mesons and the phi yield in association with a high-momentum lepton to perform a simultaneous measurement of the semileptonic branching fraction and the production rate of B-s mesons relative to all B mesons as a function of center-of-mass energy. The inclusive semileptonic branching fraction of the B-s meson is determined to be B(B-s -> l nu X) = 9.5(-2.0)(+2.5)(stat)(-1.9)(+1.1)(syst)% where l indicates the average of e and mu.

Abstract

We report a measurement of the inclusive semileptonic branching fraction of the B-s meson using data collected with the BABAR detector in the center-of-mass energy region above the Y(4S) resonance. We use the inclusive yield of phi mesons and the phi yield in association with a high-momentum lepton to perform a simultaneous measurement of the semileptonic branching fraction and the production rate of B-s mesons relative to all B mesons as a function of center-of-mass energy. The inclusive semileptonic branching fraction of the B-s meson is determined to be B(B-s -> l nu X) = 9.5(-2.0)(+2.5)(stat)(-1.9)(+1.1)(syst)% where l indicates the average of e and mu.
