Progress Report to PAC3J-PARC E06 Experiment (TREK)Measurement of T-violating Transverse Muon Polarization (PT) in K+→p0m+n DecaysJ. ImazatoJuly 6, 2007

The PAC would like the proponent to show that the improvement on the sensitivity and systematic uncertainty below 10-4 is attainable via detailed Monte Carlo studies, e.g. acceptance, B-field offset, detector misalignments and the new polarimeter.

- Statistical sensitivity estimate
- Systematic error estimate
- Polarimeter misalignments
- Other systematics

- R&D for the detector upgrade
- Collaboration/Cost/Funding/Beam
- Summary

K+→p0m+ndecay

- PT is T-odd and spurious effects from final state interaction
are small.Non-zero PTis a signature of T violation.

- Standard Model contribution to PT: PT(SM) < 10-7
- Spurious effects from final state interactions : PT(FSI) < 10-5
- There are theoretical models which allow sizeable PT
- without conflicting with other experimental constraints.

Use of upgraded E246 detector

Statistical sensitivity estimate

_

- K+ beam intensity × Run time
- K+ stopping efficiency (estop~0.30according to a MC )
- K+→p0m+n event rate with m+ in the polarimeter ❶
- E246 experience + MC calculation

- m+→e+nn event rate with e+ detected, and
polarization analyzing power : a = AT / PT❷

- MC calculation for the new active polarimeter
In determining the sensitivity,❶and❷are separable.

They are shown next step by step.

- MC calculation for the new active polarimeter

Positron asymmetry measurement

- E246:
- p0- forward (fwd)
- and backward (bwd)
- integral analysis

- E06:
- conservative estimate now by fwd/bwd
- ambitious analysis including left/right
- event-by-event analysis: future option

- PT = AT / a <cosqT>
- a : analyzing power,
- <cosqT> : attenuation factor
- Figure of Merit (FoM) optimization by a MC simulation using a realistic m+ stopper condition
FoM = AT√Ne+

- Eeth = 38 MeV
- cosqeth = 0.34
- a = 0.38
(cf. 0.27 in E246)

- cosqT ≈ cosqp0
- up to finite m+ acceptance qm+

- cosqpth = 0.30
- <cosqp0> = 0.68
- PT = AT/ 0.258

- Optimization of qpth by FoM of
- FoM = <cosqp0> √Npo

- Standard event selection conditions as in E246 :
- 65 < Mgg < 185 MeV/c2
- 3500 < M2TOF < 18,000 (MeV/c2)2
- pm+ <185 MeV/c
- m+ incident into the polarimeter
- qm+p0 < 160o
- M2missing > -15,000 (MeV/c2)2
⇒ Detector acceptanceW(Km3) = 1.14 ×10-2

N(Km3) = N(K+)・estop・Br(Km3)・ W(Km3)

= 3.3 × 109 (total E06 good events)

- MC calculation for 108 events and using PT =AT / 0.258 :
dPT = 6.9 / √N(Km3)

= 1.2 ×10-4

- dPT =1.2×10-4 for the fwd+bwd integral analysis compared with dPT = 1.8×10-4 given in the proposal .
- Significant gain due to qe cut and realistic event selection
(The effect of Ee+ threshold was partially included in the proposal.)

- Significant gain due to qe cut and realistic event selection
- We will attack the event-by-event weighted analysis aiming for dPT = 1.0×10-4 (fwd+bwd) and dPT = 0.8×10-4 (including left+right).

- K1.1-BR beam optics was changed due to B1 position

2005 design

2007 design

- K+ beam intensity @ 9mA p on T1 is now 2.1×106 /s
- Necessary run time is now 1.4×107 s.
( It was 1.0×107 s in the proposal.)

Old errors

- m+ field alignment : dPT < 10-4
- PT analysis free from misalignment

- m+ multiple scattering : dPT < 0
- no longer relevant with the active polarimeter

- decay plane shifts : dPT < 10-4
- correction for PT only with statistical uncertainty

Asub(q0)

- Ddz ~ Ddr ~ 3×10-4 for misalignment determination
- dPT < 1.2×10-4 for PT determination from Asub

- Simulation calculation with:
PT= 0 and dz = dr= 5o = 87 mr

==> dPT= (2±7)×10-4 for 108 events

- Essentially statistical error of PT
- No significant effect beyond the statistical error
- In reality, dz ~ dr ~ 1 mr :
- dPTsystshould be < 10-4

- PT can be deduced regardless of the existence of the polarimeter misalignments, er, ez, dr and dz.
- But, how much is the systematic error induced in this misalignment analysis?

Momentum resolutions

Consistency

MC simulation

- Cancellation in gap integration
- ==> averaging to < 1/10 (<0.02%)
- p0 - fwd/bwd cancellation
==> suppression to < 1/10 (<0.002%)

dPT < 10-4

- Dangerous p+ -> m+n background with a PT component
- Substantial reduction due to the addition of the C0 chamber

- Two rotation angles of qz and qr
- Relation: dPT ~ 0.5 <q>due to PN and PL admixture
- <qr> isfwd/bwd cancelling, but
<qz> isnot fwd/bwd cancelling.

- <qr> isfwd/bwd cancelling, but
- PTwill be corrected for <qz> and <qr>

K1.1

- K1.1BR uses the upstream part of K1.1.
- No budget is allocated for K1.1 in the
- J-PARC budget, although it is one of the
- planned secondary lines in Phase 1.
- We would like to go ahead with the BR
- (700-800 MYen), with a possible Canadian
- contribution to the 0.8 GeV leg.
- Once full beam operation has started
at T1, it will become very difficult to

install the frond end of the channel

- (B1, Q1, Q2, B2). Timely installation
- of K1.1/K1.1BR is absolutely necessary.

K1.1-BR

T1

- Updated cost estimate :
- Detector upgrade etc. 279,710 kYen
- Transfer of the SC spectrrometer 182,000 kYen
- K1.1BR branch construction 50,000 kYen
(These are not very different from the estimates in the proposal.)

- Policy for funding :

- Totally dependent on the K1.1-BR beamline installation and funding of the experiment.
- In the proposal we presented:
20091) Spectrometer setup

2) Field mapping

3) Detector setup

4) Beam tuning

2010-11 5) Engineering run, and

6) Data taking

- We would like to pursue the earliest possible schedule aiming to provide the first particle physics output from the hadron hall.

- A clean search for CP violation via Higgs dynamics.
- Direct CP violation presumably unsuppressed by DI=1/2 rule
PT ~ [e’/e effect]× 20 = 5 x 10-6× 20 ~ 10-4

-- unless enhanced couplings to leptons!

(I. Bigi, CERN Flavor WS, 2007 )

- We have shown with MC studies that E06 can reach at least the statistical sensitivity of dPT =1.2×10-4 in the safe fwd+bwd integral analysis.
- We have established a PT extraction method in the presence of any polarimeter misalignments.
- We have shown that other systematics should be controllable to the level < 10-4.
- We have demonstrated the validity of the proposed upgraded detector elements with necessary test experiments.

- The Canadian and American groups are starting budget requests in their countries. The status of stage-2 approval is very necessary for a successful application. The PAC is requested to consider E06 for the stage-2 approval although there are no funds yet in place.
- An endorsement of the K1.1BR beamline installation for E06 is desirable. The PAC is also asked to make a strong recommendation to the IPNS/J-PARC management to provide a plan for the K1.1BR construction so that the Canadian group will be able to request money for a contribution to this stopped K+ beamline.
