Two approaches have been investigated to perform luminosity measurements at LHCb by measuring:
  • vertices of beam-gas interaction through the VELO detector (*)
  • event rates of physical channels with a well known and sizeable cross section

Luminosity measurements at LHCb

Motivations:

Relative Luminosity:

  • Correct for systematic effects

Reconstruction and trigger efficiencies

  • Control the stability of the hardware
  • Stability of colliding beam conditions

Absolute luminosity:

  • Measure (and publish) cross section:

- bb inclusive production

- prompt charm

- weak boson production

- constrain Parton Distribution Functions from

EW processes

  • Measure absolute BR of Bs

Two physical channels are investigated to perform an “on-line” luminometerat LHCb due to theoretical accuracy (~ 4%) and sizeable cross sections at s = 14 TeV

Pythia settings

  • The diagrams for the boson V (Z0 and W) production are:
  • PDF CTEQ4Lis used
  • The initial state radiation are switched off
  • Only Z0 neutral current

 interference in matrix elements of Z0/* and * are disabled

  • A polar angle  400 mrad is required to the leptons decaying from bosons

The annual signal yield will be, assuming Lint =2 fb-1

(1 y =107s & = 2x 1032 cm-2 s-1):

Sz = Lintx  2 tot x (Z x B.R.) 2

where:

 2 tot= (genx recx selx trig) 2

(Z x B.R.) 2 2 nb

S1 = Lintx 1tot x ( x BR) 1

where:

 1tot= (genx recx selx trig) 1

( x BR) 1tot= (Z x BR) +(W x BR)  22 nb

The performances of these two physical processes can be compared

Monte Carlo Samples

Single muon coming from W and Z0 decay (single-muon luminometer)

50 kevents of W± ± 

5 kevents of Z0  (with a  not reconstructed)

Z0 +- decay process

(dimuon luminometer)

25 kevents of Z0 

Acceptance: 4 vs 400 mrad

Future work

For the next, I will assume the W  and Z  decays have

the same geometrical acceptance efficiency

In order to evaluate the generation efficiency (gen) in [0, 400] mrad a small pre-production of  4 kevents of Z0 +- have been generated in 4

1 vs 2

slide9
All the production cross section have been evaluated at NNLO (*)

Dimuon selection algorithm

The strategy of the selection algorithm is a compromise between

a high efficiency on the signal and a large rejection of the background sources

  • The signal is represented by a couple of muons (lnL> -8) with:
  • opposite charge
  • low significance (IP/IP) < 5
  • high pT > 10 GeV/c

Background processes

60

These cuts together with the large di-muon invariant mass are able to totally rejects~15x106 of minimum bias and ~8x106 of b inclusive events.

The first two physical channels (Z0 +- & ttW+ W-) are not yet generated: Z0 +- decay could be rejected requiring an IP cut due to c(tau) ~ 100 m, while the ttW+ W- contribution to the signal is at most ~4‰ considering their cross section x B.R.

 8 pb against 2 nb of the signal

Single muon selection algorithm

The signal is given by single muon events coming from

W or Z0 (with a  not reconstructed)

The first three physical channels (W,Z0 +-, ttW+ W-) are not yet generated:

W and Z0 +- decays could be rejected requiring an IP cut due to c(tau) ~ 100 m, while the ttW+ W- contribution to the signal is at most ~ 4‰ considering their cross section x B.R.

 ~70 pb of the BG against ~ 22 nb of the signal

The minimum bias events are not taking into account because ~99% events are rejected with the previous “smooth” selection cuts

To perform an “on-line” luminosity measurement with an uncertainly < 4%, 700 events must be collected during data taking

~ 31/2 hours

~ 45 minutes

Comparison of luminosity measurements

The performances of thesetwo samples can be compared

S1 = Lintx 1tot x ( x BR) 1

with:

1tot= 6.1 %

( x BR) 1tot= 22.13 nb

Sz = Lintx  2 tot x (Z x B.R.) 2

with:

 2 tot= 14.3%

(Z x B.R.) 2 1.86 nb

The final annual yield (Lint= 2 fb-1) is

5.3x105selected & triggered events

 bandwidth of 53 mHz

 Z0 +- event every ~ 20 s

2.7x106selected & triggered events

 bandwidth of 270 mHz

 Z0 or W muon decays every ~ 4 s

L1 Trigger algorithms & results
  • The addition of the new L1 specific algorithm, called low IP muon
  • reaches a L1 efficiency on the Z0  signal up to ~ 85% comparable tothat obtained with other dimuon processes such as theB0s→J/(µµ) 
  • requires a limited bandwidth in order to not upset the L1 streaming. The bandwidth can be computed looking at the muons coming from the bb inclusive events which pass L0&L1 trigger (without any selection cuts)
  •  a negligible value of ~ 50 Hzis obtained

Parton Distribution Function
  • New PDF sets have been recently updated considering the more recent data from H1 and ZEUS at HERA and CDF and D0 at Tevatron:
  • Alekhin(*)
  • CTEQ6(**)
  • MRST2004(***)
  • ZEUS2005

All these PDFs estimate an uncertainty on the Z and W boson production cross sections of  2÷3 %
