Search for the lepton-flavour violating decay D0→e±μ∓

M. Borisyak, LHCb c.

A search for the lepton-flavour violating decay D0 → e ±µ ∓ is made with a dataset corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb−1 of proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 7 TeV and 8 TeV, collected by the LHCb experiment. Candidate D0 mesons are selected using the decay D∗+ → D0π + and the D0 → e ±µ ∓ branching fraction is measured using the decay mode D0 → K−π + as a normalisation channel. No significant excess of D0 → e ±µ ∓ candidates over the expected background is seen, and a limit is set on the branching fraction, B(D0 → e ±µ ∓) < 1.3×10−8 , at 90% confidence level. This is an order of magnitude lower than the previous limit and it further constrains the parameter space in some leptoquark models and in supersymmetric models with R-parity violation.
