Observation of a new excited D+s meson in B0 to D−D+K+π− decays
Using pppp collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.4fb−15.4fb−1 collected with the LHCb detector at a center-of-mass energy of 13TeV13TeV, the B0→D−D+K+π−B0→D−D+K+π− decay is studied. A new excited D+sDs+ meson is observed decaying into the D+K+π−D+K+π− final state with large statistical significance. The pole mass and width, and the spin-parity of the new state are measured with an amplitude analysis to be mR=2591±6±7MeVmR=2591±6±7MeV, ΓR=89±16±12MeVΓR=89±16±12MeV and JP=0−JP=0−, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic. Fit fractions for all components in the amplitude analysis are also reported. The new resonance, denoted as Ds0(2590)+Ds0(2590)+, is a strong candidate to be the Ds(21S0)+Ds(21S0)+ state, the radial excitation of the pseudoscalar ground-state D+sDs+ meson.
