Measurements of direct CP asymmetries in B → X_sγ decays using sum of exclusive decays


We measure the direct CP violation asymmetry, A_(CP), in B→X_sγ and the isospin difference of the asymmetry, ΔA_(CP), using 429  fb^(−1) of data collected at Υ(4S) resonance with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy e^+e^− storage rings operating at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. B mesons are reconstructed from ten charged B final states and six neutral B final states. We find A_(CP)=+(1.7±1.9±1.0)%, which is in agreement with the Standard Model prediction and provides an improvement on the world average. Moreover, we report the first measurement of the difference between A_(CP) for charged and neutral decay modes, ΔA_(CP)=+(5.0±3.9±1.5)%. Using the value of ΔA_(CP), we also provide 68% and 90% confidence intervals on the imaginary part of the ratio of the Wilson coefficients corresponding to the chromomagnetic dipole and the electromagnetic dipole transitions.
