Abstract: A search for the rare decay $ B^0\to J/ \psi\phi$ is performed using $ pp$ collision data collected with the LHCb dete-ctor at centre-of-mass energies of 7, 8 and 13 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 9 fb−1. No significant signal of the decay is observed and an upper limit of $ 1.1 \times 10^{-7}$ at 90% confidence level is set on the branching fraction.

    I.   INTRODUCTION
    • The $ {{B^0}} {\rightarrow} {{{J/\psi}}} {{K^+}} {{K^-}} $ decay was first observed by the LHCb experiment with a branching fraction of $ (2.51\pm 0.35\pm0.19)\times10^{-6} $ [1]. It proceeds primarily through the Cabibbo-suppressed $ \bar{b}{\rightarrow}\bar{c}c\bar{d} $ transition. The $ {{K^+}} {{K^-}} $ pair can come either directly from the $ {{B^0}}$ decay via an $ s\bar{s} $ pair created in the vacuum, or from the decay of intermediate states that contain both $ d\bar{d} $ and $ s\bar{s} $ components, such as the $ a_0(980) $ resonance. There is a potential contribution from the $ \phi $ meson as an intermediate state. The decay $ {{B^0}} {\rightarrow} {{{J/\psi}}} \phi $ is suppressed by the Okubo-Zweig-Iizuka (OZI) rule that forbids disconnected quark diagrams [2-4]. The size of this contribution and the exact mechanism to produce the $ \phi $ meson in this process are of particular theoretical interest [5-7]. Under the assumption that the dominant contribution is via a small $ d\bar{d} $ component in the $ \phi $ wave-function, arising from $ \omega-\phi $ mixing (Fig. 1(a)), the branching fraction of the $ {{B^0}} {\rightarrow} {{{J/\psi}}} \phi $ decay is predicted to be of the order of $ 10^{-7} $ [5]. Contributions to $ {{B^0}} {\rightarrow} {{{J/\psi}}} \phi $ decays from the OZI-suppressed tri-gluon fusion (Fig. 1(b)), photoproduction and final-state rescattering are estimated to be at least one order of magnitude lower [7]. Experimental studies of the decay $ {{B^0}} {\rightarrow} {{{J/\psi}}} \phi $ could provide important information about the dynamics of OZI-suppressed decays.

      Figure 1.  Feynman diagrams for the decay $ B^0 \to J/ \psi\phi$ via (a) $\omega-\phi$ mixing and (b) tri-gluon fusion.

      No significant signal of $ {{B^0}} {\rightarrow} {{{J/\psi}}} \phi $ decay has been observed in previous searches by several experiments. Upper limits on the branching fraction of the decay have been set by BaBar [8], Belle [9] and LHCb [1]. The LHCb limit was obtained using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1 $ {{\rm{fb}}^{-1}} $ of $ pp$ collision data, collected at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 $ {\rm{TeV}}$. This paper presents an update on the search for $ {{B^0}} {\rightarrow} {{{J/\psi}}} \phi $ decays using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 9 $ {{\rm{fb}}^{-1}} $, including 3 $ {{\rm{fb}}^{-1}} $ collected at 7 and 8 $ {\rm{TeV}}$, denoted as Run 1, and 6 $ {{\rm{fb}}^{-1}} $ collected at 13 $ {\rm{TeV}}$, denoted as Run 2.

      The LHCb measurement in Ref. [1] is obtained from an amplitude analysis of $ {{B^0}} {\rightarrow} {{{J/\psi}}} {{K^+}} {{K^-}} $ decays over a wide $ m({{K^+}} {{K^-}} ) $ range from the $ {{K^+}} {{K^-}} $ mass threshold to 2200 $ {\rm{MeV}}/c^2$. This paper focuses on the $ \phi(1020) $ region, with the $ {{K^+}} K^+ $ mass in the range 1000–1050 $ {\rm{MeV}}/c^2$, and on studies of the $ {{{J/\psi}}} {{K^+}} {{K^-}} $ and $ {{K^+}} {{K^-}} $ mass distributions, to distinguish the $ {{B^0}} {\rightarrow} {{{J/\psi}}} \phi $ signal from the non-resonant decay $ {{B^0}} {\rightarrow} {{{J/\psi}}} {{K^+}} {{K^-}} $ and background contaminations. The abundant decay $ {B^0_s} {\rightarrow} {{{J/\psi}}} \phi $ is used as the normalisation channel. The choice of mass fits over a full amplitude analysis is motivated by several considerations. The sharp $ \phi $ mass peak provides a clear signal characteristic and the lineshape can be very well determined using the copious $ {B^0_s} {\rightarrow} {{{J/\psi}}} \phi $ decays. On the other hand, interference of the S-wave (either $ a_0(980)/f_0 $(980) or non-resonant) and P-wave amplitudes vanishes in the $ m({{K^+}} {{K^-}} ) $ spectrum, up to negligible angular acceptance effects, after integrating over the angular variables. Furthermore, significant correlations observed between $ m({{{J/\psi}}} {{K^+}} {{K^-}} ) $, $ m({{K^+}} {{K^-}} ) $ and angular variables make it challenging to describe the mass-dependent angular distributions of both signal and background, which are required for an amplitude analysis. Finally, the power of the amplitude analysis in discriminating the signal from the non-$ \phi $ contribution and background is reduced by the large number of parameters that need to be determined in the fit. In addition, a good understanding of the contamination from $ {{{B^0_s} }{\rightarrow} {{{{J/\psi}}} {{K^+}} {{K^-}} }} $ decays in the $ {{B^0}} $ mass-region is essential in the search for $ {{B^0}} {\rightarrow} {{{J/\psi}}} \phi $.

    II.   DETECTOR AND SIMULATION
    • The LHCb detector [10, 11] is a single-arm forward spectrometer covering the pseudorapidity range $ 2<\eta <5 $, designed for the study of particles containing b or c quarks. The detector includes a high-precision tracking system consisting of a silicon-strip vertex detector surrounding the $ pp $ interaction region, a large-area silicon-strip detector located upstream of a dipole magnet with a bending power of about $ 4\,{\rm{Tm}} $, and three stations of silicon-strip detectors and straw drift tubes placed downstream of the magnet. The tracking system provides a measurement of the momentum, p, of charged particles with a relative uncertainty that varies from 0.5% at low momentum to 1.0% at 200 $ {\rm{GeV}}/c$. The minimum distance of a track to a primary vertex (PV), the impact parameter (IP), is measured with a resolution of $(15+ 29/{p_{\rm{T}}} )\;{\rm{\mu m}}$, where $ {p_{\rm{T}}}$ is the component of the momentum transverse to the beam, in $ {\rm{GeV}}/c$. Different types of charged hadrons are distinguished using information from two ring-imaging Cherenkov detectors. Photons, electrons and hadrons are identified by a calorimeter system consisting of scintillating-pad and preshower detectors, an electromagnetic and a hadronic calorimeter. Muons are identified by a system composed of alternating layers of iron and multiwire proportional chambers.

      Samples of simulated decays are used to optimise the signal candidate selection and derive the efficiency of selection. In the simulation, $ pp$ collisions are generated using PYTHIA [12, 13] with a specific LHCb configuration [14]. Decays of unstable particles are described by EVTGEN [15], in which final-state radiation is generated using PHOTOS [16]. The interaction of the generated particles with the detector, and its response, are implemented using the GEANT4 toolkit [17, 18] as described in Ref. [19].

    III.   CANDIDATE SELECTION
    • The online event selection is performed by a trigger, which consists of a hardware stage, based on information from the calorimeter and muon systems, followed by a software stage, which applies a full event reconstruction. An inclusive approach for the hardware trigger is used to maximise the available data sample, as described in Ref. [20]. Since the centre-of-mass energies and trigger thresholds are different for the Run 1 and Run 2 data-taking, the offline selection is performed separately for the two periods, following the procedure described below. The resulting data samples for the two periods are treated separately in the subsequent analysis procedure.

      The offline selection comprises two stages. First, a loose selection is used to reconstruct both $ {{B^0}} {\rightarrow} {{{J/\psi}}} \phi $ and $ {B^0_s} {\rightarrow} {{{J/\psi}}} \phi $ candidates in the same way, given their similar kinematics. Two oppositely charged muon candidates with $ {p_{\rm{T}}} > 500 \;{{\rm{MeV}}/c} $ are combined to form a $ {{{J/\psi}}} $ candidate. The muon pair is required to have a common vertex and an invariant mass, $ m(\mu^+\mu^-) $, in the range 3020–3170 $ {\rm{MeV}}/c^2$. A pair of oppositely charged kaon candidates identified by the Cherenkov detectors is combined to form a $ \phi $ candidate. The $ {{K^+}} {{K^-}} $ pair is required to have an invariant mass, $ m({{K^+}} {{K^-}} ) $, in the range 1000–1050 $ {\rm{MeV}}/c^2$. The $ {{{J/\psi}}} $ and $ \phi $ candidates are combined to form a $ B^{0}_{(s)} $
