Search for nucleon decay into charged antilepton plus meson in 0.316  megaton·years exposure of the Super-Kamiokande water Cherenkov detector

Search for nucleon decay into charged antilepton plus meson in 0.316  megaton·years exposure... We have searched for proton decays into a charged antilepton (e+, μ+) plus a meson (η, ρ0, ω) and for neutron decays into a charged antilepton (e+, μ+) plus a meson (π-, ρ-) using Super-Kamiokande I-IV data, corresponding to 0.316  megaton·years of exposure. This measurement updates the previous published result by using 2.26 times more data and improved analysis methods. No significant evidence for nucleon decay is observed and lower limits on the partial lifetime of the nucleon are obtained. The limits range from 3×1031 to 1×1034  years at 90% confidence level, depending on the decay mode. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review D American Physical Society (APS)

Search for nucleon decay into charged antilepton plus meson in 0.316  megaton·years exposure of the Super-Kamiokande water Cherenkov detector

Abstract

We have searched for proton decays into a charged antilepton (e+, μ+) plus a meson (η, ρ0, ω) and for neutron decays into a charged antilepton (e+, μ+) plus a meson (π-, ρ-) using Super-Kamiokande I-IV data, corresponding to 0.316  megaton·years of exposure. This measurement updates the previous published result by using 2.26 times more data and improved analysis methods. No significant evidence for nucleon decay is observed and lower limits on the partial lifetime of the nucleon are obtained. The limits range from 3×1031 to 1×1034  years at 90% confidence level, depending on the decay mode.
