Abstract

The decays B0s→D(*)+sD(*)−s are reconstructed in a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 6.8  fb−1 collected by the CDF II detector at the Tevatron pp¯ collider. All decay modes are observed with a significance of more than 10σ, and we measure the B0s production rate times B0s→D(*)+sD(*)−s branching ratios relative to the normalization mode B0→D+sD−to be 0.183±0.021±0.017 for B0s→D+sD−s, 0.424±0.046±0.035 for B0s→D*±sD∓s, 0.654±0.072±0.065 for B0s→D*+sD*−s, and 1.261±0.095±0.112 for the inclusive decay B0s→D(*)+sD(*)−s, where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic. These results are the most precise single measurements to date and provide important constraints for indirect searches for nonstandard model physics in B0smixing.
