BABAR, the detector for the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric eþe B Factory operating at the Uð4SÞ resonance, was designed to allow comprehensive studies of CP-violation in B-meson decays. Charged particle tracks are measured in a multi-layer silicon vertex tracker surrounded by a cylindrical wire drift chamber. Electromagnetic showers from electrons and photons are(More)
A novel scheme for the focusing of high-energy leptons in future linear colliders was proposed in 2001 [P. Raimondi and A. Seryi, Phys. Rev. Lett. 86, 3779 (2001)]. This scheme has many advantageous properties over previously studied focusing schemes, including being significantly shorter for a given energy and having a significantly better energy(More)
We present measurements of time-dependent CP-violating asymmetries in neutral B decays to several CP eigenstates. The measurement uses a data sample of 23x10(6) Upsilon(4S)-->BbarB decays collected by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric B Factory at SLAC. In this sample, we find events in which one neutral B meson is fully reconstructed in a CP(More)
The BABAR detector, situated at the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric ee collider, has been recording data at energies on and around the Υ (4S) resonance since May 1999. In this paper, we briefly describe the PEP-II B Factory and the BABAR detector. The performance presently achieved by the experiment in the areas of tracking, vertexing, calorimetry and particle(More)
The next collider which will be able to contribute significantly to the comprehension of matter is a high energy linear collider. The luminosity of this collider will have to be of 10cms, which imposes a vertical beam size of 0,7nm. The relative motion between the last two focusing magnets should not exceed a third of the beam size above 4Hz. Ground motion(More)

Ambitious projects such as the design of the future Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) require challenging parameters and technologies. Stabilization of the CLIC particle beam is one of these challenges. Ground motion (GM) is the main source of beam misalignment. Beam dynamics controls are however efficient only at low frequency (<4Hz), due to the sampling of(More)
We report on exclusive decays of B mesons into final states containing charmonium using data collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II storage rings. The charmonium states considered here are J/ψ , ψ(2S), and χc1. Branching fractions for several exclusive final states, a measurement of the decay amplitudes for the B0 → J/ψK∗ decay, and measurements of(More)
Electron-positron annihilation data collected by the BABAR detector near the Υ(4S) resonance are used to study the inclusive decay of B mesons to D±s and D ∗± s mesons, where the D ± s is reconstructed using the decay D±s → φπ . The production fraction of inclusive D (∗)± s and the corresponding momentum spectra have been determined. The exclusive decays B0(More)
