Heavy flavours Heavy flavours


Manuel Kambeitz


We report recent studies on heavy flavor production in 1.96 TeV proton-antiproton collisions collected by the CDF detector. These include a new measurement of the spin-alignment of Y mesons using dimuon decays in 6.7 fb^-1 of data. This measurement is the first to report the full angular distributions of dimuons as functions of Y transverse momentum in both the Collins–Soper and s–channel helicity frames. This is also the first measurement of spin alignment of Υ(3S) mesons.
