Abstract

We present a new measurement of the inclusive and differential production cross sections of J/ψ mesons and b hadrons in proton-antiproton collisions at √s = 1960 GeV. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 39.7 pb-1 collected by the CDF run II detector. We find the integrated cross section for inclusive J/ψ production for all transverse momenta from 0 to 20 GeV/c in the rapidity range |y| < 0.6 to be 4.08 ± 0.02(Stat)-0.33+0.36(syst) μb. We separate the fraction of J/ψ events from the decay of the long-lived b hadrons using the lifetime distribution in all events with pT(J/ψ) > 1.25 GeV/c. We find the total cross section for b hadrons, including both hadrons and antihadrons, decaying to J/ψ with transverse momenta greater than 1.25 GeV/c in the rapidity range |y(J/ψ)| < 0.6 is 0.330 ± 0.005(stat) -0.033+0.036(syst) μb. Using a Monte Carlo simulation of the decay kinematics of b hadrons to all final states containing a J/ψ, we extract the first measurement of the total single b-hadron cross section down to zero transverse momentum at √s = 1960 GeV. We find the total single b-hadron cross section integrated over all transverse momenta for b hadrons in the rapidity range |y| < 0.6 to be 17.6 ± 0.4(stat) -2.3+2.5(syst) μb. © 2005 The American Physical Society.
