Description

Using a large data sample of p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV recorded by the CDF and D0 detectors operating at Fermilab Tevatron, the orbitally excited B mesons B{sub 1} and B*{sub 2} are observed directly as two separate states in fully reconstructed decays to B{sup (*)}{pi}. The masses and the mass differences between the states are presented. In the charm system, the orbitally excited D mesons D{sub 1} and D*{sub 2} are observed in fully reconstructed decays to D{sup (*)}{pi}. Measurements of the product branching rates of semileptonic decays B {yields} {bar D}**{mu}{sup +}{nu}{sub {mu}}X and their ... continued below

They also present the observation of the semileptonic decays B{sub s} {yields} {mu}{nu}D**{sub s} where the excited D**{sub s} states are reconstructed in the mode D**{sub s} {yields} D*K{sub S}{sup 0}.
