Abstract

We measure the T lepton lifetime with τ+τ- pairs in which one or both of the τ's decays to three charged particles. The data were collected with the CLEO II detector operating at the electron-positron collider CESR at energies on and near the Y (4S). We use displacements of the three-track vertices to determine the τ lifetime. The result is ττ = 289.0 ± 2.8 ± 4.0 fs.

N2 - We measure the T lepton lifetime with τ+τ- pairs in which one or both of the τ's decays to three charged particles. The data were collected with the CLEO II detector operating at the electron-positron collider CESR at energies on and near the Y (4S). We use displacements of the three-track vertices to determine the τ lifetime. The result is ττ = 289.0 ± 2.8 ± 4.0 fs.
