Search for T violation in charm meson decays
Using data from the FOCUS (E831) experiment, we have searched for T violation in charm meson decays using the four-body decay channels D0→K−K+π−π+, D+→KS0K+π−π+, and Ds+→KS0K+π−π+. The T violation asymmetry is obtained using triple-product correlations and assuming the validity of the CPT theorem. We find the asymmetry values to be ATviol(D0)=0.010±0.057(stat.)±0.037(syst.), ATviol(D+)=0.023±0.062(stat.)±0.022(syst.), and ATviol(Ds+)=−0.036±0.067(stat.)±0.023(syst.). Each measurement is consistent with no T violation. New measurements of the CP asymmetries for some of these decay modes are also presented.
