Abstract
We search for decays of the type B(s)0→h+h′- (where h,h′=K or π) in 180  pb-1 of p̅ p collisions collected at the Tevatron by the upgraded Collider Detector at Fermilab. We report the first observation of the new mode Bs0→K+K- with a yield of 236±32 events, corresponding to (fs/fd)×B(Bs0→K+K-)/B(B0→K+π-)=0.46±0.08(stat)±0.07(syst), where fs/fd is the ratio of production fractions of Bs0 and B0. We find results in agreement with world averages for the B0 modes, and set the following new limits at 90% C.L.: B(Bs0→K-π+)<5.6×10-6 and B(Bs0→π+π-)<1.7×10-6.
