A measurement of |Vcb| from b/bar^0 -> l- nubar_l EUROPEAN ORGANIZATION FOR NUCLEAR RESEARCH CERN-PPE/95-094 29 June 1995 A Measurement of jV cb j from B 0 ! D �+ ` � � ` The ALEPH Collaboration Abstract From approximately 3 million hadronic decays of Z bosons recorded with the aleph detector at lep, a sample of 410� 32 B 0 ! D �+ ` � � ` candidates is selected, where ` is either an electron or a muon. The di�erential decay rate d�(B 0 ! D �+ ` � � ` )=d! from this sample is �tted, yielding a value for the product of the CKM matrix element jV cb j and the normalisation of the decay form factor at the point of zero recoil of the D �+ meson F(! = 1)jV cb j = (31:4�2:3 stat �2:5 syst )�10 �3 . A value for jV cb j is extracted using theoretical calculations of the form factor normalisation, with the result jV cb j = (34:5� 2:5 stat � 2:7 syst � 1:5 theory )� 10 �3 . From the integrated spectrum, the measured branching fraction is Br(B 0 ! D �+ ` � � ` ) = (5:18� 0:30 stat � 0:62 syst )%.
