Abstract

The τ lifetime has been measured with the OPAL detector at LEP, from analyses using the impact parameters in decays to single charged tracks, and the decay lengths from τ decays to three charged tracks. The 1991 sample of approximately 12300 τ-pair events, of which 70% contain silicon microvertex detector information, has been combined with a re-analysis of the 5100 events recorded during 1990. The two statistically-independent determinations give: {Mathematical expression} The weighted average of these results after combination of the uncorrelated systematic errors is: {Mathematical expression}.

N2 - The τ lifetime has been measured with the OPAL detector at LEP, from analyses using the impact parameters in decays to single charged tracks, and the decay lengths from τ decays to three charged tracks. The 1991 sample of approximately 12300 τ-pair events, of which 70% contain silicon microvertex detector information, has been combined with a re-analysis of the 5100 events recorded during 1990. The two statistically-independent determinations give: {Mathematical expression} The weighted average of these results after combination of the uncorrelated systematic errors is: {Mathematical expression}.
