B-tagging at CMS
a e-mail: Cristina.Ferro@cern.ch
The identification of b jets is a crucial issue to study and characterize various channels like top quark events and many new physics scenarios. Different b-tagging techniques are defined in CMS which benefit from the long life time, high mass and large momentum fraction of the b-hadron produced in b-quark jet. Efficient algorithms have been developed based on the measure of b-hadron secondary vertex or on tracks with a large impact parameter. Data collected in pp collisions at √s = 7 TeV in 2011 are used to estimate both the b-tagging efficiency and the mistag rate from light flavor jets.
