A search for excited states of the $B^{\pm}_c$ meson is performed using 4.9 fb$^{-1}$ of 7 TeV and 19.2 fb$^{-1}$ of 8 TeV $pp$ collision data collected by the ATLAS experiment at the LHC. A new state is observed through its hadronic transition to the ground state, with the latter detected in the decay $B_c^{\pm} \to J/\psi \pi^{\pm}$. The state appears in the $m(B_c^{\pm}\pi^{+}\pi^{-})-m(B_c^{\pm})-2m(\pi^{\pm})$ mass difference distribution with a significance of 5.2 standard deviations. The mass of the observed state is $6842 \pm 4 \pm 5$~MeV, where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic. The mass and decay of this state are consistent with expectations for the second $S\mbox{-}$wave state of the $B^{\pm}_c$ meson, $B^{\pm}_c(2S)$.

A search for excited states of the Bc± meson is performed using 4.9fb-1 of 7 TeV and 19.2fb-1 of 8 TeV pp collision data collected by the ATLAS experiment at the LHC. A new state is observed through its hadronic transition to the ground state, with the latter detected in the decay Bc±J/ψπ±. The state appears in the m(Bc±π+π-)-m(Bc±)-2m(π±) mass difference distribution with a significance of 5.2 standard deviations. The mass of the observed state is 6842±4±5MeV, where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic. The mass and decay of this state are consistent with expectations for the second S-wave state of the Bc± meson, Bc±(2S).
