The time of hadronisation of a particle is typically : $\tau_{hadronization}=\frac{1}{\Lambda_{QCD}}$.

What is the good choice for QCD scale ($\Lambda_{QCD}$) to use when trying to estimate the time of hadronization of a $b$ quark ?

For example, if we use $240 MeV$, we see that it would not work at all for describing figure 4a of


Indeed, we would have mean of

$\frac{p_{T B hadron}}{p_{T b quark}}=1-\frac{0.240}{4}=0.94$

while the mean is much lower than that.
