We study D0D̅0 pairs produced in e+e− collisions at √ s = 3.773 GeVusing a data sample of 2.92 fb−1 collected with the BESIII detector. We measuredthe asymmetry ACPKπ of the branching fractions of D → K−π+ in CP-odd and CP-even eigenstates to be (12.7 ± 1.3 ± 0.7) × 10−2. ACPKπ can be used to extract the strong phase difference δKπ between the doubly Cabibbo-suppressed process D̅0 → K−π+ and the Cabibbo-favored process D0 → K−π+. Using world-average values of external parameters, we obtain cos δKπ = 1.02 ±0.11 ±0.06 ±0.01. Here, the first and second uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively, while the third uncertainty arises from the external parameters. This is the most precise measurement of δKπ to date.
