Search for the charged Higgs boson in the decays of top quark pairs in the [formula presented] and [formula presented] channels at [formula presented] TeV

Published

Journal Article

Top quark production offers the unique opportunity to search for a charged Higgs boson (Formula presented) as the contribution from (Formula presented) can be large in extensions of the standard model. We use results from a search for top quark pair production by the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) in the (Formula presented) and (Formula presented) signatures to set an upper limit on the branching ratio of (Formula presented) in 106 (Formula presented) of data. The upper limit is in the range 0.5 to 0.6 at 95% C.L. for (Formula presented) masses in the range 60 to 160 GeV, assuming the branching ratio for (Formula presented) is 100%. The (Formula presented) lepton is detected through its 1-prong and 3-prong hadronic decays. © 2000 The American Physical Society.
