Title: Measurement of the Single Top Quark Production Cross Section and | V t b | in Events with One Charged Lepton, Large Missing Transverse Energy, and Jets at CDF

Abstract

We report a measurement of single top quark production in proton-antiproton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of s = 1.96 TeV using a data set corresponding to 7.5 fb - 1 of integrated luminosity collected by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. We select events consistent with the single top quark decay process t W b ν b by requiring the presence of an electron or muon, a large imbalance of transverse momentum indicating the presence of a neutrino, and two or three jets including at least one originating from a bottom quark. An artificial neural network is used to discriminate the signal from backgrounds. We measure a single top quark production cross section of 3.0 4 - 0.53 + more » 0.57 pb and set a lower limit on the magnitude of the coupling between the top quark and bottom quark | V t b | > 0.78 at the 95% credibility level.« less

abstractNote = {We report a measurement of single top quark production in proton-antiproton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of s=1.96 TeV using a data set corresponding to 7.5 fb-1 of integrated luminosity collected by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. We select events consistent with the single top quark decay process t→Wb→ℓνb by requiring the presence of an electron or muon, a large imbalance of transverse momentum indicating the presence of a neutrino, and two or three jets including at least one originating from a bottom quark. An artificial neural network is used to discriminate the signal from backgrounds. We measure a single top quark production cross section of 3.04-0.53+0.57 pb and set a lower limit on the magnitude of the coupling between the top quark and bottom quark |Vtb|>0.78 at the 95% credibility level.},
