Search for Charged Higgs Boson Decays of the Top Quark using Hadronic Decays of the Tau Lepton Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • This Letter describes a direct search for charged Higgs boson production in proton-antiproton collisions at sqrt(s)=1.8 TeV recorded by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. Two-Higgs-doublet extensions to the standard model predict the existence of charged Higgs bosons. In such models, the branching fraction for top quarks B(t → H b → tau nu b) can be large. This search uses the hadronic decays of the tau lepton in this channel to significantly extend previous limits on charged Higgs production. © 1997 The American Physical Society.
