abstract

  • We present the results of a search for second generation leptoquarks S2 using 19.3 pb-1 of data collected at the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) in pp» collisions at s=1.8 TeV during the 1992 93 collider run. We have searched for S2S2» pairs assuming that each leptoquark decays to a muon + quark with a branching ratio. We find two candidate events, consistent with an expected background of 1.11 0.48. We obtain upper limits on (pp» S2S2») 2 as a function of MS2. Using a Monte Carlo prediction for S2S2» pair production, we exclude MS2<131GeV/c2 for =1 and MS2<96GeV/c2 for =0.5 at 95% C.L. © 1995 The American Physical Society.
