Search for W′→eν and W′→μν in p¯p Collisions at s=1.8 TeV Academic Article uri icon


  • The W is a charged, heavy, vector boson predicted to exist by some extensions of the standard model. We have searched for the processes We and W for MW>100 GeV/c2, in pp collisions at s=1.8 TeV, using data taken with the Collider Detector at Fermilab. The nonobservation of these processes leads to a lower limit of 520 GeV/c2 (95% confidence level) on the mass of the W, assuming standard-strength couplings to three fermion generations. © 1991 The American Physical Society.
