Search for excited quarks in pp¯ collisions at √s =1.8 TeV Academic Article uri icon


  • If quarks are composite particles then excited states are expected. We have searched in pp» collisions for excited quarks (q*) which decay to common quarks by emitting a W boson (q*qW) or a photon (q*q). The simplest model of excited quarks has been excluded for mass M*<540 GeV/c2 at 95% confidence level. © 1994 The American Physical Society.
