Top Quark

The top quark is an elementary particle with a very large mass. This large mass is responsible for its properties and unique role in high energy particle physics.  The top decays before forming bound states (hadrons), thus providing a unique opportunity to study a bare quark.

After the measurements of the production cross section, top quark mass and charge asymmetry, the focus of our group has moved to the rare processes ttgamma, ttZ, ttH and decays involving flavor changing neutral decays or lepton flavor violation.
