top quark

The hunt for the top quark at Fermilab was heating up in 1994 when scientist Mike Albrow and his colleagues on the CDF experiment felt they were close to cornering the last, undiscovered member of the quark family. Albrow tells the story leading to the discovery of the particle by CDF and DZero.

You’ve got your pole masses, and you’ve got your MC masses. DZero recently measured the top quark’s pole mass. Read on to learn the difference.

Bigger is better

One of the first CMS papers for publication using data recorded in 2015 was on the production rate of top quarks. This is a breathtaking achievement.

Scientists on the CDF and DZero experiments at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory have announced that they have found the final predicted way of creating a top quark, completing a picture of this particle nearly 20 years in the making.
