Bertram, I.A. and Abazov, V.M. and Abbott, B. and Fox, H. (2004) Search for new particles in the two-jet decay channel with the DØ detector. Physical Review D, 69 (11). pp. 11101-11105. ISSN 1550-7998Full text not available from this repository.
We present the results of a search for the production of new particles decaying into two jets in p̅ p collisions at sqrt[s]=1.8 TeV, using the DØ 1992–1995 data set corresponding to 109 pb-1. We exclude at the 95% confidence level the production of excited quarks (q*) with masses below 775 GeV/c2, the most restrictive limit to date. We also exclude standard-model-like W′ (Z′) bosons with masses between 300 and 800 GeV/c2 (400 and 640 GeV/c2). A W′ boson with mass <786 GeV/c2 has been excluded by previous measurements, and our lower limit is therefore the most stringent to date.
