    Abstract:
    We measure the branching fraction of the top quark to longitudinally and right-handed polarized W bosons, F0 and F+, using approximately 200pb-1 of p̄p collisions collected by the CDF II detector. We analyze two quantities sensitive to the W helicity: the invariant mass of the charged lepton and the bottom-quark jet in the decay t→Wb→ νb (where =e or μ), and the transverse momentum of the charged lepton. Constrained fits yield F0=0.74-0.34+0.22, and F+<0.27 at the 95% confidence level. These measurements are consistent with the standard model predictions. © 2006 The American Physical Society.
