    We report on a search for supersyrnmetric squark and gluino particles in a data sample of 19 pb-1 of pp̄ collisions at √s= 1.8 TeV recorded by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. We searched for events containing jets plus appreciable missing transverse energy (ET). This signature is indicative of pair production and subsequent decay of squarks and/or gluinos. After all cuts, there are 18 events with ET>60 GeV and three jets, and 6 events with ET>60 GeV and four jets. These numbers of events are consistent with estimates of standard model processes plus detector-induced background sources. The analysis yields lower limits on gluino and squark masses, based on the predictions from the mnimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model. At the 95% confidence level, we find gluino and squark mass limits up to 216 GeV/c2, assuming equal gluino and squark masses, and gluino mass limits up to 173 GeV/c2, independent of squark mass. © 1997 The American Physical Society.
