Direct top-quark decay width measurement in the tt¯ lepton+jets channel at √s=8TeV with the ATLAS experiment
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
This paper presents a direct measurement of the decay width of the top quark using tt¯ events in the lepton+jets final state. The data sample was collected by the ATLAS detector at the LHC in proton–proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 20.2 fb- 1. The decay width of the top quark is measured using a template fit to distributions of kinematic observables associated with the hadronically and semileptonically decaying top quarks. The result, Γt=1.76±0.33(stat.)-0.68+0.79(syst.)GeV for a top-quark mass of 172.5 GeV, is consistent with the prediction of the Standard Model. © 2018, CERN for the benefit of the ATLAS collaboration.
