  • This work presents measurements of the parity-violation parameters A{sub c} and A{sub b} made at the Z pole. These measurements include the data taken with the SLD detector at the SLAC Linear Collider (SLC) during the period 1996-98. Heavy flavor events are selected with high efficiency and purity by searching for displaced vertices, identified with the SLD precision CCD vertex detector. Two methods are used for quark/antiquark discrimination: the net charge of the displaced vertex, and tracks… CONTINUE READING
