Exclusion of an exotic top quark with -4/3 electric charge using soft lepton tagging

Abstract: We present a measurement of the electric charge of the top quark using pp collisions corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2:7 fb 1 at the CDF II detector. We reconstruct tt events in the lepton þ jets final state. We use soft lepton taggers to determine the flavor of the b jets, which we use to reconstruct the top quark?s electric charge and exclude an exotic top quark with 4=3 charge at 95% confidence level. This is the strongest exclusion of the exotic charge scenario and the first to use soft leptons for this purpose
