Top mesons

Theoretical physics


The possibility of formation for a bound state of a \(t\) quark and a lighter one is investigated using potential model predictions and heavy quark effective theory approach. Resulting estimates for the 1S–2S splitting of the energy levels are compared to the total top decay width \(\Gamma_t\). As for the case of toponium, our conclusions show that the probability of formation for T–mesons is negligibly small due to the high top mass value.
