Description

We present measurements of the single top production cross in ppbar collisions at sqrt(s)=1.96 TeV using data collected with the D0 detector and corresponding to up to 5.4 fb-1 of integrated luminosity. We obtain both measurements of the inclusive production cross section as well measurements for the separate s- and t-channel production processes. These measurements are used to set constraints on the |Vtb| element of the CKM matrix. We also investigate for possible CP violation in the production of single top quarks and for the existence of possible resonances in the s-channel.
