Description

The latest results from the CDF Collaboration on searches for the Standard Model Higgs Boson using up to 10 fb-1 of proton-anti-proton collisions at 1.96 TeV center-of-mass energy. Recent improvements in b-quark identification, online event selection, and background rejection have significantly increased the sensitivity across a wide range of Higgs masses (100 - 200 GeV/c^2). These improved techniques will be discussed along with their application to the current searches. The expected sensitivity at mH = 125 (165) GeV/c^2 is 1.39 (0.67) times the SM cross section respectively with a 95% exclusion region for Higgs masses between 148.8 < m_H < 175.2 GeV/c2 and m_H < 96.9 GeV/c2.
