Description

We present a search for the pair production of first generation scalar leptoquarks (LQ) in data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.4 fb^-1 collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider in ppbar collisions at sqrt(s)=1.96 TeV. In the channel LQ \bar{LQ} --> e nu_e q q', where q, q' are u or d quarks, no significant excess of data over background is observed, and we set a 95% C.L. lower limit of 326 GeV on the leptoquark mass, assuming equal probabilities of leptoquark decays to e q and nu_e q'.
