Description

The top-quark properties are of special interest for testing standard model predictions and for indirect searches for new physics due to the large mass of the top-quark, probing very short distances, and its uniquely short life time, eliminating hadronization complexities. We present recent measurements of the top-quark decay branching ratio, constraining the |V_tb| matrix element of the CKM matrix; of the helicity fractions of the W boson in the top-quark pair deacys in the semi-leptonic channel; of the spin correlation of the top-quark pair in the all-leptonic decay channel; and of the top-quark charge in the all-leptonic decay channel. All measurements are using the full CDF Run II sample.
