Description

We present measurements of production cross sections of single top quarks in ppbar collisions at sqrt(s) = 1.96 TeV using data collected with the CDF and D0 experiments with integrated luminosities of up to 9.7 fb-1. Measurements of the total production cross section and of the t-channel cross section are presented, as well as searches for the s-channel production process. These measurements are also used to extract the Vtb element of the CKM mixing matrix
