Probing top quark electromagnetic dipole moments in single-top-plus-photon

Description
Several studies have established photon radiation in top pair production at the LHC as potential probe of anomalous coupling effects. With the cross section for top pair production and single-top production being of comparable magnitude at the LHC, it appears worthwhile to extend the ttbar-gamma production analysis to photon radiation in single top quark production. 
  In this talk, I will show that single-top-plus-photon production at the LHC can probe the electromagnetic coupling structure of the top quark, and I will present the sensitivity of kinematical distributions on the anomalous dipole moments of the top quark.
