Abstract

We report the results of a search for a W-' boson produced in p (p) over bar collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 1.8 TeV using a 106 pb(-1) data sample recorded by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. We observe no significant excess of events above background for a W-' boson decaying to a top and bottom quark pair. In a model where this boson would mediate interactions involving a massive right-handed neutrino (nu(R)) and have standard model strength couplings, we use these data to exclude a W-' boson with mass between 225 and 536 GeV/c(2) at 95% confidence level for M-W(')>M-nuR and between 225 and 566 GeV/c(2) at 95% confidence level for M-W(')<M-nuR.
