Abstract

We report the results of a search for second and third generation leptoquarks using 88 ph(-1) of data recorded by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. Color tripler technipions, which play the role of scalar leptoquarks, are investigated due to their potential production in decays of strongly coupled color octet technirhos. Events with a signature of two heavy flavor jets and missing energy may indicate the decay of a second (third) generation leptoquark to a charm (bottom) quark and a neutrino. As the data are found to be consistent with standard model expectations, mass limits are determined.
