We report a measurement of the ratio of the bottom quark production cross section in antiproton-proton collisions at roots=630 GeV to 1800 GeV using bottom quarks with transverse momenta greater than 10.75 GeV identified through their semileptonic decays and long lifetimes. The measured ratio sigma(630)/sigma(1800)=0.171+/-.024+/-.012 is in good agreement with next-to-leading order quantum chromodynamics.

Abstract

We report a measurement of the ratio of the bottom quark production cross section in antiproton-proton collisions at roots=630 GeV to 1800 GeV using bottom quarks with transverse momenta greater than 10.75 GeV identified through their semileptonic decays and long lifetimes. The measured ratio sigma(630)/sigma(1800)=0.171+/-.024+/-.012 is in good agreement with next-to-leading order quantum chromodynamics.
