Abstract [en]

We present a measurement of the helicity of the W boson produced in top quark decays using t (t) over bar decays in the l + jets and dilepton final states selected from a sample of 5.4 fb(-1) of collisions recorded using the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron p (p) over bar collider. We measure the fractions of longitudinal and right-handed W bosons to be f(0) = 0.669 +/- 0.102[+/- 0.078(stat.) +/- 0.065(syst.) +/- and f(+) = 0.023 +/- 0.053[+/- 0.041(stat.) +/- 0.034(syst.)], respectively. This result is consistent at the 98% level with the standard model. A measurement with f(0) fixed to the value from the standard model yields f(+) = 0.010 +/- 0.037[+/- 0.022(stat.) +/- 0.030(syst.).].
