A search for the pair production of scalar top quarks, over(t, ̃), has been performed in 360 pb-1 of data from p over(p, ̄) collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV, collected by the DØ detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. The over(t, ̃) decay mode considered is over(t, ̃) → c over(χ, ̃)10, where over(χ, ̃)10 is the lightest supersymmetric particle. The topology analyzed therefore consists of a pair of acoplanar heavy-flavor jets with missing transverse energy. The data and standard model expectation are in agreement, and a 95% C.L. exclusion domain in the (mover(t, ̃), mover(χ, ̃)10) plane has been determined, extending the domain excluded by previous experiments. © 2006 Elsevier B.V.
