Title One Loop QCD Mass effects in the production of polarized bottom and top quarks
Abstract The analytic expressions for the production cross sections of polarized bottom and top quarks in e+ e- annihilation are explicitly derived at the one-loop order of strong interactions. Chirality-violating mass effects will reduce the longitudinal spin polarization for the light quark pairs by an amount of 3%, when one properly considers the massless limit for the final quarks. Numerical estimates of longitudinal spin polarization effects in the processes e+ e- -> bb(g) and e+ e- -> tt(g) are presented.
