T meson

T mesons are hypothetical mesons composed of a top quark quark and either an up (T0), down (T+), strange (T+
) or charm antiquark (T0
).[1] Because of the top quark's short lifetime, T mesons are not expected to be found in nature. The combination of a top quark and top antiquark is not a T meson, but rather toponium. Each T meson has an antiparticle that is composed of a top antiquark and an up (T0), down (T), strange (T
) or charm quark (T0
) respectively.
