At Fermilab's Tevatron accelerator, top quark production most often
occurs through the strong interaction in the form of top anti-top
quark pairs. Less often, a single top quark can be produced through
the electroweak interaction. Single top quark production occurs via
three different production modes with the relative contributions being
sensitive to physics beyond the standard model. This talk will
highlight the current effort in the D0 collaboration to measure the t
channel cross section using 5.4 fb-1 of data.
