  • Content Description: The Tevatron experiments have measured top quark properties in addition to the top quark mass and pair production cross section. These measurements are based on 110 pb{sup -1} of p{anti p} collisions at {radical}s=1.8 TeV recorded by CDF and 125 pb{sup -1} of data recorded by D0 during the years 1992-95. We describe two separate techniques which exploit the top data samples to exclude large branching fractions of the top quark to a charged Higgs boson. we also determine the fraction of longitudinal W bosons produced in top quark decays to be 0.55{+-}0.34, compared to the standard model prediction of 0.71. Other top branching fraction measurements, kinematic studies, and searches for rare decays are summarized.
