We report on a search for bottom squarks (b̃) produced in pp-bar collisions at s√=1.8 TeV using the DØ detector at Fermilab. Bottom squarks are assumed to be produced in pairs and to decay to the lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) and a b quark with a branching fraction of 100%. The LSP is assumed to be the lightest neutralino and stable. We set limits on the production cross section as a function of b̃ mass and LSP mass.
