A high statistics sample of photoproduced charm particles from the FOCUS (E831) experiment at Fermilab has been used to search for CP violation in the Cabibbo suppressed decay modes D+ to K-K+pi+, D0 to K-K+ and D0 to pi-pi+. We have measured the following CP asymmetry parameters: A_CP(K-K+pi+) = +0.006 +/- 0.011 +/- 0.005, A_CP(K-K+) = -0.001 +/- 0.022 +/- 0.015 and A_CP(pi-pi+) = +0.048 +/- 0.039 +/- 0.025 where the first error is statistical and the second error is systematic. These asymmetries are consistent with zero with smaller errors than previous measurements.

All N-values corrected by efficiencies obtained from Monte-Carlo simulations. The CP asymmetry can be written as: ACP=(eta(D)-eta(DBAR))/(eta(D)+eta(DBAR)), where eta(Q=D+ KK)=(N(Q=D+ KK)/N(Q=D+ K) - N(Q=D- KK)/N(Q=D- K))/(N(Q=D+ KK)/N(Q=D+ K) + N(Q=D- KK)/N(Q=D- K)).

All N-values corrected by efficiencies obtained from Monte-Carlo simulations. The CP asymmetry can be written as: ACP=(eta(D)-eta(DBAR))/(eta(D)+eta(DBAR)), where eta(Q=D0 KK)=(N(Q=D0 KK)/N(Q=D0 K) - N(Q=DBAR0 KK)/N(Q=DBAR0 K))/(N(Q=D0 KK)/N(Q=D0 K) + N(Q=DBAR0 KK)/N(Q=DBAR0 K)).

All N-values corrected by efficiencies obtained from Monte-Carlo simulations. The CP asymmetry can be written as: ACP=(eta(D)-eta(DBAR))/(eta(D)+eta(DBAR)), where eta(Q=D0 PIPI)=(N(Q=D0 PIPI) - N(Q=DBAR0 PIPI))/(N(Q=D0 PIPI) + N(Q=DBAR0 PIPI)).
