In the paper, we discuss the possibility of observation of heavy quarkoniums via the processes involving flavor changing neutral currents (FCNC). More explicitly, we systematically calculate the production of heavy charmonium and (c (b) over bar -quarkonium through the top quark semiexclusive rare FCNC decays in the framework of the nonrelativistic QCD (NRQCD) factorization theory. Our results show that the total decay widths Gamma(t -> eta c) = 1.20(-0.51-0.45)( +1.04+1.14) x 10(-16 )GeV, Gamma(t -> J/psi)=1.37(-0.51-.051)(+1.03+1.30)x 10(-16) GeV, Gamma(t -> Bc) = 2.06(-0.17-0.54)(+0.17+0.91) x 10(-18) GeV, and Gamma(t -> Bc*) = 6.27(-0.62-1.64)(+0.63+2.78)x 10(-18) GeV, where the uncertainties are from variation of quark masses and renormalization scales. Even though the decay widths are small, it is important to make a systematic study on the production of charmonium and (cb)-quarkonium through the top-quark decays via FCNC in the Standard Model, which will provide useful guidance for future new physics research from the heavy quarkonium involved processes.
