Abstract
The electric and weak electric dipole form factors for heavy fermions are calculated in the context of the most general two Higgs doublet model (2HDM). We find that a large top mass can produce a significant enhancement of the electric dipole form factor in the case of the b and c quarks. This effect can be used to distinguish between different 2HDM scenarios.
