    In this work, charge collection profiles of non-irradiated and irradiated 150 őľ\mum pp-type pad diodes were measured using a 5.2 GeV electron beam traversing the diode parallel to the readout electrode. Four diodes were irradiated to 1 MeV neutron equivalent fluences of 2, 4, 8, and 12E15 {cm}^{-2} with 23 MeV protons. The Charge Collection Efficiency profiles as a function of depth are extracted by unfolding the data. The results of the measurements are compared to the simulation using three radiation damage models from literature which were tuned to different irradiation types and fluences

    A search is presented for new particles produced at the LHC in proton-proton collisions at root s = 13 TeV, using events with energetic jets and large missing transverse momentum. The analysis is based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 101 fb(-1), collected in 2017-2018 with the CMS detector. Machine learning techniques are used to define separate categories for events with narrow jets from initial-state radiation and events with large-radius jets consistent with a hadronic decay of a W or Z boson. A statistical combination is made with an earlier search based on a data sample of 36 fb(-1), collected in 2016. No significant excess of events is observed with respect to the standard model background expectation determined from control samples in data. The results are interpreted in terms of limits on the branching fraction of an invisible decay of the Higgs boson, as well as constraints on simplified models of dark matter, on first-generation scalar leptoquarks decaying to quarks and neutrinos, and on models with large extra dimensions. Several of the new limits, specifically for spin-1 dark matter mediators, pseudoscalar mediators, colored mediators, and leptoquarks, are the most restrictive to date.Peer reviewe
