    With the recent discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the goals of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment are now focused on probing for new physics beyond the standard model. The final state consisting of a low transverse energy photon and low missing transverse energy (MET), also called the monophoton final state, can be used to constrain a variety of extensions of the standard model, including supersymmetry. I present a search for new physics in this low MET monophoton channel using 7.3/fb of 8 TeV pp collision data collected with the CMS detector. This analysis extends the high-energy single-photon searches to a lower energy regime. In the absence of deviations from the standard model predictions, limits are set on the production cross section of exotic decays of the Higgs boson. In addition, we present model independent limits for a generic signal in the monophoton final state.Comment: Presentation at the DPF 2015 Meeting of the American Physical Society Division of Particles and Fields, Ann Arbor, Michigan, August 4-8, 201

    Searches for high mass resonances with the CMS detector

    Full text link
    New heavy resonances are predicted by many extensions of the standard model of particle physics. Recent results for high mass resonance searches with the Compact Muon Solenoid detector, in the diphoton, dilepton, dijet and ttbar channels, are discussed. Limits for numerous benchmark models are presented.Comment: Presented at the 2011 Hadron Collider Physics symposium (HCP-2011), Paris, France, November 14-18 2011, 4 pages, 8 figure

    First CMS Results with LHC Beam

    The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) Experiment is a general purpose particle detector experiment located at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. In 2008, the LHC beam was commissioned and successfully steered through the CMS detector. First results from CMS with beam data are described, focusing on detector commissioning with beam data, from beam halo studies with the endcap muon system to displays of ``beam splash'' events, in which the proton beam was stopped by an upstream collimator

    The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) Experiment, located at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, is a general purpose particle detector experiment with a high resolution electromagnetic calorimeter (ECAL). I report on the commissioning of the light monitoring system, which tracks changes in transparency of the lead tungstate crystals and is thus crucial for maintaining the energy resolution of the calorimeter

    Differential cross section measurements for the production of a W boson in association with jets in proton‚Äďproton collisions at ‚ąös = 7 TeV

    Get PDF
    Measurements are reported of differential cross sections for the production of a W boson, which decays into a muon and a neutrino, in association with jets, as a function of several variables, including the transverse momenta (pT) and pseudorapidities of the four leading jets, the scalar sum of jet transverse momenta (HT), and the difference in azimuthal angle between the directions of each jet and the muon. The data sample of pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV was collected with the CMS detector at the LHC and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb[superscript ‚ąí1]. The measured cross sections are compared to predictions from Monte Carlo generators, MadGraph + pythia and sherpa, and to next-to-leading-order calculations from BlackHat + sherpa. The differential cross sections are found to be in agreement with the predictions, apart from the pT distributions of the leading jets at high pT values, the distributions of the HT at high-HT and low jet multiplicity, and the distribution of the difference in azimuthal angle between the leading jet and the muon at low values.United States.
