Searching for H -> gamma gamma in weak boson fusion at the LHC

Abstract

Weak boson fusion is a copious source of intermediate mass Higgs bosons at the LHC, with a rate sigma*B(H -> gamma gamma) of up to 9 fb. The additional very energetic forward jets in these events provide for a unique signature. A parton level analysis of the dominant backgrounds demonstrates that this channel allows the observation of H -> gamma gamma in a low background environment, with modest luminosity.Comment: 12 pages, 4 figures, submitted to Journal of High Energy Physic
