"Hunt for low mass diphoton resonance at LHC and beyond"

Speaker: Kohsaku Tobioka , Stony Brook University

When: April 6, 2018 (Fri), 04:00PM to 05:00PM (add to my calendar)
Location: PRB 595

This event is part of the HET Seminar Series.

I discuss new strategies to hunt for a resonance in diphoton final state. First, I present a new bound on diphoton resonances using inclusive diphoton cross section measurements at the LHC (ATLAS and CMS), in the so-far poorly constrained mass range between the Upsilon and the SM Higgs. This bound sets the current best limit on axion-like particles that couple to gluons and photons, for masses between 10 and 65 GeV. Also, we estimated indicative sensitivities of a dedicated diphoton LHC search in the same mass region, at 7, 8 and 14 TeV. For a lighter resonance below 10GeV, as preliminary studies, I discuss future searches for the resonance at the LHCb and Kaon factories, in particular, the KOTO experiment.
