Search for Compressed Higgsinos in events with two oppositely charged soft leptons at the CMS experiment — Samuel Bein, Viktor Kutzner, Yuval Nissan, Peter Schleper, •Alexandra Tews, and Moritz Wolf — Universität Hamburg, Deutschland
A variety of supersymmetric extensions of the Standard Model lead to light Higgsinos with compressed mass spectra.
In case of pair production of Higgsino-like electroweakinos, e.g. χ1±, χ20, the decay of the second neutralino through an off-shell Z boson can lead to a pair of same-flavor opposite-sign leptons. These leptons can have very low momentum and semi-stable lifetimes if the mass spectrum of the SUSY particles is sufficiently compressed (nearly degenerate).
Searches for SUSY in events with two low-momentum opposite-sign leptons are particularly sensitive to such SUSY models. Scenarios with compressed Higgsinos with a mass splitting below 2 GeV with the CMS experiment are studied. We exploit new reconstruction and vertexing techniques for oppositely charged displaced lepton tracks with very low momenta of order of a few hundred MeV.
