CMS Collaboration; Khachatryan, V; Sirunyan, A M; Tumasyan, A; Yang, Y; Amsler, C; Canelli, M F; Chiochia, V; De Cosa, A; Hinzmann, A; Hreus, T; Kilminster, B; Mejias, B; Ngadiuba, J; Robmann, P; Ronga, F J; Taroni, S; Verzetti, M; et al (2014). Search for heavy neutrinos and W bosons with right-handed couplings in proton-proton collisions at s√=8TeV. European Physical Journal C - Particles and Fields, 74(3149):online.

Abstract

A search for heavy, right-handed neutrinos, Nℓ ( ℓ=e,μ ), and right-handed WR bosons, which arise in the left-right symmetric extensions of the standard model, has been performed by the CMS experiment. The search was based on a sample of two lepton plus two jet events collected in proton–proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb−1 . For models with strict left-right symmetry, and assuming only one Nℓ flavor contributes significantly to the WR decay width, the region in the two-dimensional (MWR,MNℓ) mass plane excluded at a 95 % confidence level extends to approximately MWR=3.0TeV and covers a large range of neutrino masses below the WR boson mass, depending on the value of MWR . This search significantly extends the (MWR,MNℓ) exclusion region beyond previous results.
