CMS Collaboration; Khachatryan, V; Sirunyan, A M; Tumasyan, A; Amsler, C; Canelli, F; Chiochia, V; De Cosa, A; Hinzmann, A; Hreus, T; Snoek, H; Kilminster, B; Ngadiuba, J; Robmann, P; Ronga, F J; Taroni, S; Verzetti, M; Yang, Y; Mejias, B; et al (2014). Search for excited quarks in the γ+jet final state in proton–proton collisions at s√=8 TeV. Physics Letters B, 738:274-293.

Abstract

A search for excited quarks decaying into the γ+jet final state is presented. The analysis is based on data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb−1 collected by the CMS experiment in proton–proton collisions at s√ = 8 TeV at the LHC. Events with photons and jets with high transverse momenta are selected and the γ+jet invariant mass distribution is studied to search for a resonance peak. The 95% confidence level upper limits on the product of cross section and branching fraction are evaluated as a function of the excited quark mass. Limits on excited quarks are presented as a function of their mass and coupling strength; masses below 3.5 TeV are excluded at 95% confidence level for unit couplings to their standard model partners.
