Search for pair production of second-generation scalar leptoquarks in pp collisions at √s=7  TeV


CMS Collaboration; Khachatryan, V; Amsler, C; Chiochia, V (2011). Search for pair production of second-generation scalar leptoquarks in pp collisions at √s=7 TeV. Physical Review Letters, 106(20):201803.

Abstract

A search for pair production of second-generation scalar leptoquarks in the final state with two muons and two jets is performed using proton-proton collision data at √s=7  TeV collected by the CMS detector at the LHC. The data sample used corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 34  pb-1. The number of observed events is in good agreement with the predictions from the standard model processes. An upper limit is set on the second-generation leptoquark cross section times β2 as a function of the leptoquark mass, and leptoquarks with masses below 394 GeV are excluded at a 95% confidence level for β=1, where β is the leptoquark branching fraction into a muon and a quark. These limits are the most stringent to date. Published by the American Physical Society under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License.
