Search for diphoton events with large missing transverse energy in pp collisions at = 1.8 TeV


Journal Article

A search for new physics has been carried out in the channel pp → γγ + ET, as expected in various supersymmetric models. We require two photons with transverse energy EγT > 12 GeV and pseudorapidity |ηγ < 1.1. The distribution of missing transverse energy (ET) is consistent with background and no events have ET > 25 GeV. We set limits on production cross sections for selectron, sneutrino, and neutralino pairs, decaying into photons, which range from about 400 fb to 1 pb depending on the sparticle masses. A general limit of 185 fb (95% C.L.) is set on σ(pp → γγET + X), where eγT > 12 GeV, |ηγ| < 1.1, and ET > 25 GeV. © 1997 The American Physical Society.
