Search for Supersymmetry


Outline

  • Introduction to supersymmetry

  • Phenomenology of the CMSSM

  • Non-universal scalar masses?

  • Non-universal Higgs masses (NUHM)

  • Options for the LSP

  • Gravitino dark matter

  • New possibilities for collider phenomenology


Loop Corrections to Higgs Mass2

  • Consider generic fermion and boson loops:

  • Each is quadratically divergent: ∫Λd4k/k2

  • Leading divergence cancelled if

    Supersymmetry!

Other Reasons to like Susy

It enables the gauge couplings to unify

It predicts mH < 150 GeV

As suggested

by EW data

JE, Nanopoulos, Olive + Santoso: hep-ph/0509331

Approved by Fabiola Gianotti


Astronomers say

that most of the

matter in the

Universe is

invisible

Dark Matter

Lightest Supersymmetric particles ?

We shall look for

them with the

LHC


Minimal Supersymmetric Extension of Standard Model (MSSM)

  • Particles + spartners

  • 2 Higgs doublets, coupling μ, ratio of v.e.v.’s = tan β

  • Unknown supersymmetry-breaking parameters:

    Scalar massesm0, gaugino massesm1/2,

    trilinear soft couplingsAλ, bilinear soft couplingBμ

  • Often assume universality:

    Singlem0, singlem1/2, singleAλ,Bμ: not string?

  • Called constrained MSSM = CMSSM

  • Minimal supergravity (mSUGRA) predicts additional relations for gravitino mass, supersymmetry breaking:

    m3/2 = m0,Bμ = Aλ – m0


Lightest Supersymmetric Particle

  • Stable in many models because of conservation of R parity:

    R = (-1) 2S –L + 3B

    where S = spin, L = lepton #, B = baryon #

  • Particles have R = +1, sparticles R = -1:

    Sparticles produced in pairs

    Heavier sparticles  lighter sparticles

  • Lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) stable


Possible Nature of LSP

  • No strong or electromagnetic interactions

    Otherwise would bind to matter

    Detectable as anomalous heavy nucleus

  • Possible weakly-interacting scandidates

    Sneutrino

    (Excluded by LEP, direct searches)

    Lightest neutralino χ

    Gravitino

    (nightmare for astrophysical detection)


gμ - 2

Constraints on Supersymmetry

  • Absence of sparticles at LEP, Tevatron

    selectron, chargino > 100 GeV

    squarks, gluino > 250 GeV

  • Indirect constraints

    Higgs > 114 GeV, b -> s γ

  • Density of dark matter

    lightest sparticle χ:

    WMAP: 0.094 < Ωχh2 < 0.124

Beyond the CMSSM


More General Supersymmetric Models

  • MSSM with more general pattern of supersymmetry breaking:

    non-universal scalar masses m0

    and/or gaugino masses m½

    and/or trilinear couplings A0

  • Nature of the lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP)

  • Extended particle content:

    non-minimal supersymmetric model (NMSSM)


Non-Universal Scalar Masses

  • Different sfermions with same quantum #s?

    e.g., d, s squarks?

    disfavoured by upper limits on flavour-changing neutral interactions

  • Squarks with different #s, squarks and sleptons?

    disfavoured in various GUT models

    e.g., dR = eL, dL = uL = uR = eR in SU(5), all in SO(10)

  • Non-universal susy-breaking masses for Higgses?

    No reason why not!


Non-Universal Higgs Masses (NUHM)

  • Generalize CMSSM (+)

    mHi2 = m02(1 + δi)

  • Free Higgs mixing μ,

    pseudoscalar mass mA

  • Larger parameter space

  • Constrained by vacuum

    stability


Sampling of (m1/2, m0) Planes in NUHM

New vertical

allowed strips

appear

JE + Olive + Santoso + Spanos


Low-Energy Effective Supersymmetric Theory

  • Assume universality for sfermions with same quantum numbers (but different generations)

  • Require electroweak vacuum to be stable (RGE not → negative mass2)

    up to GUT scale (LEEST)

    up to 10 TeV (LEEST10)

  • Qualitatively similar to NUHM

    not much freedom to adjust squarks/sleptons

Gravitino Dark Matter?


Possible Nature of LSP

  • No strong or electromagnetic interactions

    Otherwise would bind to matter

    Detectable as anomalous heavy nucleus

  • Possible weakly-interacting scandidates

    Sneutrino

    (Excluded by LEP, direct searches)

    Lightest neutralino χ

    Gravitino

    (nightmare for astrophysical detection)


Possible Nature of NLSP

  • NLSP = next-to-lightest sparticle

  • Very long lifetime due to gravitational decay, e.g.:

  • Could be hours, days, weeks, months or years!

  • Generic possibilities:

    lightest neutralino χ

    lightest slepton, probably lighter stau

  • Constrained by astrophysics/cosmology

non-universal Higgs masses:

Models with gravitino LSP

Models with stau NLSP

De Roeck, JE, Gianotti, Moortgat, Olive + Pape: hep-ph/0508198


Properties of NUHM and GDM Models

  • Relic density ~ WMAP in NUHM models

  • Generally < WMAP in GDM models

    Need extra source of gravitinos at high temperatures, after inflation?

  • NLSP lifetime: 104s < τ < few X 106s

De Roeck, JE, Gianotti, Moortgat, Olive + Pape: hep-ph/0508198


Final States in GDM Models with Stau NLSP

  • All decay chains

    end with lighter stau

  • Generally via χ

  • Often via heavier

    sleptons

  • Final states contain

    2 staus, 2 τ,

    often other leptons

De Roeck, JE, Gianotti, Moortgat, Olive + Pape: hep-ph/0508198


Kinematic Distributions: Point ε

  • Staus come with

    many jets & leptons

    with pT hundreds of GeV,

    produced centrally

De Roeck, JE, Gianotti, Moortgat, Olive + Pape: hep-ph/0508198


Kinematic Distributions: Point ζ

  • Staus come with

    many jets & leptons

    with pT hundreds of GeV,

    produced centrally

De Roeck, JE, Gianotti, Moortgat, Olive + Pape: hep-ph/0508198


Stau Mass Measurements by Time-of-Flight

  • Event-by-event

    accuracy < 10%

  • < 1% with full sample

Stau Momentum Spectra

  • βγ typically peaked ~ 2

  • Staus with βγ < 1 leave central tracker

    after next beam crossing

  • Staus with βγ < ¼ trapped inside calorimeter

  • Staus with βγ < ½ stopped within 10m

  • Can they be dug out?

De Roeck, JE, Gianotti, Moortgat, Olive + Pape: hep-ph/0508198


Very little room for water tank in LHC caverns,

only in forward directions where few staus

Extract Cores from Surrounding Rock?

  • Use muon system to locate impact point on cavern wall with uncertainty < 1cm

  • Fix impact angle with accuracy 10-3

  • Bore into cavern wall and remove core of size 1cm × 1cm × 10m = 10-3m3 ~ 100 times/year

  • Can this be done before staus decay?

    Caveat radioactivity induced by collisions!

    2-day technical stop ~ 1/month

  • Not possible if lifetime ~104s, possible if ~106s?

De Roeck, JE, Gianotti, Moortgat, Olive + Pape: hep-ph/0508198


Detect Staus in Mass Spectrometer?

  • Each core ~ 1cm × 1cm × 10m

  • ‘Region of interest’ ~ 1m long

  • Contains ~ 2 × 1027 nucleons, i.e., 1027 protons

  • Present best limits from water ~ 10-29/proton

  • Sensitivity possible in principle

  • How quickly could the volume be searched?

  • Have at most a few weeks!

De Roeck, JE, Gianotti, Moortgat, Olive + Pape: hep-ph/0508198


Detect Supersymmetric Decay Albedo?

  • Look for staus stopping ~ 10m from detector

  • Later decay → τ + gravitino

  • τ → μ with branching ratio ~ 16%

  • Characteristic energies ~ (1/6) mstau

    ~ 25 to 50 GeV

  • Geometric acceptance for upward-going μ ~ 1/12 → ~ 1.3% of stau decays detectable

    → ~ 100 events/year in benchmark scenario ε

De Roeck, JE, Gianotti, Moortgat, Olive + Pape: hep-ph/0508198


Caveat Cosmic-RayBackground

  • Background of cosmic-ray μ

    ~ 100 events/year

  • Similar energy range

  • Signal might be visible in

    benchmark scenario ε

  • Not in scenarios ζ and η

De Roeck, JE, Gianotti, Moortgat, Olive + Pape: hep-ph/0508198


Potential Measurement Accuracies

Gravitino Dark Matter even more interesting

than Neutralino Dark Matter!

Measure staumass to 1%

Measure m½ to 1%

via cross section, other masses?

Distinguish points ζ, η

De Roeck, JE, Gianotti, Moortgat, Olive + Pape: hep-ph/0508198


Summary

  • The ‘C’ in CMSSM signifies ‘conservative’

  • Many more exotic supersymmetric phenomenologies are possible

  • Gravitino dark matter is one example

  • Not to mention breaking of R parity …

    … nor split supersymmetry

  • Supersymmetry is the most ‘expected’ surprise at the LHC

  • Expect it to appear in an unexpected way!
