ABSTRACT We report the results of a search for supersymmetry (SUSY) with gauge-mediated breaking in the missing transverse energy distribution of inclusive diphoton events using 263 pb(-1) of data collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider in 2002-2004. No excess is observed above the background expected from standard model processes, and lower limits on the masses of the lightest neutralino and chargino of about 108 and 195 GeV, respectively, are set at the 95% confidence level. These are the most stringent limits to date for models with gauge-mediated SUSY breaking with a short-lived neutralino as the next-to-lightest SUSY particle.

    ABSTRACT: The Run I results on the searches for new physics in photon final states were intriguing. The rare eeγγ≠ET candidate event and the measured event rate for the signature ℓ+γ+≠ET, which was 2.7 sigma above the Standard Model predictions, sparked signature-based searches in the γγ+X and ℓγ+X channels. With more data in Run II we should be able to answer a simple question: was it an anomaly or were the Run I results the first evidence for new physics? We present searches for new physics in photon final states at CDF Run II, Fermilab, with substantially more data and a higher p̄p collision energy, 1.96TeV, and the upgraded CDF-II detector.

    ABSTRACT: Recent theoretical developments have shown that gauge mediation has a much larger parameter space of possible spectra and mixings than previously considered. Motivated by this, we explore the collider phenomenology of gauge mediation models where a general neutralino is the lightest MSSM superpartner (the NLSP), focusing on the potential reach from existing and future Tevatron searches. Promptly decaying general neutralino NLSPs can give rise to final states involving missing energy plus photons, Zs, Ws and/or Higgses. We survey the final states and determine those where the Tevatron should have the most sensitivity. We then estimate the reach of existing Tevatron searches in these final states and discuss new searches (or optimizations of existing ones) that should improve the reach. Finally we comment on the potential for discovery at the LHC. Comment: 41 pages, minor changes, added refs and discussion of previous literature

    ABSTRACT: In the light of recent experimental data on gaugino searches, we revisit the direct-transmission model of dynamical supersymmetry breaking with the gravitino mass , which does not have any cosmological or astrophysical problems. We find that in the consistent regions of parameter space, the model predicts not only upper bounds on superparticle masses (1.1 TeV, 320 GeV, 160 GeV, 5 TeV, 1.5 TeV and 700 GeV for gluino, wino, bino, squarks, left-handed sleptons and right-handed sleptons, respectively), but also a mass of the lightest messenger particle in the range of 10–50 TeV. The lightest messenger particle can naturally be a messenger sneutrino. Therefore, this may suggest that the messenger sneutrino could be the dark matter, as proposed recently by Hooper and March-Russell to account for the gamma-ray spectrum from the galactic center observed by HESS experiment.
