 2018-11-1212:34 [PUBDB-2018-04401] Preprint/Report et al Searches for exclusive Higgs and $Z$ boson decays into $J/\psi\gamma$, $\psi(2S)\gamma$, and $\Upsilon(nS)\gamma$ at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV with the ATLAS detector [arXiv:1807.00802; CERN-EP-2018-154]   Searches for the exclusive decays of the Higgs and $Z$ bosons into a $J/ψ , ψ(2S)$ , or $ϒ(nS) ( n=1,2,3 )$ meson and a photon are performed with a pp collision data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36.1 fb$^{−1}$ collected at $\sqrt{s}=$ 13TeV with the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. No significant excess of events is observed above the expected backgrounds, and 95% confidence-level upper limits on the branching fractions of the Higgs boson decays to $J/ψγ , ψ(2S)γ$ , and $ϒ(nS)γ$ of $3.5×10^{−4} , 2.0 × 10^{−3}$ , and $(4.9,5.9,5.7) × 10^{−4}$ , respectively, are obtained assuming Standard Model production.

The prompt and non-prompt signals are separated using a two-dimensional simultaneous fit of the invariant mass and pseudo-proper decay time of the dimuon system from the $J/\psi$ decay.

Depending on whether the top-quark produced together with H$^{±}$ decays hadronically or leptonically, the search targets τ+jets and τ+lepton final states, in both cases with a hadronically decaying τ-lepton.

The on-detector trigger electronics modules are able to identify muons with predefined transverse momentum values (pT) by executing a coincidence logic on signals coming from the various detector layers.
