Figures Caption
Figure 1: In the TChiNg scenario (left), the charginos are only slightly heavier than the neutralinos, leading to chargino to neutralino decays accompanied by soft radiation. One neutralino decays to a photon and a gravitino, where the other decays into a Z or an h boson and a gravitino with equal probability. In the TChiWg scenario (top right), the gauginos are mass-degenerate and the $\widetilde{\chi}^0_1$ and $\widetilde{\chi}^{\pm}_1$ decays are as shown. Within the GGM, the branching ratio $\widetilde{\chi}^0_1\rightarrow$ $\gamma\tilde{G}$ to $\widetilde{\chi}^0_1\rightarrow$ $Z\tilde{G}$ depends on the neutralino-mass. The dominant process for electroweak GGM production is shown in (bottom right). A small amount of hadronic energy and at least one photon and $E_{\mathrm{T}}^{\text{miss}}$ are common features of the scenarios.

Figure 2: The $E_{\mathrm{T}}^{\text{miss,signif}}$ (left) and $S_{\text{T}}^{\gamma}$ (right) variables are seen to span the signal region. Four search regions are formed with $E_{\mathrm{T}}^{\text{miss,signif}}$ = 200 and $S_{\text{T}}^{\gamma}$ = 600 GeV partitions. A benchmark TChiNg signal point with M$_{\text{wino}}$ = 500 GeV is shown for comparison.
Figure 3: Exlcusion limits for the TChiNg (left) and TChiWg (right) scenario. In the TChiNg scenario NLSP masses below 570 GeV are excluded, in the TChiWg scenario NLSP masses below 680 GeV are excluded. Electronic versions of limits: TChiNg_Obs.root, TChiNg_Exp.root, TChiWg_Obs.root, TChiWg_Exp.root
Figure 4: Observed upper cross-section CLs limit at 95% C.L. for the GGM signal points for data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 7.4 fb$^{-1}$ in theM$_{\text{wino}} -$ M$_{\text{bino}}$ plane (left). Also shown are the expected and observed exclusion contours. GGM signal points near the diagonal, e.g. for M$_{\text{wino}}$ = M$_{\text{bino}}$ + 10 GeV up to a wino mass of M$_{\text{wino}}$ = 710 GeV are excluded (right).

Table 2: Summary table of systematic uncertainties relevant for the analysis. Uncertainties due to the luminosity and trigger efficiency measurement apply only to the backgrounds estimated using MC simulation without data normalization, namely t$\bar{\text{t}}\gamma$, diboson and multijet, and for the signal. The overall uncertainty of the background yields in the final selection are dominated by the uncertainty on the $V\gamma$ background.
Figure 5: Validation of the prediction of background events arising from electrons misidentified as photons depending on the $E_{\mathrm{T}}^{\text{miss,signif}}$. The prediction (red area) is obtained by replacing the $\gamma_{\text{tight}}$ definition by the $\gamma_{\text{pixel}}$ definition and scaling the distribution with the fake factor. This prediction is compared to the distribution of electrons fulfilling $\Delta$R(sim. $e$, $\gamma_{\text{tight}}$) $<$ 0.1 using generator information (black points). Good agreement is observed.

Figure 6: Measurement of the trigger efficiency of the $E_{\mathrm{T}}^{\text{miss}}$-req. as a function of the missing transverse energy. The trigger efficiency shows a broad turn-on due to the difference in the $E_{\mathrm{T}}^{\text{miss}}$ calculation used by the trigger and the offline selection. The trigger efficiency is flat for $E_{\mathrm{T}}^{\text{miss}}$ $>$ 100 GeV and given by $\varepsilon_{\text{$E_{\mathrm{T}}^{\text{miss}}$-req}} = \text{(98.3 }^{+0.8}_{-1.3}\text{(stat.))} \%$.

Figure 7: Measurement of the trigger efficiency of the photon part in dependency of the spherical distance of the photon and the nearest jet $\Delta$R(1st $\gamma$, nearest jet). The trigger efficiency is strongly reduced for small spherical distances. Therefore, $\Delta$R(1st $\gamma$, nearest jet) $>$ 0.5 is required in the analysis.

The plateau region is reached for $p_{\text{T}}$ = 40 GeV and the efficiency for $p_{\text{T}}$ $>$ 40 GeV is given by $\varepsilon_{\text{$\gamma$-req}}$ = (88.0 $\pm$ 0.7({stat.)}) $\%$.
