Search for new physics in monojet events in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 8 TeV

Abstract

Results are presented from a search for particle dark matter (DM), extra dimensions, and unparticles using events containing a jet and an imbalance in transverse momentum. The data were collected by the CMS detector in proton-proton collisions at the LHC and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb-1 at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV. The number of observed events is found to be consistent with the standard model prediction. Limits are placed on the DM-nucleon scattering cross section as a function of the DM particle mass for spin-dependent and spin-independent interactions. Limits are also placed on the scale parameter MD in the ADD model of large extra dimensions, and on the unparticle model parameter ΛU. The constraints on ADD models and unparticles are the most stringent limits in this channel and those on the DM-nucleon scattering cross section are an improvement over previous collider results.

Missing transverse energy (MET) after all selections for data and SM backgrounds. The processes contributing to the SM background are from simulation, normalised to the estimation from data using the MET threshold of 500 GeV. The shaded bands in the lower panel represent the statistical uncertainty. Overflow events are included in the last bin.

Upper limits on the DM-nucleon cross section, at 90% CL, plotted against DM particle mass and compared with previously published results. (a) limits for the vector and scalar operators from the previous CMS analysis, together with results from the CoGeNT, SIMPLE, COUPP, CDMS, SuperCDMS, XENON100, and LUX collaborations. The solid and hatched yellow contours show the 68% and 90% CL contours respectively for a possible signal from CDMS. (b): limits for the axial-vector operator from the previous CMS analysis, together with results from the SIMPLE, COUPP, Super-K, and IceCube collaborations.
