Unusual Higgs Decays in Low-Scale Gauge Mediation
Speaker(s): David Morrissey
Abstract: In generalized models of gauge-mediated supersymmetry breaking, a standard model-like Higgs boson can decay to pairs of neutralino superpartners. If the energy scale of supersymmetry breaking is very low, each of these neutralinos will subsequently decay promptly to a photon and a gravitino. This process gives rise to a collider signal consisting of a pair of photons and missing energy. In this talk I will describe scenarios of supersymmetry breaking that can give rise this signature and other non-standard Higgs decay modes, and discuss how it might be discovered with upcoming data from the Tevatron and the LHC.
