New Production Mechanism for Heavy Neutrinos at the LHC

Presented by Dr. Bhupal DEV on 22 Jul 2014 from 14:50 to 15:10
Type: Lepton Flavour Violation and Neutrinos
Track: Lepton Flavour Violation and Neutrinos


We discuss a new production mechanism for heavy neutrinos at the LHC, which is infrared-enhanced by t-channel W-photon fusion processes, and dominates over the usually considered s-channel W-exchange diagram for heavy-neutrino masses larger than 100-200 GeV. This has important implications for the ongoing heavy neutrino searches at the LHC, complementary to their low-energy Lepton Flavor Violation searches. The scope of this new mechanism can as well be extended to other exotic searches at the LHC.
