Abstract: We present searches for dark matter pair-production and for graviton production predicted by the ADD large extra dimension model in a final state with a photon and missing transverse energy in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}= $ 13 TeV. Data taken by the CMS experiment in 2015 corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.3 fb$^{-1}$ is analyzed. We find no deviation from the Standard Model prediction for this final state, and achieve an extension of the current limits on parameter space. | ||

Summary |
Proton-proton collision events containing a photon and missing transverse momentum have been investigated to search for new phenomena. In the $\sqrt{s} = $ 13 TeV data set corresponding to 2.3 fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity, no deviations from the standard model predictions are observed. Upper limit of 10.7 fb on the cross section is set at the 95% confidence level for events with a monophoton final state with photon $p_{\mathrm{T}} >$ 175 GeV and $E_{\mathrm{T}}^{\text{miss}} >$ 170 GeV. Upper limits are obtained on dark matter production cross sections and effective Planck scale in the ADD large extra dimension models at 95% confidence level. For the simplified DM model considered, the search excludes mediator masses of up to 600 GeV for massless dark matter. For an effective field theory model with a photon-dark matter contact interaction, values for the suppression scale up to 542 GeV are excluded. For the large extra dimension models, an effective Planck scale of up to 2.35 TeV is excluded. |
