We present results of searches for diphoton resonances produced both inclusively and also in association with a vector boson (W or Z) using 100 pb(-1) of p (p) over bar collisions using the CDF detector.

Comparing the inclusive production to the expectations from heavy sgoldstinos we derive limits on the supersymmetry-breaking scale rootF in the TeV range, depending on the sgoldstino mass and the choice of other parameters.

Abstract

We present results of searches for diphoton resonances produced both inclusively and also in association with a vector boson (W or Z) using 100 pb(-1) of p (p) over bar collisions using the CDF detector. We set upper limits on the product of cross section times branching ratio for both p (p) over bar --> gamma gamma +X and p (p) over bar --> gamma gamma+ W/Z. Comparing the inclusive production to the expectations from heavy sgoldstinos we derive limits on the supersymmetry-breaking scale rootF in the TeV range, depending on the sgoldstino mass and the choice of other parameters. Also. using a NLO prediction for the associated production of a Higgs boson with a W or Z boson, we set an upper limit on the branching ratio for H --> gamma gamma. Finally, we set a lower limit on the mass of a "bosophilic" Higgs boson (e.g., one which couples only to gamma, W, and Z bosons with standard model couplings) of 82 GeV/c(2) at 95% confidence level.
