Topic: Where: WH11 NE (Sunrise)


A search for a Higgs boson decaying into a Z boson and a photon using a dataset recorded by the CMS experiment at the LHC from proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 and 8 TeV will be presented. Limits are set on the cross section of a standard model Higgs boson decaying to opposite-sign electron or muon pairs and a photon. Future analysis on dileptons plus a photon and photon plus missing energy will also be discussed.
