We investigate a strategy to search for light, nearly degenerate higgsinos within the natural MSSM at the LHC. We demonstrate that the higgsino mass range mu in 100 - 160 GeV, which is preferred by the naturalness, can be probed at 3 sigma significance through the monojet search at 14TeV HL-LHC with 3000 fb(-1) luminosity. The proposed method can also probe certain region in the parameter space for the lightest neutralino with a high higgsino purity, that cannot be reached by planned direct detection experiments at XENON-1T(2017).

ATLAS Z-peaked excess in the MSSM with a light sbottom or stop

We attempt to explain the recent ATLAS 3 sigma excess of dilepton events with an invariant mass near Z peak through the gluino-mediated sbottom production in a simplified scenario inspired by the minimal supersymmetric Standard Model. The additional Z bosons can be produced through the cascade decay chain (g) over tilde -> b (b) over tilde1(dagger) -> b (b) over bar(chi) over tilde (0)(2,3) -> b (b) over bar(chi) over tilde (0)(1)Z, in which (b) over tilde (1) is the right-handed sbottom, (chi) over tilde (0)(1) is the bino-like lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) and (chi) over tilde (0)(2,3) are two nearly degenerate Higgsino-like next-to LSPs. Taking into account the constraint from the LHC search for the gluino-mediated sbottom production in the final states with the missing transverse energy and at least three b-jets, we find that the ATLAS on-Z excess can only be marginally explained at the 2 sigma level. We also note that within the scenario where the gluino predominantly decays to the right-handed stop instead of the sbottom, the excess can hardly be explained, since the Z-boson is not produced in the stop dominant decay channel, (t) over tilde (1) -> b (chi) over tilde (+)(1).
