SUSY dark matter in light of CDMS II results: a comparative study for different models

Cao, Junjie; Hikasa, Ken-ichi; Wang, Wenyu; Yang, Jin Min; Yu, Li-XinSubjects: Physics >> The Physics of Elementary Particles and Fields

We perform a comparative study of the neutralino dark matter scattering on nucleon in three popular supersymmetric models: the minimal (MSSM), the next-to-minimal (NMSSM) and the nearly minimal (nMSSM). First, we give the predictions of the elastic cross section by scanning over the parameter space allowed by various direct and indirect constraints, which are from the measurement of the cosmic dark matter relic density, the collider search for Higgs boson and sparticles, the precision electroweak measurements and the muon anomalous magnetic moment. Then we demonstrate the property of the allowed parameter space with/without the new limits from CDMS II. We obtain the following observations: (i) For each model the new CDMS limits can exclude a large part of the parameter space allowed by current collider constraints; (ii) The property of the allowed parameter space is similar for MSSM and NMSSM, but quite different for nMSSM; (iii) For each model the future SuperCDMS can cover most of the allowed parameter space given that all soft breaking parameters are below 1 TeV. |

Split-SUSY dark matter in light of direct detection limits

Cao, Junjie; Wang, Wenyu; Yang, Jin MinSubjects: Physics >> The Physics of Elementary Particles and Fields

We examine the present and future XENON limits on the neutralino dark matter in split supersymmetry (split-SUSY). Through a scan over the parameter space under the current constraints from collider experiments and the WMAP measurement of the dark matter relic density, we find that in the allowed parameter space a large part has been excluded by the present XENON100 limits and a further largish part can be covered by the future exposure (6000 kg day). In case of unobservation of dark matter with such an exposure in the future, the lightest neutralino will remain bino-like and its annihilation is mainly through exchanging the SM-like Higgs boson in order to get the required relic density.

Higgs boson mass in NMSSM with right-handed neutrino

Wang, Wenyu; Yang, Jin Min; You, Lin LinSubjects: Physics >> The Physics of Elementary Particles and Fields

In order to have massive neutrinos, the right-handed neutrino/sneutrino superfield (N) need to be introduced in supersymmetry. In the framework of NMSSM (the MSSM with a singlet S) such an extension will dynamically lead to a TeNT-scale Majorana mass for the right-handed neutrino through the S N N coupling when S develops a vev (the free Majorana mass term is forbidden by the assumed Z(3) symmetry). Also, through the couplings S N N and SHuHd the SM-like Higgs boson (a mixture of H-u, H-d and S) can naturally couple with the right-handed neutrino/sneutrino. As a result, the TeV-scale right-handed neutrino/sneutrino may significantly contribute to the Higgs boson mass. Through an explicit calculation, we find that the Higgs boson mass can indeed be sizably altered by the right-handed neutrino/sneutrino. Such new contribution can help to push up the SM-like Higgs boson mass and thus make the NMSSM more natural. |

Higgs pair production with SUSY QCD correction: revisited under current experimental constraints

Han, Chengcheng; Ji, Xuanting; Wu, Lei; Wu, Peiwen; Yang, Jin MinSubjects: Physics >> The Physics of Elementary Particles and Fields

We consider the current experimental constraints on the parameter space of the MSSM and NMSSM. Then in the allowed parameter space we examine the Higgs pair production at the 14TeV LHC via b (b) over bar -> hh (h is the 125GeV SM-like Higg boson) with one-loop SUSY QCD correction and compare it with the production via gg -> hh. We obtain the following observations: (i) For the MSSM the production rate of b (b) over bar -> hh can reach 50 fb and thus can be competitive with gg -> hh, while for the NMSSM b (b) over bar -> hh has a much smaller rate than gg. hh due to the suppression of the hb (b) over bar coupling; (ii) The SUSY-QCD correction to b (b) over bar -> hh is sizable, which can reach 45% for the MSSM and 15% for the NMSSM within the 1s region of the Higgs data; (iii) In the heavy SUSY limit (all soft mass parameters become heavy), the SUSY effects decouple rather slowly from the Higgs pair production (especially the gg -> hh process), which, for M S U S Y = 5TeV and m A < 1TeV, can enhance the production rate by a factor of 1.5 and 1.3 for the MSSM and NMSSM, respectively. So, the Higgs pair production may be helpful for unraveling the effects of heavy SUSY. |

A split SUSY model from SUSY GUT

Wang, Fei; Wang, Wenyu; Yang, Jin MinSubjects: Physics >> The Physics of Elementary Particles and Fields

We propose to split the sparticle spectrum from the hierarchy between the GUT scale and the Planck scale. A split supersymmetric model, which gives non-universal gaugino masses, is built with proper high dimensional operators in the framework of SO(10) GUT. Based on a calculation of two-loop beta functions for gauge couplings (taking into account all weak scale threshold corrections), we check the gauge coupling unification and dark matter constraints (relic density and direct detections). We find that our scenario can achieve the gauge coupling unification and satisfy the dark matter constraints in some part of parameter space. We also examine the sensitivity of the future XENON1T experiment and find that the currently allowed parameter space in our scenario can be covered for a neutralino dark matter below about 1.0 TeV. |

Reconcile muon g-2 anomaly with LHC data in SUGRA with generalized gravity mediation

Wang, Fei; Wang, Wenyu; Yang, Jin MinSubjects: Physics >> The Physics of Elementary Particles and Fields

From generalized gravity mediation we build a SUGRA scenario in which the gluino is much heavier than the electroweak gauginos at the GUT scale. We find that such a non-universal gaugino scenario with very heavy gluino at the GUT scale can be naturally obtained with proper high dimensional operators in the framework of SU( 5) GUT. Then, due to the effects of heavy gluino, at the weak scale all colored sparticles are heavy while the uncolored sparticles are light, which can explain the Brookhaven muon g - 2 measurement while satisfying the collider constraints (both the 125 GeV Higgs mass and the direct search limits of sparticles) and dark matter requirements. We also find that, in order to explain the muon g - 2 measurement, the neutralino dark matter is lighter than 200GeV in our scenario, which can be mostly covered by the future Xenon1T experiment. |

Heavy colored SUSY partners from deflected anomaly mediation

Wang, Fei; Wang, Wenyu; Yang, Jin Min; Zhang, YangSubjects: Physics >> The Physics of Elementary Particles and Fields

We propose a deflected anomaly mediation scenario from SUSY QCD which can lead to both positive and negative deflection parameters (there is a smooth transition between these two deflection parameter regions by adjusting certain couplings). Such a scenario can naturally give a SUSY spectrum in which all the colored sparticles are heavy while the sleptons are light. As a result, the discrepancy between the Brookheaven g(mu) - 2 experiment and LHC data can be reconciled in this scenario. We also find that the parameter space for explaining the g(mu) - 2 anomaly at 1 sigma level can be fully covered by the future LUX-ZEPLIN 7.2 Ton experiment. |
