Higgs Assisted Razor Search for Higgsinos at a 100 TeV $pp$ Collider

Abstract

A 100 TeV proton-proton collider will be an extremely effective way to probe the electroweak sector of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). In this paper, we describe a search strategy for discovering pair-produced Higgsino-like next-to-lightest supersymmetric particles (NLSPs) at a 100 TeV hadron collider that decay to Bino-like lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) via intermediate $Z$ and SM Higgs boson that in turn decay to a pair of leptons and a pair of $b$-quarks respectively: $\N_{2}\N_{3} \rightarrow (Z\N_1)(h\N_1)\rightarrow bb\ell\ell+\N_1\N_1$. In addition, we examine the potential for machine learning techniques to boost the power of our searches. Using this analysis, Higgsinos up to 1.4 TeV can be discovered at 5 $\sigma$ level for a Bino with mass of about 0.9 TeV using 3000 fb$^{-1}$ of data. Additionally, Higgsinos up to 1.8 TeV can be excluded at 95\% C.L. for Binos with mass of about 1.4 TeV. This search channel extends the multi-lepton search limits, especially in the region where the mass difference between the Higgsino NLSPs and the Bino LSP is small.
