Search for displaced photons using conversions at 8 TeV /CMS Collaboration
A search is performed for long-lived neutral particles decaying to photons and invisible particles. An example of a physics process leading to such a signature is the decay of the lightest neutralino with nonzero lifetime into a gravitino and a photon, as predicted by gauge-mediated supersymmetric models. The search is based on events containing at least two photons of which at least one has converted to an $e^{+}e^{-}$ pair, at least two jets, and missing transverse energy. The transverse impact parameter can be reconstructed using photons converting into $e^{+}e^{-}$ pairs. We consider scenarios in which the neutralino has a mean lifetime between $c\tau =$ 0.4 and 100 cm. The analysis was performed on a data sample collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC in 2012 at center-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s}=8$ TeV and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of $19.7$ fb$^{-1}$ of proton--proton collisions..

A search is performed for a new heavy resonance decaying to a Z boson and a light resonance, where the light resonance decays to either a pair of bottom quarks or a pair of tau leptons and the Z boson decays to two electrons or two muons.

Search for supersymmetry in events with soft leptons, low jet multiplicity, and missing transverse momentum in proton-proton collisions at sqrt(s) = 8 TeV /CMS Collaboration
A search for supersymmetry with a compressed mass spectrum is presented. Events are selected using the presence of a high-momentum jet from initial state radiation, high missing energy, and a low-momentum muon, either as the only lepton in the event or accompanied by an electron or muon of the opposite charge. In particular, a scenario of top squark pair production is investigated, where the mass difference to the lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) is smaller than the mass of the W~boson. In this case the top squarks could undergo four-body decays to $\mathrm{b} \ell \nu + \mathrm{LSP}$. The search is performed in a sample of proton-proton collisions recorded with the CMS detector at a centre-of-mass energy of 8\,TeV and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7\,$\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$. The results are consistent with the expectation from standard model processes and limits are set on the production cross section in the plane of the top squark vs. LSP masses. Assuming a 100\% branching ratio of the four-body decay top squark masses below 316\,GeV are excluded at 95\%~confidence level for a mass difference to the LSP of about 25\,GeV. Results are also interpreted under the assumption of chargino-neutralino production, with subsequent decays via sleptons or sneutrinos..
