Title: A flippon related singlet at the LHC II

Abstract

Here, we consider the 750 GeV diphoton resonance at the 13 TeV LHC in the ℱ-SU(5) model with a Standard Model (SM) singlet field which couples to TeV-scale vector-like particles, dubbed flippons. This singlet field assumes the role of the 750 GeV resonance, with production via gluon fusion and subsequent decay to a diphoton via the vector-like particle loops. We present a numerical analysis showing that the observed 8 TeV and 13 TeV diphoton production cross-sections can be generated in the model space with realistic electric charges and Yukawa couplings for light vector-like masses. We further discuss the experimental viability of light vector-like masses in a General No-Scale ℱ-SU(5) model, offering a few benchmark scenarios in this consistent GUT that can satisfy all experimental constraints imposed by the LHC and other essential experiments.

  • In the course of 248-nm laser flash photolysis, solutions of 9-phenylxanthen-9-ol (1) undergo homolytic and heterolytic photodehydroxylation, the relative efficiency of which depends strongly on the solvent nature. Polar/hydroxylic solvents, particularly aqueous mixtures, cause copious formation of 9-phenylxanthenium cation (2), the ground, and excited-state properties of which are conveniently studied by single- and double-laser flash photolysis. In 1:1 H{sub 2}O/MeCN, the quantum yield of carbenium ion generation is 0.4 {plus minus} 0.1; only 1 % of photoheterolysis occurs through an adiabatic route. Surprisingly, in polar but nonhydroxylic solvents (e.g., acetonitrile and 1,2-dichloroethane) also, the cation is photogenerated in small butmore » sufficient yields to allow time-resolved spectroscopic detection and study in these relatively neutral and inert media. In relatively nonpolar solvents, e.g., n-heptane and benzene, the photolysis of 1 is dominated by homolytic cleavage to 9-phenxylxanthenyl radical (3). The short-lived triplets of 1 ({tau}{sub T} {<=} 0.3 {mu}s) are also observed in nonaqueous solvents ({phi}{sub T} = 0.05 in acetontrile). In comparison to the weak, fast-decaying, doublet-doublet fluorescence of 3 ({lambda}{sub max}{sup F} = 590 nm, {tau}{sub F} {<=} 5 ns), the singlet-singlet fluorescence from 2 is intense and long-lived ({lambda}{sub max}{sup F} = 550 nm, {tau}{sub F} = 25 ns in acetonitrile in the absence of nucleophilic quenchers) and is almost nonquenchable by oxygen (k{sub q} {<=} 5 {times} 10{sup 8} M{sup {minus}1} s{sup {minus}1}). The electrophilicity of the lowest excited singlet state of 2, measured in terms of rate constants (k{sub q}) of bimolecular quenching by anions and lone-pair containing molecules, is considerably more pronounced than that of the ground state (that is, k{sub q} are higher for the excited state by several orders of magnitude).« less
  • Endo- and exo-2-methyl-6-methylenebicyclo(3.1.0)hexane (N and X) interconverted at 164/sup 0/C at a rate comparable to that for cis to trans isomerization of the 2,3-dimethylmethylenecyclopropanes (C and T) allowing the possibility that the planar trimethylenemethane singlet is responsible for the racemization observed with optically active T. Pyrolysis of the four 2-methyl-6-ethylidenebicyclo(3.1.0)hexanes revealed an average of 8 percent preservation of the exo ethylidene stereochemistry in the bridgehead double inversion reaction. The kinetic deuterium isotope effect on the interconversion of endo- and exo-6,2-methyl-6-dideuteriomethylenebicyclo(3.1.0)hexanes, k/sub H/sub 2///k/sub D/sub 2// = 1.08 +- 0.02, suggests that exo methylene rotation occurs after rate-determining formation of amore » planar trimethylenemethane biradical since exo methylene rotation in the formation of anti- and syn-2-methylethylidenecyclopropane from trans-2,3-dimethyldideuteriomethylenecyclopropane has an isotope effect of 1.31 +- 0.04. Detailed mechanisms for the stereochemical and kinetic data from pyrolysis of T and C which involve mainly orthogonal and, to a lesser extent, planar or bisorthogonal trimethylenemethane biradicals are presented. The origin and magnitude of rotational kinetic isotope effects in these interconversions is discussed.« less
  • Fluorescence quantum beats, observed among hyperfine substates of the {ital N}=8, 10, 15, 18, 19, 22, and 38 rotational levels of the 4{sup 1}{tilde {ital A}}({sup 1}{Sigma}{sup {minus}}{sub {ital u}}) state of C{sub 2}N{sub 2}, are discussed. The Zeeman splittings of some beats, for {ital N}=8, 19, and 22, are too small to arise from the spin{endash}orbit coupling of a singlet/triplet pair of states, and are attributed to singlet/singlet interactions. A simple two-state singlet/triplet model, successfully used for a previous analysis of beats from {ital N}=12, accurately accounts for magnetic modulations observed for beats from the {ital N}=8 and {italmore » N}=18 rotational states. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}« less
  • Intramolecular singlet energy transfer can be detected in a series of rigid bichromophoric molecules (1(n)) where a dimethoxynaphthalene chromophore and a carbonyl chromophore are separated by extended all-trans arrays of up to eight C-C {sigma} bonds (1(8)). In the series of compounds 2(n) kinks are introduced in the array of {sigma} bonds of the saturated hydrocarbon system, which bridges the chromophores. Singlet energy transfer is then much less efficient (i.e. in 2(6)) or even absent (i.e. in 2(8)), which supports the earlier interpretation of the energy transfer mechanism in 1(n) as being mainly mediated by through-bond exchange interaction and furthermoremore » explains the virtual absence of such interaction in more flexible systems where the chromophores are linked by polymethylene bridges.« less
