Title: Looking for a heavy W-ino lightest supersymmetric particle in collider and dark matter experiments

Abstract

We investigate the phenomenology of a wino lightest superparticle as obtained in anomaly mediated supersymmetry breaking and some string models. The Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe constraint on the dark matter relic density implies a wino lightest superparticle mass of 2.0-2.3 TeV. We find a viable signature for such a heavy wino at CLIC, operating at its highest center of mass energy of 5 TeV. One also expects a viable monochromatic {gamma}-ray signal from its pair-annihilation at the galactic center at least for cuspy dark matter halo profiles.

  • In supersymmetric models, W -inos, partners of the SU(2) gauge bosons, may be the lightest supersymmetric particles. For generic parameters, charged and neutral W -inos are highly degenerate. Charged W -inos travel macroscopic distances, but can decay to neutral W -inos and extremely soft leptons or pions before reaching the muon chambers, thereby circumventing conventional trigger requirements. However, these charginos are detectable, and can be triggered on when produced in association with jets. In addition, we propose a new trigger for events with a high p[sub T] track and low hadronic activity. For Tevatron RunthinspthinspII with luminosity 2 fb[sup [minus]1]more » , the proposed searches can discover W -inos with masses up to 300thinspthinspGeV and explore a substantial portion of the parameter space in sequestered sector models.

  • A striking consequence of supersymmetry breaking communicated purely via the superconformal anomaly is that the gaugino masses are proportional to the gauge {beta} functions. This result, however, is not unique to anomaly mediation. We present examples of ''generalized'' gauge-mediated models with messengers in standard model representations that give nearly identical predictions for the gaugino masses, but positive (mass){sup 2} for all sleptons. There are remarkable similarities between an anomaly-mediated model with a small additional universal mass added to all scalars and the gauge-mediated models with a long-lived W-ino next-to-lightest supersymmetric particle, leading to only a small set of observables thatmore » provide robust distinguishing criteria. These include ratios of the heaviest to lightest selectrons, smuons, and top squarks. The sign of the gluino soft mass is an unambiguous distinction, but requires measuring a difficult class of one-loop radiative corrections to sparticle interactions. A high precision measurement of the Higgs-boson-b-b(bar sign) coupling is probably the most promising interaction from which this sign might be extracted.

  • In this talk, I present the possibility of gravitino lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) as the dark matter in the framework of the Constrained MSSM. We find the prospects of the gravitino LSP for the implication on the vacuum structure of our universe and the solutions to the cosmic lithium problems.
  • In this article, we explore the interplay between searches for supersymmetric particles and Higgs bosons at hadron colliders (the Tevatron and the LHC) and direct dark matter searches (such as CDMS, ZEPLIN, XENON, EDELWEISS, CRESST, WARP and others). We focus on collider searches for heavy MSSM Higgs bosons (A, H, H{sup {+-}}) and how the prospects for these searches are impacted by direct dark matter limits and vice versa. We find that the prospects of these two experimental programs are highly interrelated. A positive detection of A, H or H{sup {+-}} at the Tevatron would dramatically enhance the prospects formore » a near future direct discovery of neutralino dark matter. Similarly, a positive direct detection of neutralino dark matter would enhance the prospects of discovering heavy MSSM Higgs bosons at the Tevatron or the LHC. Combining the information obtained from both types of experimental searches will enable us to learn more about the nature of supersymmetry.« less
