750 GeV diphoton excess and its explanation in two-Higgs-doublet models with a real inert scalar multiplet

750 GeV diphoton excess and its explanation in two-Higgs-doublet models with a real inert scalar multiplet
750 GeV diphoton excess and its explanation in two-Higgs-doublet models with a real inert scalar multiplet
We discuss a possible explanation of the recently observed diphoton excess at around 750 GeV as seen by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the Large Hadron Collider. We calculate the cross section of the diphoton signature in 2-Higgs Doublet Models with the addition of a real isospin scalar multiplet without a vacuum expectation value, where a neutral component of such a representation can be a dark matter candidate. We find that the branching fraction of an additional CP-even Higgs boson $H$ from the doublet fields into the diphoton mode can be significantly enhanced, by up to a factor of $10^3$, with respect to the case of the simple 2-Higgs Doublet Model. Such a sizable enhancement is realized due to multi-charged inert particle loops entering the $H\to \gamma\gamma$ decay mode. Through this enhancement, we obtain a suitable cross section of the $gg\to H \to \gamma\gamma$ process to explain the data with the fixed mass of $H$ being 750 GeV.

Abstract

We discuss a possible explanation of the recently observed diphoton excess at around 750 GeV as seen by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the Large Hadron Collider. We calculate the cross section of the diphoton signature in 2-Higgs Doublet Models with the addition of a real isospin scalar multiplet without a vacuum expectation value, where a neutral component of such a representation can be a dark matter candidate. We find that the branching fraction of an additional CP-even Higgs boson $H$ from the doublet fields into the diphoton mode can be significantly enhanced, by up to a factor of $10^3$, with respect to the case of the simple 2-Higgs Doublet Model. Such a sizable enhancement is realized due to multi-charged inert particle loops entering the $H\to \gamma\gamma$ decay mode. Through this enhancement, we obtain a suitable cross section of the $gg\to H \to \gamma\gamma$ process to explain the data with the fixed mass of $H$ being 750 GeV.
