Abstract

We investigate the light charged Higgs boson production via $pp \rightarrow H^\pm h$ at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in the Two-Higgs Doublet Model (2HDM) type-I. By focusing on a scenario where $H$ is the observed Higgs boson of mass 125 GeV, we study the aforementioned Higgs boson production channel and explore its bosonic decay $H^\pm \rightarrow W^\pm h$. The latter can have a sizable rate that possibly dominates, over the fermionic decay channels, in several regions of the viable parameter space. We demonstrate that the production process $pp \rightarrow H^\pm h$ followed by $H^\pm \rightarrow W^\pm h$ could be the most promising experimental avenue to search for light $H^\pm$ at the LHC.
