Abstract

Data from e+e- collisions collected with the OPAL detector at LEP have been used to exclude a standard model Higgs boson (H0) with mass below 2mμ. The analysis used 1.2 pb-1 of data taken at centre-of-mass energies between 88.3 and 95.0 GeV to search for the reactions e+e-→Z0H0, (Z0→e+e- or μ+μ-, H0→undetected), e+e-→Z0H0, (Z0→νν, H0→e+e- or γγ). The existence of a minimal standard model H0 with mass in the range 0≤mH≤2mμ is excluded at the 95% confidence level. The limit is also valid for standard model extensions with a large branching ratio for the decay of H0 to γγ.

N2 - Data from e+e- collisions collected with the OPAL detector at LEP have been used to exclude a standard model Higgs boson (H0) with mass below 2mμ. The analysis used 1.2 pb-1 of data taken at centre-of-mass energies between 88.3 and 95.0 GeV to search for the reactions e+e-→Z0H0, (Z0→e+e- or μ+μ-, H0→undetected), e+e-→Z0H0, (Z0→νν, H0→e+e- or γγ). The existence of a minimal standard model H0 with mass in the range 0≤mH≤2mμ is excluded at the 95% confidence level. The limit is also valid for standard model extensions with a large branching ratio for the decay of H0 to γγ.
