A search for narrow resonances in the dijet mass spectrum is performed using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.9 pb⁻¹ collected by the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. Upper limits at the 95% confidence level are presented on the product of the resonance cross section, branching fraction into dijets, and acceptance, separately(More)
The production of jets associated to bottom quarks is measured for the first time in PbPb collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 2.76 TeV per nucleon pair. Jet spectra are reported in the transverse momentum (p(T)) range of 80-250  GeV/c, and within pseudorapidity |η|<2. The nuclear modification factor (R(AA)) calculated from these spectra shows a strong(More)
A simultaneous measurement of the top-quark, W-boson, and neutrino masses is reported for tt events selected in the dilepton final state from a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb −1 collected by the CMS experiment in pp collisions at √ s = 7 TeV. The analysis is based on endpoint determinations in kine-matic distributions. When(More)
Search for supersymmetry in hadronic final states with missing transverse energy using the variables α T and b-quark multiplicity in pp collisions at √ s = 8 TeV Abstract An inclusive search for supersymmetric processes that produce final states with jets and missing transverse energy is performed in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV. The(More)
A search for the resonant production of high-mass photon pairs is presented. The analysis is based on samples of proton-proton collision data collected by the CMS experiment at center-of-mass energies of 8 and 13 TeV, corresponding to integrated luminosities of 19.7 and 3.3  fb^{-1}, respectively. The interpretation of the search results focuses on spin-0(More)
A recently developed detection principle for gamma rays offers the prospect of improving the performance of positron emission tomographic scanners. This detection principle is based on the use of BaF2 scintillator and photosensitive wire chambers. We present technical results obtained with a prototype detector. It is shown that the impact point of the gamma(More)
A fully 3D small PET scanner based on a novel detection principle for gamma rays is described. It uses BaF2 scintillator and photosensitive wire chambers. Extensive tests with technical prototypes have shown that such a system will have a detection efficiency for gamma rays comparable with what can be obtained with the more traditional approach, and a(More)
A search for quark compositeness in the form of quark contact interactions, based on hadronic jet pairs (dijets) produced in proton-proton collisions at √s=7 TeV, is described. The data sample of the study corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 2.9 pb(-1) collected with the CMS detector at the LHC. The dijet centrality ratio, which quantifies the(More)
Charged-hadron transverse-momentum and pseudorapidity distributions in proton-proton collisions at square root of s = 7  TeV are measured with the inner tracking system of the CMS detector at the LHC. The charged-hadron yield is obtained by counting the number of reconstructed hits, hit pairs, and fully reconstructed charged-particle tracks. The combination(More)
Abstract–A phantom has been developed for PET/US breast imaging. The phantom reproduces the acoustic and elastic characteristics of human breast tissue, and the different tissues in the phantom can be labeled with 18 F FDG. The phantom was imaged with whole body PET/CT and also with Shear WaveElastography with Supersonic Imagine Aixplorer system. We also(More)
