We analyze in detail the LHC prospects at the center-of-mass energy of 14 TeV for charged electroweakino searches, decaying to leptons, in compressed supersymmetry scenarios, via exclusive photon-initiated pair production. This provides a potentially increased sensitivity in comparison to inclusive channels, where the background is often overwhelming. We pay particular attention to the challenges that such searches would face in the hostile high pile-up environment of the LHC, giving close… Expand

LHC as a photon-photon collider: bounds on $\Gamma_{X\to\gamma\gamma}$
In the relatively recent CMS data, there is a hint on the existence of a resonance with the mass 28 GeV coupling to muons. Such a resonance should also couple to photons through the fermion loop,Expand

Detection of two-photon exclusive production of supersymmetric pairs at the LHC
The detection of pairs of sleptons, charginos and charged higgs bosons produced via photon-photon fusion at the LHC is studied, assuming a couple of benchmark points of the MSSM model. Due to lowExpand
Detecting Higgs bosons in the bbar b decay channel using forward proton tagging at the LHC
A detailed study is presented of the search for Higgs bosons in the b channel in the central exclusive production process at the LHC. We present results for proton tagging detectors at both 220m andExpand

INTERACTING SUSY PARTICLES AT HADRON COLLIDERS
Non–strongly interacting supersymmetric particles – sleptons, charginos, neutralinos, and charged Higgs bosons – are difficult to detect at the Large Hadron Collider. We therefore examine theExpand

A new window at the LHC: BSM signals using tagged protons
The signature at the LHC of many Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) scenarios is events with large missing energy. If the forward outgoing protons are measured, we show that the production and decay ofExpand
