Searches for Higgs Bosons at LEP 2

The latest results of Higgs boson searches from the four LEP experiments, ALEPH, DELPHI, L3 and OPAL, are reviewed using the data taken in 1996 at center-of-mass energies between 161 and 172 GeV. No signal was observed. The 95% CL combined lower mass limit for the Minimal Standard Model (MSM) Higgs boson has increased from 66 GeV at LEP1 to 77.5 GeV with… CONTINUE READING
