Higgs invisible and rare decays at ILC

29 Jul 2021, 10:04


Parallel session talk Higgs Physics T09: Higgs Physics


Chris Potter (University of Oregon)


The operation of an e+e- collider at a CM energy of 250 GeV will yield a large sample of Higgs bosons that are tagged by recoil against an observed Z boson at a fixed laboratory energy. By selecting these Z bosons and looking on the other side of the event, e+e- colliders will be sensitive to essentially all possible rare and exotic Higgs boson decay channels, in most cases down to branching ratios of order 10^{-4}. This includes channels important for theories beyond the Standard Model such as H-> b bbar + (missing energy) and H-> b sbar that are very difficult to observe at the LHC. This talk will review the expectations for the discovery of new decay modes of the Higgs boson at the International Linear Collider.
