Description

We discuss prospects for SUSY searches with signatures involving two photons in the CMS experiment. We describe methodologies for such searches, as well as tests of data-driven background methods using early 7 TeV data samples. These methods are designed to establish the level of QCD background in the tail of the MET distribution.
