Standard model Higgs searches at the tevatron (low mass)

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

We present recent results of the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson searches from the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) and D0 experiments using 1.0-2.1 fb-1 data from proton- antiproton collisions with √s = 1.96 TeV at the Fermilab Tevatron. For Higgs mass (mH) less than 135 GeV/c2 (so-called low mass region), W±H → l±νbb, ZH → l+l-bb, and ZH → ννbb processes are the most sensitive channels and those results are summarized in this report. In addition, a new CDF search based on H → τ+τ- - 2jcts mode is described. Both CDF and DO have found no evidence for the Higgs boson, and therefore set upper limits on the Higgs production cross section. The latest Tevatron combined limits are also presented.
