Bottom quark and photon

  • Whoandwhatitis by Whoandwhatitis moderator

    This looks like a fantastic Higgs candidate - and a potentially rare event. This one shows a bottom quark tag next to a photon in Normal view.

    I see that the branching ratio for H -> Zγ is around 1 in 62,500!

    This object makes me think that there could have been a Z-boson which decayed to a bottom quark, and subsequently to a jet of particles (of which there may be hints in the tracking chamber).

    Does this look like a good Higgs candidate, and are there any other good resources for this type of decay?
