Title
Search for first generation scalar leptoquarks in the channel in pp collisions at = 7 TeV
Author
Abstract
A search for pair-production of first generation scalar leptoquarks is performed in the final state containing an electron, a neutrino, and at least two jets using protonproton collision data at View the MathML source. The data were collected by the CMS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36 pb−1. The number of observed events is in good agreement with the predictions for standard model processes. Prior CMS results in the dielectron channel are combined with this electron + neutrino search. A 95% confidence level combined lower limit is set on the mass of a first generation scalar leptoquark at 339 GeV for β=0.5, where β is the branching fraction of the leptoquark to an electron and a quark. These results represent the most stringent direct limits to date for values of β greater than 0.05.
