Abstract

​The Standard Model (SM) is very successful at explaining a wide range of phenomena. With the discovery of the Higgs boson, the SM is complete. Yet there are still many questions left unanswered: Why is the Higgs mass so light when it receives radiative corrections up to the Planck scale? What is dark matter? The supersymmetric extension to the SM would provide solutions to these problems. Models of supersymmetry with general gauge-mediated supersymmetry breaking often lead to final states containing photons and large missing transverse momentum. In this talk, I will discuss the searches for supersymmetry in events with photons in proton-proton collisions at √S = 13 TeV at the CMS experiment.
