Speaker: Jinrui Huang (UC Irvine, Physics)We present strategies of searching for supersymmetric non-standard decays of the SM-like Higgs bosons at the LHC, motivated by the ''Dark Light Higgs'' scenario. This scenario represents a limit of the nearly-Peccei-Quinn-symmetric NMSSM. It naturally has two light singlet-like Higgs particles and a light singlino-like DM candidate with masses of order 10 GeV or below. In this scenario, the SM-like Higgs bosons are typically decayed dominantly into a pair of neutralinos, allowing themselves to be as light as below 100 GeV. We systematically study the searches of both the SM-like and the light Higgs bosons at the LHC.
