Z γ Limits on Neutral Anomalous Coupling in 5/fb of ppbar Collisions at √s=1.96 TeV |
We have measured (Z → l^{+}l^{-})+γ production with central photons using electronic and muonicZ decays. We have also studied invisible (Z →νν )+γ using photons and missing transverse energy. A study of potential anomalous couplings between Z's and photons is performed. Limits are placed on the four CP-conserving couplings (h_{3}^{Z},h_{3}^{γ},h_{4}^{Z},h_{4}^{γ}) using 5 fb^{-1} of data. This is the first measurement of its kind in Z → llγ events at CDF since an analysis performed using 1 fb^{-1} of electron candidate data and 2 fb^{-1} of muon candidate data; improvement is witnessed as this is a statistics-limited measurement.
