The analysis is based on data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb−1 collected by the CMS experiment in proton–proton collisions at √s=8 TeV at the LHC. Events with photons and jets with high transverse momenta are selected and the γ+jet invariant mass distribution is studied to search for a resonance peak. The 95% confidence level upper limits on the product of cross section and branching fraction are evaluated as a function of the excited quark mass. Limits on excited quarks are presented as a function of their mass and coupling strength; masses below 3.5 TeV are excluded at 95% confidence level for unit couplings to their standard model partners. eng Elsevier This is an open access article under the CC BY license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Search for excited quarks in the γ+jet final state in proton–proton collisions at √s=8 TeV Journal article Physics Letters B CMSphysicsphotonjet 738 Text http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.physletb.2014.09.048 publisher version 274 293
