Discussing 125 GeV and 95 GeV excess in Light Radion Model



Even if the LHC observations are consistent with the Standard model (SM), current LHC results are not precise enough to rule out the presence of new physics. Taking a contrarian view of the SM Higgs fandom, we look out for a more suitable candidate for the 125 GeV boson observed at the LHC. At the same time, a recent result from CMS hints towards an excess near 95 GeV in the diphoton ($\\gamma \\gamma$) channel. Given these aspects, we revisit the Higgs-radion mixing model to explore the viability of the radion mixed Higgs to be the 125 GeV boson along with the presence of a light radion (to be precise Higgs mixed radion) that can show up in future experiments in the $\\gamma \\gamma$ channel. We find that the mixed radion-Higgs scenario gives a better fit than the SM, with the radion mixed Higgs as a more suitable 125 GeV scalar candidate. It also gives rise to a diphoton excess from the light radion, consistent with the LHC observations.
