Radion production at LHC via the process of vector-boson fusion

The possibility of observing the radion in the process of vector-boson fusion at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in proton-proton collisions at the c.m. energy of √s = 14 TeV is studied. A region of kinematical variables where background processes can be suppressed substantially and where the process in which the production of a radion is followed by its decay to two Z bosons can be separated is found. It is shown that the radion could be discovered in the process under study at an energy scale of up to 0.75 TeV at the LHC luminosity of L = 300 fb−1.
