Abstract

The exotic decay modes of non-Standard Model (SM) Higgses in models with extended Higgs sectors have the potential to serve as powerful search channels to explore the space of Two-Higgs Doublet Models (2HDMs). Once kinematically allowed, heavy Higgses could decay into pairs of light non-SM Higgses, or a non-SM Higgs and a SM gauge boson, with branching fractions that quickly dominate those of the conventional decay modes to SM particles. In this study, we focus on the prospects of probing Type-II 2HDMs at the LHC and a future 100 TeV pp collider via exotic decay channels. We study the three prominent exotic decay channels: A → HZ, A → H±W and H± → HW±, and find that a 100-TeV pp collider can probe most of the region of the Type-II 2HDM parameter space that survives current theoretical and experimental constraints with sizable exotic decay branching fraction through these channels, making them complementary to the conventional decay channels for heavy non-SM Higgses.
