Limits for Excited ${{\boldsymbol e}}$ (${{\boldsymbol e}^{*}}$) from Single Production INSPIRE search

These limits are from ${{\mathit e}^{+}}$ ${{\mathit e}^{-}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}^{*}}{{\mathit e}}$ , ${{\mathit W}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}^{*}}{{\mathit \nu}}$ , or ${{\mathit e}}$ ${{\mathit p}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}^{*}}$ X and depend on transition magnetic coupling between ${{\mathit e}}$ and ${{\mathit e}^{*}}$. All limits assume ${{\mathit e}^{*}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}}{{\mathit \gamma}}$ decay except as noted. Limits from LEP, UA2, and H1 are for chiral coupling, whereas all other limits are for nonchiral coupling, ${{\mathit \eta}_{{L}}}$ = ${{\mathit \eta}_{{R}}}$ = 1. In most papers, the limit is expressed in the form of an excluded region in the $\lambda −{\mathit m}_{{{\mathit e}^{*}}}$ plane. See the original papers.

For limits prior to 1987, see our 1992 edition (Physical Review D45 S1 (1992)).

1  AAD 2015AP search for ${{\mathit e}^{*}}$ production in evens with three or more charged leptons in ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit p}}$ collisions at $\sqrt {s }$ = 8 TeV. The quoted limit assumes ${{\mathit \Lambda}}$ = ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit e}^{*}}}$, ${{\mathit f}}$ = ${{\mathit f}^{\,'}}$ = 1. The contact interaction is included in the ${{\mathit e}^{*}}$ production and decay amplitudes.
2  KHACHATRYAN 2016AQ search for single ${{\mathit e}^{*}}$ production in ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit p}}$ collisions at $\sqrt {s }$ = 8 TeV. The limit above is from the ${{\mathit e}^{*}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}}{{\mathit \gamma}}$ search channel assuming ${{\mathit f}}$ = ${{\mathit f}^{\,'}}$ = 1, ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit e}^{*}}}$ = $\Lambda $. See their Table 7 for limits in other search channels or with different assumptions.
3  AAD 2013BB search for single ${{\mathit e}^{*}}$ production in ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit p}}$ collisions with ${{\mathit e}^{*}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}}{{\mathit \gamma}}$ decay. ${{\mathit f}}$ = ${{\mathit f}^{\,'}}$ = 1, and ${{\mathit e}^{*}}$ production via contact interaction with ${{\mathit \Lambda}}$ = ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit e}^{*}}}$ are assumed.
4  CHATRCHYAN 2013AE search for single ${{\mathit e}^{*}}$ production in ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit p}}$ collisions with ${{\mathit e}^{*}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}}{{\mathit \gamma}}$ decay. ${{\mathit f}}$ = ${{\mathit f}^{\,'}}$ = 1, and ${{\mathit e}^{*}}$ production via contact interaction with ${{\mathit \Lambda}}$ = ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit e}^{*}}}$ are assumed.
5  AAD 2012AZ search for ${{\mathit e}^{*}}$ production via four-fermion contact interaction in ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit p}}$ collisions with ${{\mathit e}^{*}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}}{{\mathit \gamma}}$ decay. The quoted limit assumes ${{\mathit \Lambda}}$ = ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit e}^{*}}}$. See their Fig. 8 for the exclusion plot in the mass-coupling plane.
