Description

The Precision Proton Spectrometer (PPS) is a new subdetector of CMS introduced for the LHC Run 2, which provides a powerful tool for advancing BSM searches. During the seminar, we will discuss the key features of proton reconstruction (alignment and optics calibrations, validation using exclusive dilepton events), and we will present recent results on exclusive ttbar, Z+X production using data recorded in 2017 and WW, ZZ, diphoton production explored using the full LHC Run 2 dataset, illustrating the unique sensitivity which can be achieved using proton tagging.
