Diphoton final state is one of the most sensitive channels to a Higgs search in the low mass region (115GeV-140GeV). The analysis is optimized to search for a Standard Model (SM) Higgs and dominates the SM Higgs combination in the mass range lower than 120GeV. Nevertheless, an inclusive search strategy adopted is also sensitive to find a low mass diphoton resonance that could be predicted by some new physics models.
