Description

We present the results of searches for Supersymmetry in various topologies that lead to final states with jets, missing transverse momentum and one or two photons or a photon and a lepton. These searches are performed using data collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC in pp-collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. Various data-driven techniques used to measure the Standard Model backgrounds are discussed. The results are interpreted in General Gauge Mediated Supersymmetry breaking models.
