Several models of new physics, including split supersymmetry, predict the existence of a heavy particle, which is long-lived on the timescales of the bunch spacing of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Such a particle would be observable using the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) at the LHC, and although produced at high momentum, it would travel slowly due to its large mass. We describe a search for these particles, using the experimental techniques of time of flight and dE/dx measurement. Results are presented based on data recorded with CMS in 2011.
