Poster Higgs Physics Poster Session

In this poster measurements of fiducial and differential cross sections are presented for Higgs boson production in the diphoton channel at a centre-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s} = 13$. Diphoton candidate events from proton-proton collisions recorded in 2015 and 2016 are analyzed by a fit to the diphoton invariant mass spectrum. The extracted signal yields are corrected for effects of detector inefficiency and resolution and compared to state-of-the-art theoretical predictions. Differential cross sections are also presented, as a function of variables related to the photon kinematics and the jet activity produced in the Higgs boson events.
