We discuss the LHC sensitivity to top partner production in a model where the Standard Model (SM) is extended by an SU(2) singlet top partner and a SM gauge singlet scalar.
Unlike most searches for top partners which are concerned with three conventional decay modes, Wb, tZ and tH, the decay pattern of the top partner in this model can be significantly altered with new decay modes, gluon + top, photon + top and singlet scalar + top.
We present a new approach to search for a pair-produced top partner that decays to a top quark and a gluon (photon). We give an overview of the various production and decay channels of the top partner and project the sensitivity of the high luminosity LHC.
