Resumo

A search for pair-production of first generation scalar leptoquarks is performed in the final state containing an electron, a neutrino, and at least two jets using proton-proton collision data at root s = 7 TeV. The data were collected by the CMS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36 pb(-1). The number of observed events is in good agreement with the predictions for standard model processes. Prior CMS results in the dielectron channel are combined with this electron + neutrino search. A 95% confidence level combined lower limit is set on the mass of a first generation scalar leptoquark at 339 GeV for beta = 0.5, where beta is the branching fraction of the leptoquark to an electron and a quark. These results represent the most stringent direct limits to date for values of beta greater than 0.05. (C) 2011 CERN. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
