Abstract
We report the results on the searches of exclusive production of low- and high-mass pairs with the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV. The analyses comprise the central exclusive $\gamma\gamma$ production, the exclusive two-photon production of dileptons, $e^{+}e^{-}$ and $\mu^{+}\mu^{-}$, and the exclusive two-photon production of $W$ pairs in the asymmetric $e^{\pm}\mu^{\mp}$ decay channel. No diphotons candidates are observed in data and an upper limit on the cross section is set to 1.18 pb with 95% confidence level for $E_{T}(\gamma)>$ 5.5 GeV and $|\eta(\gamma)|<$ 2.5. In the measurement of exclusive dilep...
