Abstract [en]

This article describes the measurements of the Higgs boson properties in the H → WW(*) → ℓvℓv (ℓ = e,μ) decay mode using the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The results are obtained using the proton-proton collisions dataset which corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 20.7 fb-1 at a centre of mass energy of 8 TeV and 4.6 fb-1 at 7 TeV. An excess over the expected number of background events is observed in the data. The significance of the excess for the Higgs boson with a mass of 125 GeV is estimated to be 3.8 standard deviations, while the expected value is 3.7. The signal strength μ, defined as a ratio of the cross-section for the observed signal to the cross section predicted for a Standard Model Higgs boson with a mass of 125 GeV, is measured to be μ = 1.01 ±0.31. The results obtained by including the H → WW(*) → ℓvℓv channel where the Higgs boson is produced in association with aWoraZ boson which decay leptonically are also reported. Finally, results of the searches for resonances up to 1 TeV are briefly summarised. An additional signal with the Standard Model like production cross-section and couplings is excluded in the range 260 < mH < 642 GeV.
