A search for new physics with a three photon final state has been performed using data from the Compact Muon Solenoid detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The integrated luminosity was 12.3 fb⁻¹ recorded in 2012 at centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV. No significant narrow resonance in the diphoton spectrum is observed in the mass range of 220 — 600 GeV. The 95% confidence level limits on the cross section times branching ratio times acceptance are presented.
A Dissertation submitted to the Department of Physics in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy.
