Search for new phenomena in high-mass diphoton final states using 37 fb −1 of proton-proton collisions collected at √ s = 13 TeV with the ATLAS detector .The ATLAS Collaboration a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t Searches for new phenomena in high-mass diphoton final states with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC are presented. The analysis is based on pp collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36.7 fb −1 at a centre-of-mass energy √ s = 13 TeV recorded in 2015 and 2016.

Searches are performed for resonances with spin 0, as predicted by theories with an extended Higgs sector, and for resonances with spin 2, using a warped extra-dimension model as a benchmark model, as well as for non-resonant signals, assuming a large extra-dimension scenario. No significant deviation from the Standard Model is observed. Upper limits are placed on the production cross section times branching ratio to two photons as a function of the resonance mass. In addition, lower limits are set on the ultraviolet cutoff scale in the large extra-dimensions model.
