Gauge Mediation in the NMSSM with a Light Singlet: Sparticles within the Reach of LHC Run II
Relatively light stops in gauge mediation models are usually made compatible
with the Higgs mass of 125 GeV by introducing direct Higgs-messenger couplings.
We show that such couplings are not necessary in a simple and predictive model
that combines minimal gauge mediation and the next-to-minimal supersymmetric
standard model (NMSSM). We show that one can obtain a 125 GeV Standard
Model-like Higgs boson with stops as light as 1.1 TeV, thanks to the mixing of
the Higgs with a singlet state at
