Title: Search for decays of stopped long-lived particles produced in proton-proton collisions at ?s=8TeV

Abstract: A search has been performed for long-lived particles that could have come to rest within the CMS detector, using the time intervals between LHC beam crossings. The existence of such particles could be deduced from observation of their decays via energy deposits in the CMS calorimeter appearing at times that are well separated from any proton-proton collisions. Using a data set corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 18.6 fb(-1) of 8 TeV proton-proton collisions, and a search interval corresponding to 281 h of trigger livetime, 10 events are observed, with a background prediction of 13.2(-2.5)(+3.6) events. Limits are presented at 95 % confidence level on gluino and top squark production, for over 13 orders of magnitude in the mean proper lifetime of the stopped particle. Assuming a cloud model of R-hadron interactions, a gluino with mass less than or similar to 1000 GeV and a top squark with mass less than or similar to 525 GeV are excluded, for lifetimes between 1 mu s and 1000 s. These results are the most stringent constraints on stopped particles to date.
