Abstract [en]

A direct search for Higgs bosons produced via vector-boson fusion andsubsequently decaying into invisible particles is reported. The analysis uses 139 fb−1of pp collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of √s = 13 TeV recorded by the ATLASdetector at the LHC. The observed numbers of events are found to be in agreement withthe background expectation from Standard Model processes. For a scalar Higgs bosonwith a mass of 125 GeV and a Standard Model production cross section, an observed upperlimit of 0.145 is placed on the branching fraction of its decay into invisible particles at 95%confidence level, with an expected limit of 0.103. These results are interpreted in the contextof models where the Higgs boson acts as a portal to dark matter, and limits are set onthe scattering cross section of weakly interacting massive particles and nucleons. Invisibledecays of additional scalar bosons with masses from 50 GeV to 2 TeV are also studied,and the derived upper limits on the cross section times branching fraction decrease withincreasing mass from 1.0 pb for a scalar boson mass of 50 GeV to 0.1 pb at a mass of 2 TeV.
