Abstract (data abstract)
CERN-LHC. The production of $Z$ bosons in association with a high energy photon ($Z\gamma$ production) is studied in the neutrino decay channel of the $Z$ boson using $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV. The analysis uses a data sample with an integrated luminosity of 36.1~fb$^{-1}$ collected by the ATLAS detector in 2015 and 2016. $Z\gamma$ events with invisible decays of the $Z$ boson are selected by requiring significant missing transverse energy ($E_{\mathrm{T}}^{\mathrm{miss}}$) in conjunction with a single isolated photon with large transverse energy ($E_{\mathrm{T}}$). The rate of $Z\gamma$ production is measured as a function of photon $E_{\mathrm{T}}$, $E_{\mathrm{T}}^{\mathrm{miss}}$ and jet multiplicity. Evidence for anomalous triple gauge coupling is sought in $Z\gamma$ production with photon $E_{\mathrm{T}}$ greater than 600 GeV. No excess is observed relative to the Standard Model expectation, and upper limits are set on the strength of $ZZ\gamma$ and $Z\gamma\gamma$ couplings. The extended fiducial region is defined as: - ptPhoton > 150 GeV - ptNuNubar > 150 GeV - |etaPhoton| < 2.37 - ptJet > 50 GeV - |etaJet| < 4.5 - min(DeltaR(jet,photon)) > 0.3; - Inclusive selection: Njets>=0; Exclusive selection: Njets=0.
