# Are there any models for two light Higgs?

The LHC results today seem to have two possible Higgs peaks, one at 119 GeV and the other at 125-126 GeV. All the multi-Higgs supersymmetry models I've seen that have multiple Higgs have only one light Higgs, the others being well over 600 GeV.

While I think it's unlikely that there really are two distinct peaks, that would certainly be the most interesting result from ATLAS and CMS.

Are there any extant models with two light Higgs that are close in energy but distinct?

Great question! I have not heard of any such models, but I don't know the field well enough to categorically say "no," so I'll see if anyone else can chime in with more confidence. – David Z Dec 13 '11 at 16:46

The Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model, or MSSM, uses two Higgs doublets which – after the "eating" of 3 out of 8 real polarizations by the $W^+,W^-,Z^0$ bosons – leave 5 physical polarizations of the Higgs. Two of them are electrically charged, $H^\pm$, and three of them are neutral. One of the three neutral ones is CP-odd, $A$, and the other two are CP-even, $h$ and $H$.
The $h$ boson is the lighter one and has to be below 135 GeV or so. The $H$ boson is heavier and may be anywhere above 135 GeV or so. It's true that models where the heavier Higgs is vastly heavier are recently favored in literature, for various reasons, but that doesn't follow from supersymmetry. Supersymmetry could work with two Higgses at 125 and 244 GeV (if I borrow another 2-sigma bump from ATLAS), among many other options.
