Abstract: ATLAS data are used to search for narrow diboson resonances in a dijet final state where each jet is tagged as a boson using jet mass and substructure properties. The data are the 20.3 fb−1 of pp collisions collected in 2012. A search for G → WW /ZZ is performed over the diboson mass range 1.2 < mVV < 3.0TeV. The most significant excess is of approximately 2.5σ at around 2TeV. Limits on σ · B (the production cross section times branching fraction) for this process are reported as a function of the graviton mass.
