Subject: Search for new physics in the di-photon decay channel at CMS

Numerous new physics models predict the existence of heavy resonances decaying into pairs of photons. In the harsh environment at the LHC, the di-photon decay channel is one of the cleanest experimental signatures. This talk presents a search for physics beyond the standard model in the di-photon final state at CMS, focusing on the recent results obtained using data collected during the 2015 run of the LHC.
