In supersymmetric theories of nature the Higgsino fermionic superpartner of the Higgs boson can arise as the lightest standard model superpartner depending on the couplings between the Higgs and supersymmetry breaking sectors. In this Brief Report the production and decay of Higgsino pairs to the Goldstone fermion of supersymmetry breaking and the Higgs boson h, or gauge bosons Z or γ are considered. Relatively clean diboson final states hh, hγ, hZ, Zγ, or ZZ with a large amount of missing energy result. The latter channels provide novel discovery modes for supersymmetry at high energy colliders since events with Z bosons are generally rejected in supersymmetry searches. In addition, final states with real Higgs bosons can potentially provide efficient channels to discover and study a Higgs signal at the Fermilab Tevatron run II.
