No result at ICHEP 2016 was more highly anticipated than the updates on the 750 GeV diphoton resonance hinted at in data from the ATLAS and CMS experiments in 2015.
The search for new physics in 13 TeV proton collisions continues in earnest, with six new results presented at LHCP.
The production cross-sections of many new-physics processes are predicted to rise dramatically compared with Run 1.
As a monopole approaches a coil its magnetic charge drives an electrical current which continues to flow after the monopole has passed if the wire is superconducting.
ATLAS exploited the optimised boson tagging in the search for heavy resonances decaying into a pair of two electroweak gauge bosons (WW, WZ, ZZ) or of a gauge boson and a Higgs boson (WH, ZH).
With the increase in the LHC centre-of-mass energy from 8 to 13 TeV, the production cross-section for hypothetical SUSY partners rises.
Squarks and gluinos would decay to quarks and the undetectable LSP, producing an excess of events with energetic jets and missing transverse momentum.
A little-known fact is that the last three days of Run 1 were reserved for relatively low-energy proton–proton collisions at 2.76 TeV.
The go-ahead to prepare a Comprehensive Design Report is received.
Since the first ATLAS results from LHC Run 2 were presented at this summer’s conferences (EPS-HEP 2015 and LHCP 2015) with an amount of data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of approxima...
