Searches at ATLAS and CMS constrain models of extra dimensions.
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.
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.
The production cross-sections of many new-physics processes are predicted to rise dramatically compared with Run 1.
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.
