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...
The first phase of collisions after the LHC restart earlier this year provided CMS with data at the novel energy of 13 TeV, enabling CMS to explore uncharted domains of physics. At the end of this ex...
Proton beams crossed inside each of the CMS and ATLAS detectors 20 million times a second during the 2012 LHC proton–proton run. However, the physics programme of CMS is based on only a small subse...
