Silicon, Straws, and SUSY:Searches for Supersymmetry featuring the ATLAS Inner Detector
Date: MONDAY, February 27th, 2017
Speaker: Laura Jeanty, Lawrence BerkeleyNational Laboratory, Berkeley, CA
The keystone of the standard model of particle physics, the Higgs Boson, was discovered during the first run of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The LHC is halfway through its second run, with higher energy and higher intensity collisions providing a dataset ripe for discovery of physics beyond the standard model. Supersymmetry remains a promising theory for new physics accessible at the LHC. The inner tracking detector plays a crucial role in many searches for supersymmetry on the ATLAS experiment. In this talk, I will discuss the current status and outlook of supersymmetry searches by ATLAS, with a focus on the different ways in which the inner detector extends our sensitivity to new particles.
