Particle Physics Seminar

"Physics with Taus at ATLAS"

Presented by Sarah Demers

Thursday, July 14, 2016, 3:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Tau leptons are notoriously difficult particles to work with in the environment of a hadron collider due to their short lifetime and heavy enough mass for semi-hadronic decay. In this talk I will present the physics motivation for working with taus in spite of the challenges.
And I will describe the work my group is involved with, from the first measurement of tau polarization at a hadron collider, to Higgs-tagging and searches for heavy, exotic particles. I will also describe the landscape for physics with taus at ATLAS as we look into Run2 and beyond.
