Particle Physics Seminar

"Off the beaten track: Unconventional Searches at the LHC"

Presented by Karri DiPetrillo, Fermilab

Thursday, February 11, 2021, 3:00 pm — Videoconference / Virtual Event (see link below)

Abstract: Our best hope for a beyond the Standard Model discovery at the LHC requires breaking long-held assumptions about how to look for new physics. In this talk, I will discuss some of the unconventional signatures motivated by models with a dark QCD sector. Predicted signatures range from jets in which displaced tracks appear to emerge from a dark sector, to events with many spherically distributed soft charged particles. Common themes in many of these searches are challenges in triggering and offline reconstruction. I will discuss some of these challenges and recent progress on the hunt to discover new physics at the LHC. I will also touch on ways to expand our potential to look for such unconventional signatures in the future.
