Title: Quest for a Top Quark Partner and Upgrade of the Pixel Detector Readout Chain at the CMS

Abstract

After the observation of a new particle at CERN experiments, which is consistent with being the Higgs boson, the partner of the top quark is the most anticipated candidate to be discovered next. In many extensions of the standard model of particle physics the principle of naturalness dictates that the top quark partner should exist and be relatively light, at or below the TeV scale. It is hence expected to be accessible at energies and luminosities provided by the LHC machine within the next years of running. This proposal calls for supporting the effort targeting the searches for the top quark partner at the CMS experiment. We focus on scenarios and techniques that have not yet been fully explored at CMS, and that carry a large potential for new physics discovery in the immediate future. The second part of the proposal focuses on the R&D effort aiming for continuing high-quality physics program at the CMS at the high instantaneous luminosities. We propose to take one of the leading roles in the forthcoming upgrade of the Pixel detector at the CMS, and upgrade the data acquisition readout chain that would increase the data volume throughput for the new detector.
