Title: Colored SUSY and R-hadron Physics in Atlas

Abstract

We summarize the strategy for searching and understanding for the R- parity conserving SUSY particles at the ATLAS detector at LHC. Results are focused on the mass reconstruction of SUSY particles, especially for the colored SUSY particles, which is critical for understanding SUSY-QCD physics. Also the ATLAS detector has good potential to discover R-hadrons, and the search strategy for this will be summarized.

  • We consider the production of squarks and gluinos at hadronic colliders. An overview over the class of processes is given. We investigate in detail the tree-level and higher order EW contributions to the cross sections. Special care has to be taken to obtain infrared finite observables. We study numerically stop--anti-stop and squark-gluino production at the LHC.
  • New R[sub 2]BaCoO[sub 5] oxides (R = rare earth) have been prepared in Ar flow, and the X-ray diffraction data reveal that they crystallize in the Nd[sub 2]BaNiO[sub 5] structural type (space group Immm). The existence of dimorphism has been shown for R = Dy, Ho, Er, and Tm. A comparative study of the influence of the rare earth size on the structural parameters is presented for this family of compounds. The relative stability of these oxides is discussed from the variation of the so-called global instability index (GII) calculated using the bond valence method. The GII values around 0.2more » v.u. are indicative of the high stress present in this structure. The magnetic properties of these oxides have been studied from magnetic susceptibility measurements and one-dimensional antiferromagnetic correlations in the Co[sup +2] sublattice are presented around the room temperature, while three-dimensional antiferromagnetic interactions in both R[sup +3] and Co[sup +2] sublattices have been observed at lower temperatures (T[sub Neel] < 40 K) in this family of oxides. This behavior is explained considering the crystal structure of these compounds and the electronic states of the Co[sup +2] and R[sup +3] cations.« less
  • A search for pair-produced scalar particles decaying to a four-jet final state is presented. The analysis is performed using an integrated luminosity of 34 pb{sup -1} recorded by the ATLAS detector in 2010. No deviation from the Standard Model is observed. For a scalar mass of 100 GeV (190 GeV) the limit on the scalar gluon pair production cross section at 95% confidence level is 1 nb (0.28 nb). When these results are interpreted as mass limits, scalar-gluons (hyperpions) with masses of 100 to 185 GeV (100 to 155 GeV) are excluded at 95% confidence level with the exception ofmore » a mass window of width about 5 GeV (15 GeV) around 140 GeV.« less

  • We discuss an optimal {ital R}-parity-breaking SUSY solution to the {ital R}{sub {ital b}} excess as well as the ALEPH four-jet anomaly. The latter arises from the pair production of a top squark via chargino decay at CERN LEP 1.5, followed by its {ital R}-violating decay into a light quark pair. The model satisfies top quark and {ital Z}-boson decay constraints along with gaugino mass unification. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}
