ATLAS search for dark matter in events with an energetic jet and large transverse missing momentum.

29 November 2018

Time: 3:00 - 4:00pm
Speaker: Katharina Bierwagen, Mainz
Venue: G.O. Jones, room 410

Abstract:  Cosmological and astrophysical observations indicate the presence of Dark Matter in the universe which cannot be explained by the Standard Model.  Searches for Dark Matter are performed by both the ATLAS and CMS experiment in events involving large missing transverse momentum in the final state. So far no signal for physics beyond the Standard Model has been found.
An overview of the most recent results by the ATLAS collaboration based on the full proton-proton collision dataset collected at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV in 2015 and 2016 will be presented. A major focus is on
the search for DM in final states with an energetic jet and large missing transverse momentum. In addition, the prospects for the future will be discussed.Slides: https://indico.ph.qmul.ac.uk/indico/conferenceDisplay.py?confId=395
