Physics with ATLAS

This proposal outlines a continuing program of work of the Stockholm University group on the ATLAS experiment at the LHC, which is scheduled to first take data Autumn 2009. The group´s proposed work comprises early data exploitation, hardware maintenance and upgrade development work, together with outreach activities. Building on our longstanding expertise, we shall make precision measurements of multilepton processes, thereby providing a test of the Standard Model in the new LHC energy regime and gaining sensitivity to exotic physics processes predicted in, eg, models of supersymmetry. We will also perform direct searches for physics processes beyond the Standard Model in the form of exotic stable massive particles which interact in the detector. We shall provide maintenance for those hardware components for which we have taken part in the design, construction and commissiong, namely the Tile Calorimeter read-out electronics and First Level Calorimeter Trigger. We also propose a program of work for the upgrades of the aforementioned subsystems. The sums requested cover partial salary cost for the principal applicant and travelling and subsistence costs for members of the SU ATLAS group and hardware maintenance and development costs. In addition, funding for new Ph.D. students is sought in order to help the group maintain our competitive advantage in our specialist analysis areas.

Atlas – simulating Big Bang in search of the Higgs particle and nature beyond the Standard Model
Svensk sammanfattningDagens partikelfysiska teorier kan bara delvis beskriva hur universum fungerar. Gravitation och uppkomsten av massa och mörk materia kan inte förklaras. Dessutom har Higgspartikeln, som förklarar varför andra partiklar har en viss massa, aldrig observerats. I en gigantisk ...
