Search for high mass dilepton resonances in pp collisions at root s=7 TeV with ...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

This Letter presents a search for high mass e+e−e+e− or μ+μ−μ+μ− resonances in pp collisions at View the MathML sources=7 TeV at the LHC. The data were recorded by the ATLAS experiment during 2010 and correspond to a total integrated luminosity of ∼40 pb−1∼40 pb−1. No statistically significant excess above the Standard Model expectation is observed in the search region of dilepton invariant mass above 110 GeV. ...


Search for stable hadronising squarks and gluinos with the ATLAS experiment at ...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

Hitherto unobserved long-lived massive particles with electric and/or colour charge are predicted by a range of theories which extend the Standard Model. In this Letter a search is performed at the ATLAS experiment for slow-moving charged particles produced in proton–proton collisions at 7 TeV centre-of-mass energy at the LHC, using a data-set corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 34 pb−1. No deviations ...


Search for high-mass states with one lepton plus missing transverse momentum in...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

The ATLAS detector is used to search for high-mass states, such as heavy charged gauge bosons (W′,W⁎W′,W⁎), decaying to a charged lepton (electron or muon) and a neutrino. Results are presented based on the analysis of pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36 pb−1. No excess beyond standard model expectations is observed. A W′W′ with sequential standard m...


Measurement of the distributions of event-by-event flow harmonics in lead-lead ...

Castro, Nuno Filipe; Onofre, A.; ATLAS Collaboration

The distributions of event-by-event harmonic flow coefficients v (n) for n = 2- 4 are measured in = 2.76 TeV Pb + Pb collisions using the ATLAS detector at the LHC. The measurements are performed using charged particles with transverse momentum p (T) > 0.5 GeV and in the pseudorapidity range |eta| < 2.5 in a dataset of approximately 7 mu b(-1) recorded in 2010. The shapes of the v (n) distributions suggest that...


Electron and photon energy calibration with the ATLAS detector using LHC Run 1 ...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe; ATLAS Collaboration

This paper presents the electron and photon energy calibration achieved with the ATLAS detector using about 25 fb(-1) of LHC proton-proton collision data taken at centre-of-mass energies of root s = 7 and 8 TeV. The reconstruction of electron and photon energies is optimised using multivariate algorithms. The response of the calorimeter layers is equalised in data and simulation, and the longitudinal profile of...


Measurement of flow harmonics with multi-particle cumulants in Pb plus Pb colli...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe; ATLAS Collaboration

ATLAS measurements of the azimuthal anisotropy in lead-lead collisions at root(NN)-N-S = 2.76 TeV are shown using a dataset of approximately 7 mu b(-1) collected at the LHC in 2010. The measurements are performed for charged particles with transverse momenta 0.5 < p(T) < 20 GeV and in the pseudorapidity range vertical bar eta vertical bar < 2.5. The anisotropy is characterized by the Fourier coefficients, vn, o...


Two-particle Bose–Einstein correlations in pp collisions at s√= 0.9 and 7 TeV m...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

The paper presents studies of Bose--Einstein Correlations (BEC) for pairs of like-sign charged particles measured in the kinematic range pT> 100 MeV and |η|< 2.5 in proton--proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 0.9 and 7 TeV with the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The integrated luminosities are approximately 7 μb−1, 190 μb−1 and 12.4 nb−1 for 0.9 TeV, 7 TeV minimum-bias and 7 TeV h...


Search for the Standard Model Higgs boson produced in association with top quar...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

A search for the Standard Model Higgs boson produced in association with a pair of top quarks, tt¯H, is presented. The analysis uses 20.3 fb−1 of pp collision data at s√ = 8 TeV, collected with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider during 2012. The search is designed for the H to bb¯ decay mode and uses events containing one or two electrons or muons. In order to improve the sensitivity of the search,...


Search for high-mass diboson resonances with boson-tagged jets in proton-proton...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

A search is performed for narrow resonances decaying into WW, WZ, or ZZ boson pairs using 20.3 fb−1 of proton--proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of s√ = 8 TeV recorded with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. Diboson resonances with masses in the range from 1.3 to 3.0 TeV are sought after using the invariant mass distribution of dijets where both jets are tagged as a boson jet, compa...


Analysis of events with b-jets and a pair of leptons of the same charge in pp c...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

An analysis is presented of events containing jets including at least one b-tagged jet, sizeable missing transverse momentum, and at least two leptons including a pair of the same electric charge, with the scalar sum of the jet and lepton transverse momenta being large. A data sample with an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb−1 of pp collisions at s√=8 TeV recorded by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collid...
