Measurements of fiducial cross-sections for t(t)over-bar production with one or...

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

Fiducial cross-sections for tˉt production with one or two additional b-jets are reported, using an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb−1 of proton–proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV at the Large Hadron Collider, collected with the ATLAS detector. The cross-section times branching ratio for tˉt events with at least one additional b-jet is measured to be 950 ± 70 (stat.) +240−190 (syst.) fb in th...


Study of the rare decays of Bs0 and B0 into muon pairs from data collected duri...

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

A study of the decays B0s→μ+μ− and B0→μ+μ− has been performed using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 25 fb−1 of 7 and 8 TeV proton–proton collisions collected with the ATLAS detector during the LHC Run 1. For the B0 dimuon decay, an upper limit on the branching fraction is set at B(B0→μ+μ−)<4.2×10−10 at 95 % confidence level. For B0s, the branching fraction B(B0s→μ+μ−)=(0.9+1.1−0.8)×10−9 is mea...

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

A search for single top-quark production via flavour-changing neutral current processes from gluon plus up- or charm-quark initial states in proton–proton collisions at the LHC is presented. Data collected with the ATLAS detector in 2012 at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb−1 are used. Candidate events for a top quark decaying into a lepton, a neutrino and...


Measurement of the differential cross-sections of prompt and non-prompt product...

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

The production rates of prompt and non-prompt J/ψ and ψ(2S) mesons in their dimuon decay modes are measured using 2.1 and 11.4 fb−1 of data collected with the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, in proton–proton collisions at √s=7 and 8 respectively. Production cross-sections for prompt as well as non-prompt sources, ratios of ψ(2S) to J/ψ production, and the fractions of non-prompt production for J/...


Measurement of the photon identification efficiencies with the ATLAS detector u...

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

The algorithms used by the ATLAS Collaboration to reconstruct and identify prompt photons are described. Measurements of the photon identification efficiencies are reported, using 4.9 fb−1 of pp collision data collected at the LHC at √s=7 TeV and 20.3 fb−1 at √s=8 TeV. The efficiencies are measured separately for converted and unconverted photons, in four different pseudorapidity regions, for transverse momenta...


Search for strong gravity in multijet final states produced in pp collisions at...

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

A search is performed for the production of high-mass resonances decaying into a photon and a jet in 3.2 fb−1 of proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of s√=13 TeV collected by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. Selected events have an isolated photon and a jet, each with transverse momentum above 150 GeV. No significant deviation of the γ+jet invariant mass distribution from the bac...


Search for charged Higgs bosons in the H-+/- -> tb decay channel in pp collisio...

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

Charged Higgs bosons heavier than the top quark and decaying via H± → tb are searched for in proton-proton collisions measured with the ATLAS experiment at s√=8 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.3fb−1. The production of a charged Higgs boson in association with a top quark, gb → tH±, is explored in the mass range 200 to 600 GeV using multi-jet final states with one electron or muon. In order t...


Charged-particle distributions in s=13 TeV pp interactions measured with the AT...

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

Charged-particle distributions are measured in proton–proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, using a data sample of nearly 9 million events, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 170 μb−1170 μb−1, recorded by the ATLAS detector during a special Large Hadron Collider fill. The charged-particle multiplicity, its dependence on transverse momentum and pseudorapidity and the dependence of the...


Observation of Long-Range Elliptic Azimuthal Anisotropies in s =13 and 2.76 TeV...

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

ATLAS has measured two-particle correlations as a function of the relative azimuthal angle, Δϕ, and pseudorapidity, Δη, in s√=13 and 2.76 TeV pp collisions at the LHC using charged particles measured in the pseudorapidity interval |η|<2.5. The correlation functions evaluated in different intervals of measured charged-particle multiplicity show a multiplicity-dependent enhancement at Δϕ∼0 that extends over a wid...

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

The decays B+c→J/ψD+s and B+c→J/ψD∗+s are studied with the ATLAS detector at the LHC using a dataset corresponding to integrated luminosities of 4.9 and 20.6 fb−1 of pp collisions collected at centre-of-mass energies √s=7 TeV and 8 TeV, respectively. Signal candidates are identified through J/ψ→μ+μ− and D(∗)+s→ϕπ+(γ/π0) decays. With a two-dimensional likelihood fit involving the B+c reconstructed invariant mass...
