Search for a Heavy Neutral Particle Decaying to eμ, eτ, or μτ in pp Collisions ...

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

This Letter presents a search for a heavy neutral particle decaying into an opposite-sign different-flavor dilepton pair, e±μ∓, e±τ∓, or μ±τ∓ using 20.3 fb−1 of pp collision data at s√=8 TeV collected by the ATLAS detector at the LHC. The numbers of observed candidate events are compatible with the Standard Model expectations. Limits are set on the cross section of new phenomena in two scenarios: the production...


Search for the Xb and other hidden-beauty states in the π+π-ϒ{hooked}(1S) chann...

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

This Letter presents a search for a hidden-beauty counterpart of the X(3872) in the mass ranges 10.05--10.31 GeV and 10.40--11.00 GeV, in the channel Xb→π+π−Υ(1S)(→μ+μ−), using 16.2 fb−1 of s√=8 TeV pp collision data collected by the ATLAS detector at the LHC. No evidence for new narrow states is found, and upper limits are set on the product of the Xb cross section and branching fraction, relative to those of ...


Search for Dark Matter in Events with Missing Transverse Momentum and a Higgs B...

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

Results of a search for new phenomena in events with large missing transverse momentum and a Higgs boson decaying to two photons are reported. Data from proton--proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb−1 have been collected with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. The observed data are well described by the expected Standard Model backgrounds. Upp...


Measurement of the production of neighbouring jets in lead-lead collisions at √...

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

This Letter presents measurements of correlated production of nearby jets in Pb+Pb collisions at sNN−−−√=2.76 TeV using the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The measurement was performed using 0.14 nb−1 of data recorded in 2011. The production of correlated jet pairs was quantified using the rate, RΔR, of ``neighbouring'' jets that accompany ``test'' jets within a given range of angular distance, ΔR...


Search for high-mass diphoton resonances in pp collisions at s =8TeV with the A...

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

This article describes a search for high-mass resonances decaying to a pair of photons using a sample of 20.3  fb−1 of pp collisions at s√=8  TeV recorded with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The data are found to be in agreement with the Standard Model prediction, and limits are reported in the framework of the Randall-Sundrum model. This theory leads to the prediction of graviton states, the ...

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

Results of a search for new phenomena in events with an energetic photon and large missing transverse momentum with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC are reported. Data were collected in proton--proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb−1. The observed data are well described by the expected Standard Model backgrounds. The expected (observed) upper...


Search for Higgs bosons decaying to aa in the μμττ final state in pp collisions...

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

A search for the decay to a pair of new particles of either the 125 GeV Higgs boson (h) or a second CP-even Higgs boson (H) is presented. The dataset correspods to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb−1 of pp collisions at s√= 8 TeV recorded by the ATLAS experiment at the LHC in 2012. The search was done in the context of the next-to-minimal supersymmetric standard model, in which the new particles are the light...


Search for Scalar-Charm Pair Production in pp Collisions at s√=8 TeV with the A...

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

The results of a dedicated search for pair production of scalar partners of charm quarks are reported. The search is based on an integrated luminosity of 20.3fb−1 of pp collisions at s√=8 TeV recorded with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. The search is performed using events with large missing transverse momentum and at least two jets, where the two leading jets are each tagged as originating from c-quarks. Event...


Search for new phenomena in the dijet mass distribution using pp collision data...

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

Dijet events produced in LHC proton--proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy s√=8 TeV are studied with the ATLAS detector using the full 2012 data set, with an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb−1. Dijet masses up to about 4.5 TeV are probed. No resonance-like features are observed in the dijet mass spectrum. Limits on the cross section times acceptance are set at the 95% credibility level for various hypoth...


Search for W'→tb- in the lepton plus jets final state in proton-proton collisio...

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

A search for new charged massive gauge bosons, called W′, is performed with the ATLAS detector at the LHC, in proton--proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of s√ = 8 TeV, using a dataset corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb−1. This analysis searches for W′ bosons in the W′→tb¯ decay channel in final states with electrons or muons, using a multivariate method based on boosted decision tree...
