Evidence of Wγγ production in pp collisions at s√=8 TeV and limits on anomalous...

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

This Letter reports evidence of triple gauge boson production pp→W(ℓν)γγ+X, which is accessible for the first time with the 8 TeV LHC data set. The fiducial cross section for this process is measured in a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb−1, collected by the ATLAS detector in 2012. Events are selected using the W boson decay to eν or μν as well as requiring two isolated photons. T...


Search for Higgs Boson Pair Production in the γγbb¯ Final State using pp Collis...

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

Searches are performed for resonant and non-resonant Higgs boson pair production in the hh→γγbb¯ final state using 20 fb−1 of proton--proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 8TeV recorded with the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. A 95% confidence level upper limit on the cross section times branching ratio of non--resonant production is set at 2.2 pb, while the expected limit is 1.0 pb....

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

A search is presented for the direct pair production of a chargino and a neutralino pp→χ~±1χ~02, where the chargino decays to the lightest neutralino and the W boson, χ~±1→χ~01(W±→ℓ±ν), while the neutralino decays to the lightest neutralino and the 125 GeV Higgs boson, χ~02→χ~01(h→bb/γγ/ℓ±νqq). The final states considered for the search have large missing transverse momentum, an isolated electron or muon, and o...


Search for type-III Seesaw heavy leptons in pp collisions at s√=8 TeV with the ...

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

A search for the pair-production of heavy leptons (N0,L±) predicted by the type-III seesaw theory formulated to explain the origin of small neutrino masses is presented. The decay channels N0→W±l∓ (ℓ=e,μ,τ) and L±→W±ν (ν=νe,νμ,ντ) are considered. The analysis is performed using the final state that contains two leptons (electrons or muons), two jets from a hadronically decaying W boson, and large missing transv...


Search for vector-like B quarks in events with one isolated lepton, missing tra...

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

A search has been performed for pair production of heavy vector-like down-type (B) quarks. The analysis explores the lepton-plus-jets final state, characterized by events with one isolated charged lepton (electron or muon), significant missing transverse momentum and multiple jets. One or more jets are required to be tagged as arising from b-quarks, and at least one pair of jets must be tagged as arising from t...


Measurement of the top pair production cross-section in 8 TeV proton-proton col...

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

A measurement is presented of the tt¯ inclusive production cross section in pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of s√=8  TeV using data collected by the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The measurement was performed in the lepton+jets final state using a data set corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.3  fb−1. The cross section was obtained using a likelihood discriminant fit and ...


Search for photonic signatures of gauge-mediated supersymmetry in 8 TeV pp coll...

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

A search is presented for photonic signatures motivated by generalised models of gauge-mediated supersymmetry breaking. This search makes use of 20.3 fb−1 of proton-proton collision data at s√=8 TeV recorded by the ATLAS detector at the LHC, and explores models dominated by both strong and electroweak production of supersymmetric partner states. Four experimental signatures incorporating an isolated photon and ...


Search for a CP-odd Higgs boson decaying to Zh in pp collisions at s=8TeV with ...

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

A search for a heavy, CP-odd Higgs boson, A, decaying into a Z boson and a 125 GeV Higgs boson, h, with the ATLAS detector at the LHC is presented. The search uses proton–proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb−1. Decays of CP-even h bosons to ττ or bb pairs with the Z boson decaying to electron or muon pairs are considered, as well as h→bbh...


Measurement of the branching ratio Γ(Λ0b→ψ(2S)Λ0)/Γ(Λ0b→J/ψΛ0) with the ATLAS d...

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

An observation of the Λ0b→ψ(2S)Λ0 decay and a comparison of its branching fraction with that of the Λ0b→J/ψΛ0 decay has been made with the ATLAS detector in proton--proton collisions at s√=8TeV at the LHC using an integrated luminosity of 20.6fb−1. The J/ψ and ψ(2S) mesons are reconstructed in their decays to a muon pair, while the Λ0→pπ− decay is exploited for the Λ0 baryon reconstruction. The Λ0b baryons are ...


Measurements of the top quark branching ratios into channels with leptons and q...

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

A measurement of the inclusive cross section for top quark pair production in pp collisions using events with an isolated lepton (muon or electron) and a τ lepton decaying to hadrons (τhad) is reported. Measurements of the branching ratios of top quark decays into leptons and jets using events with tt¯ (top antitop) pairs are also reported. Events were recorded with the ATLAS detector at the LHC in pp collision...
