ATLAS highlights from LHCP 2023

Over 300 physicists travelled to Belgrade (Serbia) for LHCP’s long-awaited return to in-person gatherings. Scientists from the ATLAS Collaboration presented several new results at the LHCP conference. These newly released results cover a broad range of physics topics, including precision measurements of the W± and Z bosons, evidence of the Higgs-boson decay into a Z boson and a photon, and searches for a new scalar particle.

Not a jet all the way: is dark matter hiding in plain sight?

What happens if dark-matter particles are produced inside a jet of Standard-Model particles? This leads to a novel detector signature known as semi-visible jets! The ATLAS Collaboration has come up with a new search for semi-visible jets, looking for them in a general production mode where two protons interact by exchanging an intermediate particle, which is then converted into two jets.

LHC experiments see first evidence for rare Higgs boson decay into two different bosons

The ATLAS and CMS Collaborations have joined forces to report first evidence of the Higgs boson decaying into a Z boson and a photon.

New high-precision measurements of W and Z boson properties

At the 2023 LHCP conference, ATLAS physicists presented precise new measurements of the W± and Z boson transverse momentum distributions at two centre-of-mass energies: 13 TeV and, for the first time, 5.02 TeV. These results give unprecedented information on these transverse-momentum shape spectra, providing crucial input for other studies of these bosons.

ATLAS measures the Higgs boson at 13.6 TeV

The ATLAS Collaboration just released new measurements of the production rate (or cross-section) of Higgs bosons at 13.6 TeV using data collected in the second half of 2022.

Summary of new ATLAS results from LHCP 2023

The eleventh annual conference on Large Hadron Collider physics (LHCP 2023) kicks off today in Belgrade (Serbia) signaling the return of this week-long event to its face-to-face format. The programme of this edition covers the wide spectrum of Large Hadron Collider physics and technology, from several final studies of the LHC Run-2 dataset (2015-2018) to detailed assessments of the upgraded accelerators and detectors for Run 3.
