Jetting into a new era of Higgs studies

The ATLAS Collaboration has made a significant advancement in the understanding of the Higgs boson by investigating its production in association with W or Z bosons (known as “VH production”), where the Higgs boson decays to bottom quarks. For the first time, LHC researchers have studied VH production in a fully hadronic final state.

ATLAS searches for the building blocks of dark matter

Researchers at the ATLAS Experiment release the first-ever direct search for new composite dark particles called dark mesons, presented this week at the Large Hadron Collider Physics (LHCP) Conference in Boston.

ATLAS dives deeper into di-Higgs: a combined search

In a new analysis from the ATLAS Collaboration, physicists merged five di-Higgs studies of LHC Run 2 data. By combining the power of all these decay channels, researchers achieved the most sensitive probe of di-Higgs production and the Higgs self-coupling.

ATLAS chases long-lived particles with the Higgs boson

In a new study submitted to Physical Review Letters, ATLAS scientists used a new algorithm to search for long-lived particles (LLP) produced in the decay of Higgs bosons. These LLPs may leave a distinct signature of one or more hadronic “jets” of particles originating at a significantly displaced position from the proton–proton collision point.

Summary of new ATLAS results from LHCP 2024

The twelfth annual conference on Large Hadron Collider physics (LHCP 2024) kicks off today in Boston, USA. This week-long event will feature a detailed review of the latest experimental and theoretical results in collider physics, including several final studies of the LHC Run-2 dataset (collected in 2015-2018) and discussions on future research directions for the high-energy particle-physics community.
