ATLAS casts wide net in search for new high-mass particles
The ATLAS Collaboration has performed an extensive search for new, high-mass particles that can decay to a pair of W bosons. As many theoretical models predict the existence of such high-mass particles, physicists were able to investigate the validity of several models at once across a large energy range.

ATLAS measures Higgs width
In a highlight result presented at the Higgs 2022 conference, the ATLAS Collaboration studied the production of off-shell Higgs bosons with a high invariant mass decaying into two on-shell Z bosons using the data collected during LHC Run 2 (2015-2018). For their new search, ATLAS physicists focused on events where the two Z bosons decay into four charged leptons (ZZ→4l channel) or two charged leptons plus two neutrinos (ZZ→ 2l2v channel), as they offered the highest signal sensitivity.
