ATLAS highlights from the EPS-HEP 2021 conference

ATLAS’ vibrant physics programme was on full display at EPS-HEP 2021, with members presenting 26 new physics analyses among other key recent results. These were shown in 63 presentations and 45 posters over the five days.

Hunting for forbidden decays of the Z boson

In a new study, the ATLAS Collaboration looked for Z bosons decaying into an electron and an anti-muon, or into a muon and a positron.

ATLAS measures key Higgs boson interaction with high precision

The ATLAS Collaboration releases new measurements of the Higgs-boson decay to tau leptons. The result provides new insight into the “Yukawa coupling”, a key interaction of the Higgs boson.

Two Higgs bosons are better than one

One of the long-term goals of the LHC is to measure the Higgs-boson self-coupling, which in turn can give us clues about the formation of the early Universe. This self-coupling can only be measured directly by studying the production of pairs of Higgs bosons (HH).

Probing new physics with pairs of Higgs bosons

The ATLAS Collaboration has released a new result searching for pairs of Higgs bosons (HH) produced by new particles. The Higgs bosons would then each decay into pairs of bottom (b) quarks – known as the '4b decay channel'.

ATLAS reports first observation of WWW production

The ATLAS Collaboration announces the first observation of “WWW production”: the simultaneous creation of three massive W bosons in high-energy LHC collisions.
