The ATLAS detector at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the biggest detector in high energy physics. The goal of ATLAS is to search for Higgs particle as well as beyond standard model (BSM) new physics. IHEP ATLAS team plays an important role in the Higgs study and BSM searches such as di-Higgs, SUSY as well as SM physics. IHEP also participates in the ATLAS Phase-II Inner Tracker Upgrade project.
IHEP ATLAS team
IHEP ATLAS team plays an important role in the study of Higgs and searches for the BSM physics and participates in the ATLAS Phase-II Inner Tracker Upgrade project. Currently, members of our group are working on the following activities:
· Leading ATLAS physics analyses, including Searches for New Physics beyond the SM, understanding the properties of the Higgs boson.
· On-site at CERN operating the pixel detector for the 13 TeV run.
· Performing in-house R&D towards a replacement tracking detector, designed to operate at ten times the current rate of collisions for the High-Luminosity upgrade of the LHC in next decade (HL-LHC).
IHEP ATLAS team has around 20 faculties, 10 postdocs and 20 Ph.D. students. We have wide collaborations with international labs/institutes on physics analysis, ITK project as well as training students. The students or postdocs are expected to spend some time working at CERN, located at the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, on the detector operations, shifts and physics analyses working closely with international colleagues in ATLAS collaborations.
