The quest for super-particles continues

new ATLAS results with contributions from our group


Yesterday the ATLAS collaboration presented new results on the search for the "stop" quark, a hypothetical supersymmetric partner of the top quark. Physicists from our group contributed to the analysis and put their strongest efforts on eagerly searching the tremendous amount of collected data.
No compelling sign of the "stop" particle was found, but the data can be used to constrain supersymmetric models. While these constraints are stringent there is still room for "stops" and the quest will be continued.
