Revisiting compressed SUSY at LHC

Abstract: Recently a compressed mass spectrum has been thought as an explanation for the elusiveness of low-energy supersymmetry (SUSY). Some characteristic signals at the Large Hadron Collider, such as mono-jet + missing transverse energy (MET), had been propounded as its trademark signals. However, later investigations suggested that lower limits on the supersym- metric particle masses would be quite stringent in spite of compression. Also, most compressed SUSY scenarios studied so far are only partially compressed. By keeping the level of compression in the entire spectrum as high as possible we study a broad class of benchmark spectra, ensuring consistency with the observed Higgs mass as well as the dark matter constraints. We show that of both the multi-jet +MET and mono-jet + MET final states, the former is still more efficient to reveal a compressed SUSY spectrum first, while the latter can serve as a useful confirmatory channel.

My Experiences in Large Experiments

Abstract: I have worked in two large high energy physics experiments, UA1 and CMS. I will talk about some personal experiences, indicating also important milestones of particle physics achieved in these experiments.

Upcoming Events: Nuclear Science and Technology Symposium – NST2016
The Finnish Nuclear Society (FNS) organizes the Nuclear Science and
Technology Symposium – NST2016 on November 2-3, 2016 in Helsinki. The
symposium gathers together research, industry and authority
representatives from Finland and abroad for scientific talks and
industry presentations. The FNS 50-year anniversary dinner and lectures
for the general public are held in connection with the symposium. For
details see the webpage http://www.ats-fns.fi/en/nst2016.
