Searching for exotic long lived particles with dedicated experiments at the LHC

Abstract: The Large Hadron Collider has opened a new energy frontier for searches for new physics. Initial results of the 13 TeV run have not yet revealed signals for new physics in ATLAS or CMS. Do these detectors allow us to search at all places where new physics could show up? In this presentation we look at some scenarios where small dedicated experiments will allow to considerably extend our search horizon. The explicate examples of the proposed MilliQan experiment – a search for millicharge particles- and the already approved and running MoEDAL experiment – a search for monopoles – will be presented. In addition there are even more recent ideas for new detection techniques at the LHC for new physics.

Topological matter for pedestrians

Abstract: The last decade has witnessed a tremendous success in identifying novel phases of matter classified by the topological properties of their spectrum. Topological quantum matter comes in three incarnations, consisting of topological insulators, metals and superconductors. I will give (mostly) a non-technical introduction to this enormous research field which combines ideas from condensed-matter physics, high-energy physics and mathematics. Topological materials exhibit quantized responses, exotic emergent quantum particles and offer new platforms for future technology.

Annual reporting on research
Remember to update your research activities on TUHAT database. Pay attention to information which is not centrally collected, especially international mobility and other publications than refereed journal articles. The library collects information on refereed journal articles and it will be checked in preparing the HIP Annual Report.

Reporting is requested by January 31, 2017.
