Searching for leptoquarks at the LHC

by Panos Charitos

A recent “Cross Collider” meeting at CERN showed that the physics of leptoquarks remains a rapidly evolving field on both experimental and theoretical fronts.

The ATLAS collaboration has presented evidence of Higgs boson produced in association with top quarks, a rare process that provide new insight into the Higgs mechanism. 

Although the energy scale of New Physics might lie beyond current experiments' reach, the study of W and Z bosons and photons, through their self-interactions, can reveal hints of new physics at LHC energies and offer useful lessons for future high-energy colliders.

Colliding photons at the LHC!

by Panos Charitos

Image result for Colliding photons at the LHCLHC is the world’s most powerful collider not only for protons and lead ions but also for photon–photon allowing physicists to study this topic. 

New LHC results presented at EPS-HEP 2017

by Panos Charitos

In July, more than 700 physicists gathered in Venice to discuss the latest developments in the field of particle physics at EPS 2017, one of the most important international conferences of the field.

The RD53 collaboration submitted a vital milestone to make viable pixel detectors for the ATLAS and CMS phase 2 upgrades.

Wealth of new results in Quark Matter 2017

by Panos Charitos

Last month, the LHC experiment collaborations presented their latest results at the Quark Matter 2017 conference on how matter behaved in the very early moments of the universe.
