„Searches for long-lived particles at CMS”

Referuje: dr Małgorzata Kazana  (NCBJ)

Models beyond the SM predict new particles with a wide range of lifetimes. The weak-scale particles can get a long lifetime which lead to unconventional signatures in the detector with respect to these from prompt decays, often requiring customized techniques to trigger and identify them.

The CMS experiment at the LHC collider puts a growing effort to expand the reach for long-lived signals. During the seminar, recent studies on long-lived particles will be shown.

Krzysztof Mękała: „Heavy Neutrinos at Future Linear e+e- Colliders”

With the Standard Model being unable to describe the observed baryon asymmetry or dark matter density in the universe, many models of the New Physics introduce heavy neutrino species as a possible explanation for these effects. Dirac or Majorana neutrinos with masses above the EW scale could be produced at future linear e+e- colliders, like the Compact LInear Collider (CLIC) or the International Linear Collider (ILC).

We studied the possibility of observing production and decays of heavy neutrinos in qql final state at the ILC running at 500 GeV and 1 TeV, and the CLIC running at 3 TeV. The analysis is based on the WHIZARD event generation and fast simulation of the detector response with DELPHES. Dirac and Majorana neutrinos with masses from 200 GeV to 3.2 TeV are considered. Estimated limits on the production cross sections and on the neutrino-lepton coupling are compared with the current limits coming from the LHC running at 13 TeV, as well as the expected future limits from hadron colliders.

 

Jan Klamka: „Search for the pair-production of charged IDM scalars at high energy CLIC”

Compact Linear Collider is the next energy frontier e+e- collider proposed at CERN. Its goal is to precisely test Standard Model (SM) predictions, as well as directly search for the „new physics”. One of the models predicting such phenomena is the Inert Doublet Model (IDM), a very simple extension of the SM scalar sector. It brings in four new particles, including one good dark matter candidate. CLIC sensitivity for discovery of the IDM scalars has been tested, considering 23 benchmark points in the model parameter space. Both fast and full detector simulation techniques were used, where Delphes model of the CLIC detector was extended to include background from gamma-gamma interactions, essential in this analysis. Study shows that IDM particles can be discovered at CLIC for most of considered benchmark points, with high statistical significance.

„Test of Lepton Flavour Universality at LHCb”

Referuje: dr. Wojciech Krzemień  (NCBJ)

The Standard Model of particle physics assumes that the interactions of the three charged leptons differ only because of their mass differences. Any deviation from this Lepton Universality Principle would suggest new kind of interactions or particles beyond the Standard Model.

Precision tests of lepton universality have been performed over the years by many experiments.

The recent studies of the LHCb experiment indicate evidence for the breaking of lepton universality in beauty-quark decays, with a statistical significance of 3.1 standard deviations.

In the talk the last results from the LHCb will be discussed in the context of previous and future measurements.

Krzysztof Mękała:  “CLIC sensitivity to invisible scalar decays”

The Compact LInear Collider (CLIC) is a proposed TeV-scale high-luminosity electron-positron collider at CERN. CLIC will allow us to study the Higgs boson properties with very high precision. These measurements can also result in direct or indirect discovery of „new physics”, Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) phenomena, which could help us to understand the nature of dark matter (DM). SM-like Higgs boson or new heavy scalar decays with emission of invisible DM particles can be the only way to observe „new physics” effects at achievable energy scales and establish connection between Standard Model and BSM sectors.

We studied the possibility of measuring invisible Higgs boson and additional heavy scalars decays with experiment at CLIC running at 380 GeV and 1.5 TeV. We estimated the expected limits on the invisible decays of the

125 GeV Higgs boson, as well as the cross section limits for production of an additional neutral Higgs scalar, assuming its invisible decays, as a function of its mass.

 

Kacper Nowak: ”Optimising top-quark threshold scan at e+e- colliders using genetic algorithm”

One of the important goals at the future e+e- colliders is to measure the top-quark mass and width in a scan of the pair production threshold.

However, the shape of the pair-production cross section at the threshold depends also on other model parameters, as the top Yukawa coupling, and the measurement is a subject to many systematic uncertainties.

Presented is the most general approach to the top-quark mass determination from the threshold scan at CLIC, with all relevant model parameters and selected systematic uncertainties and constraints from other measurements included in the fit procedure. The top-quark mass can be extracted with precision of the order of 30 to 40 MeV already for 100 fb-1 of data collected at the threshold. Additional improvement is possible if the running scenario is optimized: with the optimisation procedure based on the genetic algorithm the uncertainty can be reduced by about 25%.

„The NICA Complex and the MPD Detector at JINR: status and physics potential”

Referuje: prof. Adam Kisiel (PW)

The Multi-Purpose Detector is under construction at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, as part of the NICA Accelerator Complex. The MPD Collaboration aims to study the phase diagram of QCD matter at maximum baryonic density, determine the nature of the phase transition between the deconfined and hadronic matter and search for the critical point. The combination of significant luminosity at NICA, collider geometry of the experiment and collision energies for multiple beam species spanning the range of

4 to 11 AGeV, where the transition from baryon to meson dominated matter is expected will allow MPD to provide unique insight into these questions. Progress in the construction on the NICA Complex components will be shown. The status of the assembly of the detector in MPD Hall, as well as the progress in the production of MPD subdetectors will be reported on as well. The initial running plan for NICA will be given.

The design physics performance of the detector will be discussed, with emphasis on main observables relevant for phase diagram study. Tracking and particle identification procedures will enable precise determination of spectra of identified hadrons, including hyperons and hypernuclei, with the aim of multi-differential measurements and total yield extraction. Selected methods of centrality and reaction plane orientation extraction will be compared. The quality of directed and elliptic flow determination will be discussed, with comparison to model expectations. The sensitivity of event-by-event fluctuations to the nature of the phase transition and the presence of a critical point will be given. The femtoscopic analysis for charged pions and kaons has shown sensitivity to first order and cross-over phase transitions in EoS seen for the vHLLE model. All those studies will be put in context of addressing outstanding questions on the properties of the region of the QCD phase diagram probed by heavy-ion collisions in the NICA energy range.

„The KATRIN experiment: neutrino mass measurements with sub-eV sensitivity and future prospects”

Referuje: Dr. Alexey Lokhov (University of Muenster)

Arlsruhe TRItium Neutrino experiment (KATRIN) is searching for the signature of the neutrino mass in the endpoint region of the tritium beta-decay spectrum. KATRIN combines a high-intensity gaseous molecular tritium source with a high-resolution spectroscopy using electrostatic filter with magnetic adiabatic collimation to reach the target neutrino-mass sensitivity of 0.2 eV/c2, improving on the previous measurements by an order of magnitude. With the first science run of KATRIN the previous neutrino mass bounds were improved by a factor of two, with the first upper limit of 1.1 eV/c2 (90% CL).

In this talk an overview of the KATRIN experiment and its very recent results are presented. Our preliminary new results reaching a sub-eV neutrino-mass sensitivity based on the whole 2019 data-set will be discussed. In addition, the talk reports on the KATRIN exploration of interesting BSM physics cases and closes with an outlook on the future prospects of KATRIN.

„Status of the ILC project and news from LCWS’2021”

Referuje: prof. dr hab. Aleksander Filip Żarnecki (WF UW)

In recent years, momentum has been building for Japan to host the International Linear Collider (ILC). High-level discussions have taken place between the US and Japan, and also between European countries and Japan. 2020 Update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics confirmed the need for a Higgs factory as the essential next step for particle physics and also expressed willingness of the European community to collaborate in the ILC. ICFA has taken a major step to focus on requirements to establish an ILC „Pre-Lab” in Japan by setting up the International Development Team (IDT). This team has the mandate to pave the way for an organisation that would be the precursor to an official ILC laboratory. News on the ILC project development and IDT activities have been just presented at the 2021 International Workshop on Future Linear Colliders (LCWS2021). The workshop covers physics, detectors, and accelerator issues related to the high-energy linear electron-positron colliders CLIC and ILC. Many activities of the Warsaw LC group have also been presented.

„Ultra-peripheral vector meson photoproduction in heavy-ion collisions in CMS”

Referuje: Marek Walczak (IFD)

In this seminar I will present the first measurement of the total cross-section of the coherent ultra-peripheral photoproduction of the Υ meson in lead-lead collisions at 5.02 TeV. The data used in the analysis has been collected in 2018 by the CMS experiment at the CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. The considered channel is the muon decay of the Υ meson, Υ → μ+μ−. This process is sensitive to the nuclear Parton Distribution Functions for gluons.

„Future Circular Collider – The future of opportunities”

Referuje: dr hab. Marcin Chrząszcz (IFJ PAN)

The FCC-ee is a high-luminosity, high-precision e+e- circular collider. Two separate e+ and e- storage rings with very strong focusing, fed by a full size continuous injector, provide e+e- collision luminosities ranging from (per interaction point) 230 1034 /cm2 /s at the Z pole, 8 1034 /cm2 /s at the ZH production maximum (240 GeV) and 1.7 1034 /cm2 /s at the tt threshold and up to 365 GeV. Two to four interaction points are considered.

The run plan of 15-20 years yields 5 10^12 Z bosons, 10^8 W pairs, 1.3 10^6 Higgs bosons and 10^6 top quark pairs. Thanks to the availability of transverse polarization, the energy calibration at 100 keV precision offers unprecedented precision for measurements of Z and W properties. The possibility of s-channel Higgs production at ECM=125 GeV is under study, giving unique access to the electron Yukawa coupling. These opportunities make the FCC-ee stand out among the other Higgs factory proposals.

Especially at the Z run, considerable challenges await experimenters and theorists, for systematic uncertainties to match the extraordinary available statistical precision.

„Towards spin physics from Lattice QCD”

Referuje: Prof. UAM dr hab. Krzysztof Cichy (UAM)

In this talk, we will present recent directions in lattice QCD computations of nucleon structure, in particular for spin-dependent observables. We will provide a brief non-technical introduction to lattice QCD in general and to lattice methods that give access to the relevant physical quantities. Then, we will review selected results for spin-dependent parton distribution functions (PDFs) and generalized parton distributions (GPDs), including both their moments and their x-dependence. Finally, we will show the nucleon spin decomposition from the lattice in terms of contributions from valence/sea quarks and gluons.
