There is growing interest in the far forward region at the LHC. Detectors placed hundreds of meters downstream from existing interaction points along the beam collision axis may search for LLPs, detect thousands of TeV neutrinos, and make measurements of relevance for a broad range of topics, from hadronic physics to cosmic ray experiments. These efforts are currently limited to fit within...
Droplets of quark-gluon plasma (QGP), a state of strongly interacting quantum chromodynamics matter, are produced in high-energy collisions between heavy nuclei. Recent theoretical studies suggest using the top quark, the heaviest elementary particle known to date, as a novel time-delayed probe of the QGP. The top quark is a colored particle that decays almost always into a W boson plus a...
Electromagnetic fields surrounding LHC beams source high energy photons that can collide to produce new particles. We highlight important and interesting BSM physics targets for QED production from two recent proposals: 1) slepton and dark matter production with proton-tagging using pp beams, 2) new physics modifications to tau g-2 using PbPb beams. These open new cross-cutting opportunities...
