Particle experiment: Searching for Dark Matter with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC

Supervisor: Dr. Andreas Korn

With an order of magnitude more luminosity expected, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) operating at the energy frontier has the potential to answer important questions in particle physics. One of the most paramount open questions is the nature of dark matter (DM). Searching for DM and other new physics with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC requires a reconstructible signature. One of the most challenging and promising signatures relies on displaced decay vertices. The PhD project will search for such signatures and contribute to the identification of b-jets and possibly longer lived particles.
