Bragg Selection Rules for a Nanoparticle Diffraction Experiment

I. Cevdet Noyan presents "Bragg Selection Rules for a Nanoparticle Diffraction Experiment" at the next APS Colloquium.


100-plus years of theoretical and experimental advances have reduced kinematical scattering formalisms for powder diffraction to routine, vendor-supplied, black-box analysis programs accessible to users at all training levels. Understanding what really goes on in the analysis, however, is a non-trivial task. We used computer modeling to analyze the powder diffraction process from nanoparticle ensembles.

Composite Spin-1 Resonances at the LHC

Composite spin-1 resonances are a universal feature of composite Higgs models. In this talk, I will discuss the phenomenology of such resonances at the LHC, motivated by the possible observation of a diboson resonance in the 8 TeV LHC data. Particular attention is paid to the role played by fermion partial compositeness which is an important component in composite Higgs models. I will address the viability of such resonances to account for the LHC excess and make projections for the discovery potential at the 13 TeV LHC.
