Opportunities for Light Particles at the Large Hadron Collider

HEP Theory Seminar

Abstract: The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is consistently extending its reach to higher and higher masses. While the LHC coverage for a wide range of final states is excellent at a few hundreds of GeV and above, the coverage is less thorough at masses just below 100 GeV.

In this talk, I will motivate new physics that could appear at relatively low masses and will discuss search strategies that may allow the LHC to substantially improve its reach for particles below 100 GeV. In particular, I will suggest a search for diphoton resonances and mention physics opportunities for upgraded trigger of CMS.
