Uncovering New Signals of Long-Lived Particles

Brian Shuve, physics professor, Harvey Mudd College

When Harvey Mudd College physics professor Brian Shuve began studying long-lived particles (LLPs) five or six years ago, the concept was somewhat of a fringe idea. Was it possible that particle collisions within the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) were throwing off new particles that slipped unnoticed past LHC detectors and that those particles could hold […]
