The ATLAS SemiConductor Tracker (SCT) is a silicon-strip tracking detector which forms part of the ATLAS inner detector. The SCT is designed to track charged particles produced in proton-proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN at an energy of 14 TeV. The tracker is made up of a central barrel and two identical end-caps. The barrel(More)
QCD coherence effects are studied based on measurements of correlations of particles with either restricted transverse momenta, p T < p cut T , where p T is defined with respect to the thrust axis, or restricted absolute momenta, p ≡ |p| < p cut , using about four million hadronic Z decays recorded at LEP with the OPAL detector. The correlations are(More)
Searches for a scalar top quark and a scalar bottom quark have been performed using a data sample of 438 pb at centre-of-mass energies of √ s =192 – 209 GeV collected with the OPAL detector at LEP. No evidence for a signal was found. The 95% confidence level lower limit on the scalar top quark mass is 97.6 GeV if the mixing angle between the supersymmetric(More)
A search for pair-produced doubly charged Higgs bosons has been performed using data samples corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 614 pb −1 collected with the OPAL detector at LEP at centre-of-mass energies between 189 GeV and 209 GeV. No evidence for a signal has been observed. A mass limit of 98.5 GeV/c 2 at the 95% confidence level has been(More)
The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is an option for a future [Formula: see text] collider operating at centre-of-mass energies up to [Formula: see text], providing sensitivity to a wide range of new physics phenomena and precision physics measurements at the energy frontier. This paper is the first comprehensive presentation of the Higgs physics reach of(More)

A search is made for charged Higgs bosons predicted by Two-Higgs-Doublet extensions of the Standard Model (2HDM) using electron-positron collision data collected by the OPAL experiment at [Formula: see text], corresponding to an integrated luminosity of approximately 600 pb-1. Charged Higgs bosons are assumed to be pair-produced and to decay into [Formula:(More)
Exploiting the advantages of reading out segmented silicon from the n-side, we have produced test detectors with LHC pitch but 1-cm-long strips which even after proton irradiation at the CERN PS (24 GeV protons) to 7.5/spl times/10/sup 15/ cm/sup -2/ show signal to noise greater than 8:1 using LHC speed electronics. This dose exceeds by a factor of 2 that(More)
