Considering the supersymmetric model with the long-lived charged Higgsino, we discuss how Higgsino kink signals can show up in the latest LHC Disappearing Track (DT) and stable chargino searches. We derive constraints on the Higgsino kink signal, and characterize it in comparison to the Wino DT and the slepton kink track. We also discuss how to infer Higgsino model kinematics.

Constraining the R -symmetric chargino NLSP at the LHC

We present a phenomenological study of Dirac electroweakinos in a $U(1)_R$ extension of the MSSM with a strictly $R$-symmetric Higgs sector (MRSSM) and gauge-mediated supersymmetry breaking. One of

Closing the window for compressed dark sectors with disappearing charged tracks

A bstractWe investigate the sensitivity at current and future hadron colliders to a heavy electrically-charged particle with a proper decay length below a centimetre, whose decay products are

We study the capabilities of a muon collider experiment to detect disappearing tracks originating when a heavy and electrically charged long-lived particle decays viaX+ → Y +Z0, where X+ and Z0 are

Reinterpreting pp→W+W− searches for charginos

The hallmark way to search for electroweakinos in natural supersymmetry at the LHC involves the trilepton plus missing energy final state. This approach assumes an electroweakino mass hierarchy that

A global fit of the MSSM with GAMBIT

We study the seven-dimensional Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM7) with the new GAMBIT software framework, with all parameters defined at the weak scale. Our analysis significantly extends

Searching for long-lived particles beyond the Standard Model at the Large Hadron Collider

Particles beyond the Standard Model (SM) can generically have lifetimes that are long compared to SM particles at the weak scale. When produced at experiments such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)

Displaced new physics at colliders and the early universe before its first second

Displaced vertices at colliders, arising from the production and decay of longlived particles, probe dark matter candidates produced via freeze-in. If one assumes a standard cosmological history,

Multilepton signatures for scalar dark matter searches in coannihilation scenario

We revisit the scalar singlet dark matter (DM) scenario with a pair of dark lepton partners which form a vectorlike Dirac fermionic doublet. The extra doublet couples with the Standard Model (SM)

Novel signature for long-lived particles at the LHC

In contrast to the decay products ensuing from a fast moving particle which are collimated along the original direction of the parent, those from a slow moving particle are distributed over a wide



Search for charginos nearly mass degenerate with the lightest neutralino based on a disappearing-track signature in pp collisions at √(s) = 8 TeV with the ATLAS detector

A search is presented for direct chargino production based on a disappearing-track signature using 20.3 fb(-1) of proton-proton collisions at root s = 8 TeV collected with the ATLAS experiment at t

Supersymmetry with a chargino NLSP and gravitino LSP

We demonstrate that the lightest chargino can be lighter than the lightest neutralino in supersymmetric models with Dirac gaugino masses as well as within a curious parameter region of the MSSM.

Implications of an axino LSP for naturalness

Both the naturalness of the electroweak symmetry breaking and the resolution of the strong CP problem may require a small Higgsino mass $\mu$ generated by a realization of the DFSZ axion model.

Searches for topologies characteristic of Gauge Mediated SUSY Breaking models (GMSB) are performed by analysing 173.6 pb−1 of data collected at s√ = 188.6 GeV with the ALEPH detector. These

Discovering Supersymmetry at the Tevatron in W -ino Lightest Supersymmetric Particle Scenarios

In supersymmetric models, W -inos, partners of the SU(2) gauge bosons, may be the lightest supersymmetric particles. For generic parameters, charged and neutral W -inos are highly degenerate. Charged

Pure Gravity Mediation with m_{3/2} = 10-100TeV

Recently, the ATLAS and CMS collaborations reported exciting hints of a Standard Model-like Higgs boson with a mass around 125 GeV. Such a Higgs boson mass can be easily obtained in the minimal

Axinos in cosmology and at colliders

The axino, the fermionic superpartner of the axion, is a well-motivated candidate for cold dark matter if it is the lightest supersymmetric particle. Since the axino couples very weakly to the matter

Stau kinks at the LHC

A bstractThe kink signature of charged tracks is predicted in some SUSY models, and it is very characteristic signal at collider experiments. We study the kink signature at LHC using two models, SUSY

Long-lived staus and displaced leptons at the LHC

A bstractAs the majority of LHC searches are focused on prompt signatures, specific long-lived particles have the potential to be overlooked by the otherwise systematic new physics programs at ATLAS
