R-hadrons are predicted in a range of supersymmetric scenarios including splitsupersymmetry and gauge-mediated supersymmetry breaking. In this paper, the discovery potential of the ATLAS experiment for gluino and stop-based R-hadrons is outlined. A range of final state observables such as high transverse momentum muon-like objects and information on ionization energy loss is used. It is shown that ATLAS would be able to discover such particles at comparatively modest amounts of luminosity (1fb… CONTINUE READING
