A bstractIn new-physics processes that produce b or c jets, a measurement of the initial b or c-quark polarization could provide crucial information about the structure of the new physics. In the heavy-quark limit, the b and c-quark polarizations are preserved in the lightest baryons they hadronize into, Λb and Λc, respectively. We revisit the prediction for the polarization retention after the hadronization process and extend it to the case of transverse polarization. We show how ATLAS and CMS… 

Measuring quark polarizations at ATLAS and CMS

Being able to measure the polarization of quarks produced in various processes at the LHC would be of fundamental significance. Measuring the polarizations of quarks produced in new physics

Measuring c-quark polarization in W +c samples at ATLAS and CMS

A bstractThe process pp → W−c produces polarized charm quarks. The polarization is expected to be partly retained in Λc baryons when those form in the c-quark hadronization. We argue that it will

Angular distribution of polarised Λb baryons decaying to Λℓ+ℓ−

A bstractRare b → sℓ+ℓ− flavour-changing-neutral-current processes provide important tests of the Standard Model of particle physics. Angular observables in exclusive b → sℓ+ℓ− processes can be

Measuring polarization of light quarks at ATLAS and CMS

Polarization of strange quarks is preserved to a high degree when they hadronize into Lambda baryons, as observed in Z decays at LEP. This opens up the possibility for ATLAS and CMS to use

Measuring polarizations of bottom, charm, strange, up and down quarks in top decays

Standard Model $t\bar t$ samples in ATLAS and CMS provide an opportunity to conduct measurements of the polarization of quarks produced in top-quark decays. The bottom quarks from the $t \to W^+ b$

Search for New Physics via Baryon EDM at LHC

Permanent electric dipole moments (EDMs) of fundamental particles provide powerful probes for physics beyond the Standard Model. We propose to search for the EDM of strange and charm baryons at LHC,

Radiative b-baryon decays to measure the photon and b-baryon polarization

The radiative decays of $b$-baryons facilitate the direct measurement of photon helicity in $b\to s\gamma$ transitions thus serving as an important test of physics beyond the Standard Model. In this

Measuring the CP property of Higgs coupling to tau leptons in the VBF channel at the LHC

A bstractWe study the prospects of measuring the CP property of the Higgs (h) coupling to tau leptons using the vector boson fusion (VBF) production mode at the high-luminosity LHC. Utilizing the

Investigating the color-suppressed decays $\Lambda_b\rightarrow \Lambda \psi$ in the perturbative QCD approach

The nonleptonic two-body Λb → Λψ decays with ψ = J/ψ or ψ(2S) are investigated based on the perturbative QCD approach. These are color-suppressed processes in which the nonfactorizable contributions

Top B physics at the LHC.

The proposed strategy to measure CP violation is independent of those adopted so far in experiments, and can already constrain non standard model sources of CP violation with current and near future LHC data.
