The LHC searches for light compressed stop squarks have resulted in considerable bounds in the case where the stop decays to a neutralino and a charm quark. However, in the case where the stop decays to a neutralino, a bottom quark and two fermions via an off-shell W -boson, there is currently a significant unconstrained region in the stop-neutralino mass plane, still allowing for stop masses in the range 90–140 GeV. In this paper we propose a new monojet-like search for light stops, optimized…

Proposing a new LHC search for light compressed stop squarks
The LHC searches for light compressed stop squarks have resulted in considerable bounds in the case where the stop decays to a neutralino and a charm quark. However, in the case where the stop decays
Search for Heavy Stops with Merged Top Jets

We study an interesting region of phase space at the LHC for pair-produced stops decaying into hadronic top quarks and light neutralinos. After imposing a sizeable cut on the missing transverse

A bstractWe derive new limits on light stops from diboson resonance searches in the γγ, Zγ, ZZ, WW and hh channels from the first run of the LHC. If the two-body decays of the light stop are mildly
Two light stops in the NMSSM and the LHC
• Physics
• 2015
A bstractWe study the viability of having two relatively light top squarks (‘stops’) in the framework of the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM). Such light stops render the NMSSM
Light stop mass limits from Higgs rate measurements in the MSSM: is MSSM electroweak baryogenesis still alive after all?
• Physics
• 2015
A bstractWe investigate the implications of the Higgs rate measurements from Run 1 of the LHC for the mass of the light scalar top partner (stop) in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM).
Uncover compressed supersymmetry via boosted bosons from the heavier stop/sbottom
• Physics
• 2017
A light stop around the weak scale is a hopeful messenger of natural supersymmetry (SUSY), but it has not shown up at the current stage of LHC. Such a situation raises the question of the fate of
Natural Supersymmetry, Muon $g-2$, and the Last Crevices for the Top Squark
• Physics
• 2015
We study the interplay of natural supersymmetry and a supersymmetric solution to the discrepancy observed in measurements of the muon magnetic moment. The strongest constraints on the parameter space
Light stop squarks and b-tagging
• Physics
• 2014
The status of light stop searches is reviewed, both in RPC and RPV scenarios and strategies are proposed, generally based on exploiting b-tagging, to cover the unconstrained regions.
Constraining slepton and chargino through compressed top squark search

A bstractWe examine the compressed mass spectrum with sub-TeV top squark t˜$$\left(\tilde{t}\right)$$ as lightest colored (s)particle in natural supersymmetry (SUSY). Such spectra are searched
