Oleg Brandt: AN Underground Belayed In-Shaft (ANUBIS) experiment to search for long-lived particles using LHC service shafts at CERN

Friday, 13 March 2020 from to (Europe/London)
at Schuster ( 54-6-6.40 - Niels Bohr Common Room )
Long-lived particles are predicted by many extensions of the Standard Model and have been gaining interest in recent years. The presentation will discuss a competitive proposal that substantially extends the sensitivity in lifetime by instrumenting the existing service shafts above the ATLAS or CMS experiments with tracking stations. For scenarios with electrically neutral long-lived particles with m > 1 GeV, the lifetime reach is increased by 2-3 orders of magnitude compared to currently operating and approved future experiments at the LHC. A detector design proposal is outlined along with projected costs.
