Searches for electroweak supersymmetry: highlights, coverage and limitations — •Jeanette Lorenz — LMU Munich, Germany
Supersymmetry is an appealing extension beyond the Standard Model, which could provide e.g. a particle candidate for Dark Matter. Both the ATLAS and the CMS experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), CERN, carry out a comprehensive search program, addressing several complementary signatures of supersymmetric particles. Searches for the supersymmetric partners of the electroweak gauge bosons (charginos and neutralinos) and leptons (sleptons) are particularly challenging due to low cross sections and possibly low-energetic decay products. The increasing data statistics as well as improvements in the technical methods allow some of these searches to be done for the first time at the LHC. Recent highlights of these searches will be presented along with the assumptions made in the interpretation of the results. Although these searches have not resulted in a discovery yet, there are several ways how supersymmetry could hide, which guide us to new directions in future searches.
