  1. 1. Derivation of Improved K^0_L Response Uncertainty for use in the Jet Energy Scale Calibration at ATLAS

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik

    Author : Alexander Ekman; [2019]
    Keywords : kaon; neutral kaon; K^0_L; K_Long; klong; single-particle response; response; detector response; calorimeter; ATLAS; CERN; jets; trigger level analysis; TLA; physics list; Monte Carlo; MC; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The Standard Model of particle physics (SM) attempts to describe the fundamental particles and how they interact with each other. This model is however incomplete, as shown by various experimental observations. ATLAS is one of the experiments currently in operation at the Large Hadron Collider, which aims to search for new physics beyond the SM. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development of a DC Beam Model for the First Prototype of the ESS Virtual Machine

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kärnfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Benjamin Bolling; [2019]
    Keywords : Particle; Accelerator; Beam; Physics; Science; Virtual Machine; Virtual; Machine; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The European Spallation Source is currently under construction in Lund, Sweden. Consisting of a linear accelerator delivering an unprecedented 5 MW proton beam to the spallation source, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies of Possible QGP Estimators in proton-proton Collisions

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Anna Önnerstad; [2019]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : This thesis presents studies of three different Quark-Gluon Plasma estimators in proton-proton collisions using what is currently believed to be quark-gluon plasma observables; radial flow, elliptic flow and strangeness enhancement. The three tested estimators were Transverse Spherocity, an altered version of Transverse Spherocity where all p_T was put to one, and a newly developed estimator called Mid-Forward. READ MORE

  4. 4. Frequency Map Analysis of the MAX IV Storage Rings

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Synkrotronljusfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Johan Lundquist; [2019]
    Keywords : Accelerator; MAX IV; Tune; Diagnostics; Turn by turn; Frequency map; Chromaticity; Beta function; BPM; Synchrotron; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : As a beam of particles moves through a storage ring each particle will perform transverse oscillations as a result of the focusing magnetic fields it encounters. The amount of transverse oscillations performed in a single revolution of the ring is known as the particle's betatron tune. READ MORE

  5. 5. Study of Dark Matter Models in Astrophysics and Particle Physics

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Isabelle John; [2019]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : From astrophysical and cosmological observations, it is known that most of the matter in the Universe is dark. This matter could be explainable by new particles, not included in the Standard Model of Particle Physics. READ MORE
