The diphoton excess at the LHC

TYPEHigh Energy Physics Seminar
Speaker:Liron Barak
Organizer:Shlomit Tarem
Time:13:30 - 15:30
Location:Lidow Nathan Rosen (300)
Remark:Special seminar

Early results from the Run-II of the Large Hadron Collider as recently presented by the ATLAS and CMS experiments show hints of an excess in the di-photon mass spectrum near 750 GeV. While these hints might well turn out to be statistical fluctuations, they could also be first indications of a new physics phenomenon beyond the Standard Model. I will review the process to get those exciting results as well as describe the plans for the near future
