The start-up of the Large Hadron Collider represents an epochal event in the history of Particle Physics, expected to deliver step-change advancements in our understanding of the sub-nuclear world and of our Universe. The search for supersymmetry (SUSY), one of the most accredited and exciting extensions to the Standard Model, is one of the main physics objectives at ATLAS. I will discuss the main supersymmetric signatures at ATLAS and illustrate the experiment's search strategies and its physics potential to discover SUSY.
The experimental particle physics seminar series invites speakers from all over Europe to discuss the latest developments at the LHC, accelerator and non-accelerator based neutrino physics, hardware R&D and astroparticle physics. .
