Challenging the Standard Model with the scrutiny of b to qll transitions

Project description

Rare decays of b hadrons could hint at new physics beyond the Standard Model

The EU-funded Chiaroscuro project seeks to discover new physical phenomena not predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics. Researchers will conduct precision measurements to find discrepancies between the predictions of the Standard Model and experimental observations that could hint the manifestation of new particles or unknown physics. Using the Large Hadron Collider beauty detector, designed to capture hadrons containing b quarks (b hadrons), researchers will try to detect the rare transitions from b quarks to s or d quarks. Researchers will study for the first time the angular properties of the decay products of these transitions for a variety of b hadrons.
