HEP seminar: Michaela Queitsch-Maitland (Manchester) – Latest results from the Forward Search Experiment (FASER) at the LHC

A rich physics program is beginning to be explored in the far-forward region at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). FASER (ForwArd Search ExpeRiment) was installed in 2020 and is designed to study the interactions of high energy neutrinos and to provide world-leading sensitivity to the discovery of new light and weakly coupled particles. It is located 480 m from the ATLAS interaction point on the collision axis line-of-sight and is shielded by 100 m of concrete and rock, creating an extremely low-background environment. This seminar will focus on the latest neutrino measurement and BSM search results from the FASER experiment using data collected in 2022 and 2023, and the future of FASER and the proposed Forward Physics Facility (FPF).
