Generation and Simulation of R-Hadrons in the ATLAS Experiment

ATLAS Collaboration

Research output: Other contribution


This note details the generation and simulation of metastable, long-lived particles with colour charge. In Supersymmetry models, the colourless states these form when combined with Standard Model partons are known as R-hadrons. The mass spectrum of R-hadrons, their generation using Pythia8, their simulation in the ATLAS detector, and the modelling of their possible stopping are described in detail. This model of R-hadrons is being used for the full Run-2 dataset searches with the ATLAS experiment.
