Searching for supersymmetric long-lived particles at MoEDAL

Speaker:

Abstract
The MoEDAL detector at LHC is sensitive to highly ionising objects such as magnetic monopoles or massive (meta-)stable electrically charged particles. The extremely low background and different detector design in MoEDAL, eliminates the requirements necessary in the ATLAS and CMS analyses for long-lived particles. On the other hand, MoEDAL requires slow-moving particles, resulting in sensitivity to massive states with typically small production cross sections. In this analysis, we compare the sensitivities of MoEDAL versus ATLAS/CMS for various long-lived particles in supersymmetric models, and we show scenarios where MoEDAL can provide discovery reach complementary to ATLAS and CMS.
