Faculty: Professor

Teruki Kamon is a member of the CDF and CMS collaborations. His primary thrust is to test particle physics models that provide candidate for cold dark matter. Supersymmetry (SUSY) is one of the leading candidates. He has pioneered the SUSY searches in its final states involving electrons, muons, and the third generation particles (e.g., tau lepton) at hadron colliders.

Selected Publications

A. M. Sirunyan, et al. (CMS Collaboration). “Search for Supersymmetry with a Compressed Mass Spectrum in Events with a Soft τ Lepton, a Highly Energetic Jet, and Large Missing Transverse Momentum in Proton-Proton Collisions at /s = 13 TeV.” Phys. Rev. Lett., 124(4), 041803, Jan 2020. ** This is the first search for supersymmetry in events with an experimental signature of one soft, hadronically decaying τ lepton, one energetic jet from initial-state radiation, and large transverse momentum imbalance at the LHC.

(CMS Collaboration). “Search for supersymmetry with a compressed mass spectrum in the vector boson fusion topology with 1-lepton and 0-lepton final states in proton-proton collisions at /s = 13 TeV.” Journal of High Energy Physics, 2019(8), Aug 2019. ** This is a unique research paper at CMS and ATLAS on search for highly compressed-mass supersymmetry (SUSY) in the vector boson fusion (VBF) topology in proton-proton collisions. The search for compressed-mass SUSY in VBF processes is dominated by my group and close collaborators.
