about

This thesis describes in detail a search for weakly interacting massive particles as possible dark matter candidates, making use of so-called mono-jet events. It includes a detailed description of the run-1 system, important operational challenges, and the upgrade for run-2. The nature of dark matter, which accounts for roughly 25% of the energy-matter content of the universe, is one of the biggest open questions in fundamental science. The analysis is based on the full set of proton-proton collisions collected by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at 's = 8 TeV. Special attention is given to the experimental challenges and analysis techniques, as well as the overall scientific context beyond particle physics. The results complement those of non-collider experiments and yield some of the strongest exclusion bounds on parameters of dark matter models by the end of the Large Hadron Collider run-1.

Details of the upgrade of the ATLAS Central Trigger for run-2 are also included.
 

The author obtained her Diploma in Physics at the University of Mainz (JGU), Germany, in 2011 upon completion of her research project on a differential cross-section measurement of Z-boson production with the ATLAS experiment. As a CERN doctoral student, funded by a Wolfgang-Gentner-Scholarship, she made essential contributions to the ...
