TITLE: Searching for massive new particles using ionization energy loss and time of flight at ATLAS
During Run 2, the LHC achieved collisions with a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, potentially allowing us to produce new fundamental particles of higher masses than ever before. Using ionization energy loss and time-of-flight, we can reconstruct the mass of heavy new particles predicted in a variety of models. In this talk, we discuss the excess seen in the first-wave effort of a search using the Run 2 dataset at ATLAS, and introduce an expanded search including time-of-flight. We present future prospects and discuss the hardware upgrades necessary to continue searching for new physics at the High Luminosity LHC.
