Mohamed Gouighri, is the first grantee of a scholarship awarded through the
agreement of 25 June 2009 between CERN, SKF Foundation, Moroccan
Universities taking part to the LHC programme and the Académie Royale Hassan II.
It is worth
pointing out that the fellowship was funded by the Hassan II Academy and by the
Carnot Foundation. We are glad to report that Mohamed has been invited to give
a seminar to the conference :
« Beyond the Standard Model: Results with the 7
TeV LHC Collision Data”
place at ICTP (International Center for Theoretical Physics) in Trieste
how he summarizes his presentation:
presentation at the Conference “Beyond the Standard Model” was about the ATLAS
B physics program (ATLAS is one of the four main experiments at the LHC). I was
selected by the ATLAS collaboration
to give a review talk on this broad topic.
reported about production cross sections, searches for rare b quark decay
signatures and CP violation effects in B-event. Decays of B-mesons are
sensitive to New Physics through second order effects and provide an alternative
window into physics beyond the Standard Model.
personal contribution to the Physics program of ATLAS is mainly on the CP
violation studies, using Bd->J/psi Ks channel. I am also testing new
theoretical predictions, like the Heavy Quark Effective Theory (HQET) and
the perturbative QCD (pQCD) model by comparing lifetime measurements of the Bd
meson and the Ld baryon.
more technical side, I am validating new vertexing tools which takes the full
and exact ATLAS detector informations (for exemple: material map, exact
magnetic field ...) into account.
