This work involves an analysis of data recorded at the Large Hadron Collider combined with a program to develop detectors for future collider experiments.
Using the full 4.9 fb-1 of 7 TeV data collected in 2011 and the 19.2 fb-1 of 8 TeV data collected in 2012, the B c(2S) meson has been observed with the ATLAS detector in the hadronic decay mode Bc(2S)→ Bcπ+π-, B c→J/ψπ. This new state has been found in the mass difference distribution with invariant mass 6842±7stat. ±4syst. MeV. To prepare for the high radiation environment at the High Luminosity LHC, diamond sensors are being developed. Their leakage current and resistivity are measured at fluences and temperatures relevant to the ATLAS upgrade. No evidence of dependence of the resistivity on fluence or temperature has been observed for the ranges [-10 °C, +20 °C] and [0, 1.0 × 1016 neq/cm2]. To study the radiation damage of the sensors in the ATLAS Pixel Detector, their leakage current is monitored at the level of single pixel modules. The result agrees with a prediction based on the Hamburg model.
