How does one look inside of the proton?

Presently Generalized Parton Distributions allow us novel three-dimensional description of the proton structure when both transverse and longitudinal degrees of freedom are taken into account. A tool to experimentally constraint GPDs is Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering. Main steps in extracting DVCS cross-section in the framework of COMPASS experiment are discussed in detail hinting path towards the proton tomography.

Looking for Beyond Standard Model short-lived particles with secondary production

Many Beyond Standard Model (BSM) physics scenarios contain new long-lived particles (LLPs), leading to interesting experimental signatures such as e.g. highly-displaced decay signatures. Examples of such minimal models are so-called portals which include coupling of New Physics particle to SM particles through a renormalizable interaction. Going beyond such simple realisations of BSM physics, one can introduce non-minimal particle content where lighter particle can upscatter into heavier one in front of the detector, leading to interplay between short and long-lived regimes.

New Software Technologies at the LHCb Experiment

The LHCb Experiment is one of the largest detectors located at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN (The European Organization for Nuclear Research). With the data collected during LHC Run 1 and Run 2, the LHCb Experiment has successfully performed a large number of measurements in heavy flavour physics. In order to perform further measurements with higher precision, the LHCb Experiment is currently installing a major detector upgrade for Run 3 of data taking so that it will be able to process events with 5 times higher luminosity.
