Summary of the dedicated ATLAS searches for top squark (stop) pair production based on pp collision data taken at √s = 13 TeV. Exclusion limits at 95% CL are shown in the stop1-neutralino1 mass plane. The dashed and solid lines show the expected and observed limits, respectively, including all uncertainties except the theoretical signal cross section uncertainty (PDF and scale). Four decay modes are considered separately with 100% BR: t̃_{1} → t + χ̃_{1}^{0} (where the t̃_{1} is mostly right), t̃_{1} → W + b + χ̃_{1}^{0} (3-body decay for m(t̃_{1}) < m(t) + m(χ̃_{1}^{0})), t̃_{1} → c + χ̃_{1}^{0} and t̃_{1} → f+f'+b+χ̃_{1}^{0} (4-body decay). The latter two decay modes are superimposed.

Note that these plots overlay contours belonging to different stop decay channels, different sparticle mass hierarchies, and simplified decay scenarios. Care must be taken when interpreting them.

Summary of 95% CL exclusion limits in the (lightest stop, lightest neutralino)
mass plane for direct stop and sbottom production assuming a SUSY model
with the bino as the lightest SUSY particle (LSP) and the wino as the next-to-
LSP, and the wino mass eigenstates (χ_{1}^{±}, χ_{2}^{0}) approximately twice as heavy
as the bino LSP (χ_{1}^{0}). This scenario is motivated by gauge unification at the
GUT scale. The stop and sbottom can decay in several modes to the LSP, all
of which are considered (as indicated on the plot). The corresponding
branching ratios vary across the mass plane, and the sum of the branching
ratios is bound to unity. The results are shown separately for a positive and a
negative higgsino mass parameter (μ>0 and μ<0), as this influences the
branching ratios.

Summary of 95% CL exclusion limits in the (lightest stop, lightest neutralino) mass plane for direct stop production assuming a SUSY model with the higgsino as the lightest SUSY particle (LSP), and a mass-splitting amongst the higgsino mass eigenstates (χ̃^{0}_{2}, χ̃^{±}_{1}, and χ̃^{0}_{1}) of 5 GeV.

arguments and provides a dark matter candidate with the right relic density.

stop1 → b+C1 with C1->W(*)+N1 at BR=100% and stop1 mass at 300 GeV. The dashed
and solid lines show the expected and observed limits, respectively, including all
uncertainties except the theoretical signal cross section uncertainty (PDF and scale).

Exclusion limits at 95% CL in the (lightest stop, lightest neutralino) mass plane for direct stop production. Different assumptions regarding the lightest (LSP) and next to lightest supersymmetric particle (NLSP) are shown. In the wino model, the wino mass eigenstates (χ̃^{±}_{1}, χ̃^{0}_{2}) are twice as heavy as the bino. The results are shown separately for a positive and a negative higgsino mass parameter (μ>0 and μ<0), as this influences the χ̃^{0}_{2} decay branching ratios. The pure wino limit from the ATLAS electroweak jigsaw analysis is also shown in yellow for the same hypothesis on the wino mass eigenstates. The higgsino LSP scenario assumes a mass-splitting amongst the higgsino mass eigenstates (χ̃^{0}_{2}, χ̃^{±}_{1} and χ̃^{0}_{1}) of 5 GeV. The results are shown separately for different stop left-right mixing, as this influences the t&̃_{1} decay branching ratios. The pure higgsino limit from the ATLAS electroweak search in scenarios with compressed mass spectra is also superimposed in dark green. The open contours indicate regions of the mass plane not yet explored for that hypothesis.

Exclusion limits at 95% CL in the (lightest sbottom, lightest neutralino) mass plane for direct sbottom production. The lightest neutralino (χ̃_{1}^{0}) is assumed to be the lightest SUSY particle (LSP). Several different decay scenarios are shown, along with different parameterizations of the intermediate particles in the models.

Exclusion limits at 95% CL in the (lightest sbottom, lightest neutralino) mass plane for direct sbottom production. The lightest neutralino (χ^{0}_{1}) is assumed to be the lightest SUSY particle (LSP). Two different decay scenarios are shown, covering different relative rates of the decays of b_{1} → b χ^{0}_{1} and b_{1} → t χ^{±}_{1}. In the latter case, the lightest chargino (χ^{±}_{1}) is assumed to be the next-to-LSP, with a mass almost degenerate with the LSP.

Exclusion limits for colour-neutral ttbar/bbbar+a pseudoscalar models as a function of the mediator mass for a dark matter mass of 1 GeV. The limits are calculated at 95% CL and are expressed in terms of the ratio of the excluded cross-section to the nominal cross-section for a coupling assumption of g = g_q = g_chi = 1. The solid (dashed) lines show the observed (expected) exclusion limits for different analyses.

Exclusion limits for colour-neutral ttbar/bbbar+phi scalar models as a function of the mediator mass for a dark matter mass of 1 GeV. The limits are calculated at 95% CL and are expressed in terms of the ratio of the excluded cross-section to the nominal cross-section for a coupling assumption of g = g_q = g_chi = 1. The solid (dashed) lines show the observed (expected) exclusion limits for different analyses.

Mass reach of the ATLAS searches for Supersymmetry. A representative selection of the available search results is shown. Results are quoted for the nominal cross section in both a region of near-maximal mass reach and a demonstrative alternative scenario, in order to display the range in model space of search sensitivity. Some limits depend on additional assumptions on the mass of the intermediate states, as described in the references provided in the plot. In some cases these additional dependencies are indicated by darker bands showing different model parameters.

Each vertical bar is a 1D projection of the fraction of model points excluded, with colour coding representing the fraction of model points excluded for each sparticle. One interesting feature can be seen in the case of the $\tilde{\chi}_1^\pm$ where the fraction of model points decreases to almost 0 at 1 TeV and then increases again at around 1.5 TeV. This is because the chargino mass is correlated with the neutralino mass in the case of the wino and Higgsino model points and so a heavy $\tilde{\chi}_1^\pm$ means a heavy LSP. The decrease in sensitivity to the chargino around 1 TeV is an artefact of weighting the bino model points by a factor of 1/24, because in bins around this region there are relatively few bino-LSP model points and so their contribution to the fraction of model points excluded is negligible. As the chargino mass increases, there are fewer model points with wino or Higgsino models and so the fraction of model points excluded is then only representative of the bino-LSP models.

Exclusion limits at 95% CL for 8 TeV analyses in the (m_{0}, m_{1/2}) plane for the MSUGRA/CMSSM model with the remaining parameters set to tan(β) = 30, A_{0} = -2m_{0}, μ > 0. Part of the model plane accommodates a lightest neutral scalar Higgs boson mass of 125 GeV.

This plot is from: 1507.05525 (Summary of the searches for squarks and gluinos using sqrt(s) = 8 TeV pp collisions with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC).
