Search for Light Bosons in Exotic Decays of the 125 GeV Higgs Boson [DESY-THESIS-2020-007] Hamburg : Verlag Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron, DESY-THESIS 173 pp. (2020) [10.3204/PUBDB-2020-02143] = Dissertation, Universität Hamburg, 2020   A search for pairs of light bosons produced from decays of the 125 GeV Higgs boson is presented. The search covers the light boson mass region where the particle could have an enhanced decay rate to a pair of τ leptons, according to different models and scenarios.The leptonic decay channels corresponding to the 4τ and 2μ2τ final states are used.

Cross Section measurements of $t\bar{t}$ pair production in the boosted regime in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV with the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider [DESY-THESIS-2020-006] Hamburg : Verlag Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron, DESY-THESIS 274 pp. (2020) [10.3204/PUBDB-2020-02131] = Dissertation, Universität Hamburg, 2019   In this thesis measurements of the $t\bar{t}$ pair production at the very high transverse momentum are presented. When a top quark is produced with very high momentum the decay products are collimated in the direction of the quark, and they can be clustered within a single large cone size jet.

Emittance Measurements at Laser-Wakefield Accelerators 145 pp. (2020) = Dissertation, University of Hamburg, 2019 Laser-wakefield accelerators enable the generation of electron beams with initially nm-small emittances and GeV-level beam energies within cm-scale distances and are thereforepromissing candidates for drivers of future experiments. However, the percent-level energy-spreads and shot-to-shot fluctuations in beam quality can pose a limit to the transportability of plasma-generated beams, and further impete the measurement of the beam emittance using conventional methods.In the framework of this thesis, two energy-resolved phase-space diagnostics, a single-shot and a multi-shot method, have been implemented at the LUX laser-plasma accelerator.Electron beams from ionization injection are imaged by a compact quadrupole doublet from a virtual source into a dispersive electron spectrometer, which allows to measurethe beam emittance, beam size, divergence and phase-space correlation on the singleenergy-slice level.

Integrability in N = 1 Gauge Theories [DESY-THESIS-2020-005] Hamburg : Verlag Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron, DESY-THESIS 139 pp. (2020) [10.3204/PUBDB-2020-01501] = Dissertation, Universität Hamburg, 2020   In this thesis we investigate two questions that shed new light on fundamentalproperties of supersymmetric gauge theories.Our first topic deals with the question, which implications results for N = 4 Super-Yang-Mills have on theories with less symmetry. Specifically we conjecture that thedilatation operator in the SU(2, 1|1) sector of any N = 1 superconformal gauge theorycan be found from the one for N = 4 Super-Yang-Mills by a redefinition of the couplingconstant.

While nuclear motion is usually on the picosecond or femtosecond timescale, attosecond precision is necessary to directly observe the motion of electrons.

To study such dynamics, ultrafast light pulses are needed to trigger and capture the reaction.

To study the electron scattering dynamics, we use time- and angle- resolved photoelectron spectroscopy here. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); External link: Fulltext
