Many extensions of the Standard Model of particle physics predict the existence of a pair of charged Higgs bosons H+ and H-. We search for charged Higgs bosons decaying into a tau lepton and a neutrino.

Public results of studies using 2011 data

  • Search for charged Higgs bosons decaying via H+->tau nu in ttbar events using 4.6 fb^-1 of collision data at sqrt(s)=7 TeV with the ATLAS detector ATLAS-CONF-2012-011 (Moriond 2012)
  • Search for a charged Higgs boson decaying via H+ to tau(lep)+nu in ttbar events with one or two light leptons in the final state using 1.03/fb of pp collision data recorded at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV with the ATLAS detector ATLAS-CONF-2011-151 (HCP 2011)
