 Search for dark matter produced in association with a $Z$ boson in the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider / McLean, Kayla (University of Victoria) This dissertation presents a search for dark matter particles produced in association with a $Z$ boson in proton-proton collisions. The dataset consists of 139 fb$^{-1}$ of collision events with centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, and was collected by the ATLAS detector from 2015-2018 at the Large Hadron Collider.

 A fiber optic sensors monitoring system for the central beam pipe of the CMS experiment / Fienga, Francesco (CERN ; U. Naples (main) ; INFN, Naples) ; Szillasi, Zoltan (Debrecen, Inst. Nucl. Res.) ; Beni, Noemi (CERN) ; Irace, Andrea (Naples U.) ; Gaddi, Andrea (CERN) ; Zeuner, Wolfram (CERN) ; Ball, Austin (CERN) ; Buontempo, Salvatore (CERN ; INFN, Naples) ; Breglio, Giovanni (CERN ; U. Naples (main) ; INFN, Naples) In this paper we describe the main characteristics and experimental results, recorded in more than four years of data acquisition, of a temperature and strain monitoring system, called i-pipe, based on Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors arrays applied for the first time to a sector of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN): the central beam pipe (BP) of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS). The monitoring system, consisting of four arrays of 16 FBG sensors each, as better described in the text, is placed on four directives of the LHC section that passes inside the CMS experiment, namely the CMS central BP.

 Incoherent electron cloud effects in the Large Hadron Collider / Paraschou, K (CERN ; Aristotle U., Thessaloniki) ; Iadarola, G (CERN) During the operation of the Large Hadron Collider in 2018, the majority of physics data was collected with a beam energy of 6.5 TeV, a bunch spacing of 25 ns and with β-functions in the high luminosity interaction points equal to 30 cm. In this configuration, it was found through several experimental measurements that electron cloud induces a significant degradation of the beam lifetime.

 Destabilising effect of resistive transverse dampers / Métral, E (CERN) A resistive transverse damper is needed for multi-bunch operation in a machine like the CERN LHC and it is very efficient as it considerably reduces the necessary amount of nonlinearities (from octupoles) needed to reach beam stability through Landau damping. However, a resistive transverse damper also destabilizes the single-bunch motion below the transverse mode coupling instability (TMCI) intensity threshold (for zero chromaticity), introducing a new kind of instability, which has been called “ISR instability” (for Imaginary tune Split and Repulsion).

 Beam transfer function and stability diagram in the Large Hadron Collider / Tambasco, C (Ecole Polytechnique, Lausanne) ; Pieloni, T (Ecole Polytechnique, Lausanne) ; Buffat, X (CERN) ; Métral, E (CERN) Predictions of transverse instability thresholds in the LHC are based on the computation of Landau damping by calculating the stability diagram (SD). However any modification of the tune spread and/or particle distribution modifies the expected Landau damping in the beams.
