Juska Pekkanen, M.Sc. (Tech.), will defend the dissertation "Jet Particology & Search for New Massive Particles - Jet composition studies and searches for new physics in dijet events using 13 TeV pp collisions with the CMS detector at the CERN LHC" on 5 December 2017 at 12 noon at the Kumpula Campus (University of Helsinki, HIP), auditorium Physicum, D101, Gustaf Hällströmin katu 2, Helsinki. Finnish physicists are searching for new elementary particles with record-breaking energies within an international group at the CMS-experiment, which measures the proton-proton collisions produced by the CERN LHC. By using jets of particles originating from quarks and gluons the researchers have probed the sub-atomic world up to 8 TeV energies, but so far find no signs of new particles.
