"Search for disappearing tracks in proton-proton collisions at sqrt(s) = 8 TeV"

Many experimental searches for supersymmetry, a proposed extension to the Standard Model, have been performed at the Large Hadron Collider. Since no evidence of supersymmetry has been found, the energy scales of the theory continue to be pushed higher and higher. However, if some supersymmetric particles are long-lived they may have been missed by other conventional searches. In this talk, I will present the results of a search for long-lived supersymmetric charged particles that decay within the CMS detector and produce the experimental signature of a 'disappearing track.'
