New results from electroweak SUSY searches using the ATLAS detector at the LHC

Supersymmetry is arguably one of the most widely studied BSM theories at the LHC. Owing to the higher cross-sections early run-II searches focussed on strongly produced sparticles (squarks and gluinos), and the exclusion limits in many simplified models are around or approaching 2 TeV. Constraints on the supersymmetric sleptons, charginos and neutralinos are much weaker as they can only be produced by the electroweak interaction. These processes provide a promising avenue for discovery and are also important to the concept of “naturalness" on SUSY. This seminar will present some of the latest results for the electroweak production of supersymmetric particles using the ATLAS experiment, as well as discussing future prospects and challenges in this area.
