Hanyang University

The CMS group at Hanyang University became a member of CMS in December 2016 and currently has two postdocs, four PhD students and one Master’s degree student. The group is heavily involved in top-quark physics and is playing a leading role on the measurement of the top-quark pair production in association with heavy-flavour jets. The group also participates in the searches for flavour-changing neutral current in top-quark production and decay, and has an interest in searches for new physics in a top-quark sector.

The Hanyang University group is interested in contributing to the analysis tool area, which is the framework where CMS members can work as a team. The group is also involved in the muon system’s Resistive Plate Chamber for the high-luminosity scenarios in the Phase-2 Upgrade. In this Upgrade study, they are one of the groups looking to improve the sensitivity of the heavy-stable-charged-particle signature by making use of the precise timing information in the RPC.
