Short Sharp Science: LHC not yet a supersymmetry killer: Last week, however, anticipated signs of SUSY were missing from the early data generated by the LHC's two experiments, ATLAS and CMS. Is there really cause for concern?
As described in Physics World, ATLAS and CMS have been exploring a particular version of supersymmetry called the constrained minimal supersymmetric standard model (CMSSM) with minimal supergravity (mSUGRA) - the easiest one to study.
And it is within this context that these experiments have so far failed to uncover evidence for SUSY. They have found no squarks and gluinos with a mass of less than 700 giga-electronvolts (GeV).
