In an article published recently in CERN’s Experimental Physics Department newsletter, Ben Nachman – a staff scientist in Berkeley Lab’s Physics Division – briefly discusses recent measurements of jet substructure (JSS) that probe the fundamental and emergent properties of the strong force in new ways. JSS has emerged as a powerful framework for studying the standard model of physics, and it provides a key set of tools for probing nature at the highest energy scales accessible by terrestrial experiments. While not an experimental or theoretical consideration during the design of the original LHC experiments, JSS has been transformative for the physics program of the LHC and is now playing a central role in the physics case for future colliders.
