Description

Various extensions of the Standard Model predict the existence of new types of quarks. We report on several search channels such as vector-like quarks decaying to a Higgs boson and a top quark or to a W boson and a b quark. The talk presents results from searches for new resonances decaying to a top-antitop pair, including the use of boosted top quark reconstruction techniques. These searches use data recorded in either 2011 or 2012 at sqrt(s)=7 TeV or 8 TeV, respectively, by the ATLAS experiment at the LHC.
