Description

Leptoquarks are hypothetical particles with non-zero lepton and baryon numbers, predicted by many extensions of the Standard Model, and can provide an explanation for the similarity between the quark and lepton sectors. Searches for pair-produced scalar leptoquarks have been performed with final states including charged leptons. In this talk, recent ATLAS results on searches for leptoquarks and new particles with similar signatures using LHC Run 1 data are presented. First LHC Run-2 results will be included if available.
