# The search for beauty-fully bound tetraquarks

## Speakers

• Dr. Ciaran HUGHES

## Content

Within the last year it has been proposed that an exotic tetraquark state composed of two $b$-quarks and two $\bar{b}$-quarks could exist sufficiently far below the $2\eta_b$ threshold so to be found experimentally at the LHC. Such a state would be particularly clean theoretically because of its heavy quark content and, if it really is too light to decay to $2\eta_b$, annihilation and threshold effects would be small. Using an NRQCD methodology, we present the results of our search for this exciting state.
