Main Question or Discussion Point
Hello! I see that the experiments looking for electric dipole moment (EDM) of fundamental particles (especially for the electron) are able to place constraints on new BSM particles with masses of around 10 TeV or even more, in a model independent way i.e. we just need to measure a non-zero electron EDM to know that BSM physics exist, even if we won't be able to specify what this new physics is with a single experiment (ignore the standard model EDM for now). I was wondering to what extent do these searches make high energy experiments redundant? As far as I know at LHC (mainly CMS and ATLAS) they are usually looking for certain models of new physics (hence they have specific cuts) and their energy is well below 10 TeV. What kind of new physics can be found at LHC that couldn't be found using EDM experiments? Of course you need both kinds of experiments to approach the searches from different angles (at LHC you could actually produce that given particle, not just observe its effects indirectly) and confirm discoveries, but I was wondering if there are some models that are not sensitive at all to EDM but they are to high energy experiments.
