The hunt for B-L violation at ATLAS: Connecting Supersymmetry and the neutrino sector for novel searches now and at the HL-LHC

There are several mysteries that require solutions beyond the Standard Model, and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is racing to find evidence of new physics.  Searches are presented for rare decays of possible superpartners that violate baryon-lepton (B-L) number symmetry through couplings related to the neutrino sector, opening up new channels of discovery while avoiding the common simplifications of Supersymmetry models. The high luminosity upgrade of the LHC and the ATLAS experiment will greatly expand our reach in observing rare new processes.  Several of the technical challenges in preparing the readout electronics of the charged-particle tracking silicon strip detector for this busy, high-radiation environment are discussed.
