Supersymmetry breaking scale

In particle physics, supersymmetry breaking scale is the energy scale where supersymmetry breaking takes place.

If supersymmetry fully solves the hierarchy problem, this scale should not be far from 1000 GeV, and therefore it should be accessible at the LHC and other future accelerators. This scenario is called low energy supersymmetry.

However, supersymmetry may also be broken at high energy scales. Finally, Nature does not have to be supersymmetric at any scale.
