The detector final state is the core element of particle physics analysis as it defines the physical characteristics that form the basis of the measurement presented in a published paper. Although they are a crucial part of the research process, detector final states are not yet formally described, published in papers or searchable in a convenient way. This paper aims at providing an ontology pattern for the detector final state that can be used as a building block for an ontology covering the whole particle physics analysis life cycle.
