Review of Particle Physics, 2016-2017
The Review summarizes much of particle physics and cosmology. Using data from previous editions, plus 3,283 new measurements from 899 papers, we list, evaluate, and average measured properties of
A facility to search for hidden particles at the CERN SPS: the SHiP physics case.
It is demonstrated that the SHiP experiment has a unique potential to discover new physics and can directly probe a number of solutions of beyond the standard model puzzles, such as neutrino masses, baryon asymmetry of the Universe, dark matter, and inflation.
Calculation of the axion mass based on high-temperature lattice quantum chromodynamics
This work determines the axion mass using lattice QCD, assuming that these particles are the dominant component of dark matter, and determines the universal axionic angle that corresponds to the initial condition of the authors' Universe.
Revisiting the SN1987A gamma-ray limit on ultralight axion-like particles
We revise the bound from the supernova SN1987A on the coupling of ultralight axion-like particles (ALPs) to photons. In a core-collapse supernova, ALPs would be emitted via the Primakoff process, and
The Low-Energy Frontier of Particle Physics
Most embeddings of the Standard Model into a more unified theory, in particular those based on supergravity or superstrings, predict the existence of a hidden sector of particles that have only very
WISPy cold dark matter
Very weakly interacting slim particles (WISPs), such as axion-like particles (ALPs) or hidden photons (HPs), may be non-thermally produced via the misalignment mechanism in the early universe and
Review of Particle Physics
The complete Review(both volumes) is published online on the website of the Particle Data Group(http://pdg.lbl.gov) and in a journal. Volume 1 is available in print as thePDG Book. AParticle Physics
Working Group Report: New Light Weakly Coupled Particles
Dark sectors, consisting of new, light, weakly-coupled particles that do not interact with the known strong, weak, or electromagnetic forces, are a particularly compelling possibility for new
Any Light Particle Search II -- Technical Design Report
This document constitutes an excerpt of the Technical Design Report for the second stage of the "Any Light Particle Search" (ALPS-II) at DESY as submitted to the DESY PRC in August 2012 and reviewed
