  • We describe an experiment to search for a new vector boson A′ with weak coupling α′ ≳ 6 × 10−8α to electrons (α = e2/4π) in the mass range 65 MeV < mA′ < 550 MeV. New vector bosons with such small couplings arise naturally from a small kinetic mixing of the “dark photon” A′ with the photon — one of the very few ways in which new forces can couple to the Standard Model — and have received considerable attention as an explanation of various dark matter related anomalies. A′ bosons are produced by… CONTINUE READING
