: The PADME experiment is designed to search for a hypothetical dark photon 𝐴 (cid:48) produced in positron-electron annihilation using a bunched positron beam at the Beam Test Facility of the INFN Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati. The expected sensitivity to the 𝐴 (cid:48) -photon mixing parameter 𝜖 is 10 − 3 , for 𝐴 (cid:48) mass ≤ 23.5 MeV/ 𝑐 2 after collecting ∼ 10 13 positrons-on-target. This paper presents the PADME detector status after commissioning in July 2019. In addition, the… 


Characterisation and performance of the PADME electromagnetic calorimeter
The PADME experiment at the LNF Beam Test Facility searches for dark photons produced in the annihilation of positrons with the electrons of a fixed target. The strategy is to look for the reaction

Development and test of a DRS4-based DAQ system for the PADME experiment at the DAΦNE BTF
A possible Dark Matter model postulates that it interacts with Standard Model particles only through a massive photon-like vector particle, called dark photon or A′. The PADME experiment at the DAΦNE
Evaluation of clustering algorithms at the < 1 GeV energy scale for the electromagnetic calorimeter of the PADME experiment
A possible solution to the Dark Matter problem postulates that it interacts with Standard Model particles through a new force mediated by a “portal”. If the new force has a U(1) gauge structure, the
New Gun Implementation and Performance of the DAΦNE LINAC
A new electron gun system has been developed for the DAΦNE LINAC, and put into operation since January 2014. Several elements of the system were upgraded, including a new grid pulser, an improved

Dark Sectors 2016 Workshop: Community Report
This report, based on the Dark Sectors workshop at SLAC in April 2016, summarizes the scientific importance of searches for dark sector dark matter and forces at masses beneath the weak-scale, the
ROOT: an object-oriented data analysis framework
The ROOT system in an Object Oriented framework for large scale data analysis contains an efficient hierarchical 00 database, a C ++ interpreter, and advanced statistical analysis (multi-dimensional histogramming, fitting, minimization, cluster finding algorithms) and visualization tools.
Proposal to Search for a Dark Photon in Positron on Target Collisions at DANE Linac
Photon-like particles are predicted in many extensions of the Standard Model. They have interactions similar to the photon, are vector bosons, and can be produced together with photons. The present
