# Contributions to ΔNeff from the dark photon of U(1)T3R

@article{Dutta2020ContributionsT, title={Contributions to $\Delta$Neff from the dark photon of U(1)T3R}, author={Bhaskar Dutta and Sumit Ghosh and Jason Kumar}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2020}, volume={102} }

We consider the effect on early Universe cosmology of the dark photon associated with the gauging of $U(1)_{T3R}$, a symmetry group under which only right-handed Standard Model fermions transform non-trivially. We find that cosmological constraints on this scenario are qualitatively much more severe than on other well-studied cases of a new $U(1)$ gauge group, because the dark photon couples to chiral fermions. In particular, the dark photon of $U(1)_{T3R}$ is always produced and equilibrates…

### How dark is the νR-philic dark photon?

- PhysicsJournal of High Energy Physics

Abstract
We consider a generic dark photon that arises from a hidden U(1) gauge symmetry imposed on right-handed neutrinos (νR). Such a νR-philic dark photon is naturally dark due to the absence of…

Abstract
The low-energy U(1)B−L gauge symmetry is well-motivated as part of beyond Standard Model physics related to neutrino mass generation. We show that a light B − L gauge boson Z′ and the…
