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?

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

Light, long-lived B − L gauge and Higgs bosons at the DUNE near detector

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

Opportunities for probing U(1)T3R with light mediators

We consider strategies for using new datasets to probe scenarios in which light right-handed SM fermions couple to a new gauge group, $U(1)_{T3R}$. This scenario provides a natural explanation for

μ→eγ selecting scalar leptoquark solutions for the (g−2)e,μ puzzles

We investigate all potentially viable scenarios that can produce the chiral enhancement required to simultaneously explain the $(g-2)_{e}$ and $(g-2)_{\mu}$ data with either a single scalar

Refined bounds on MeV-scale thermal dark sectors from BBN and the CMB

New light states thermally coupled to the Standard Model plasma alter the expansion history of the Universe and impact the synthesis of the primordial light elements. In this work, we carry out an

Sub-GeV dark matter model

We propose an extension of the Standard Model gauge symmetry by the gauge group $U(1)_{T3R}$ in order to address the Yukawa coupling hierarchy between the third generation fermions and the first two

Exact Left-Right Symmetry and Spontaneous Violation of Parity

Left-right-symmetric gauge models suggested previously to describe all interactions of elementary particles within a single unified framework are further shown to have the desirable property that

New physics from electric charge quantization

Electric charge quantization is re-examined in the standard model. For one generation of fermions, electric charge is quantized in the standard model (SM). Electric charge quantization results from

Cosmology with a very light Lμ − Lτ gauge boson

A bstractIn this paper, we explore in detail the cosmological implications of an abelian Lμ − Lτ gauge extension of the Standard Model featuring a light and weakly coupled Z′. Such a scenario is
