We consider a hidden sector model of dark matter which is charged under a hidden U(1)X gauge symmetry. Kinetic mixing of U(1)X with the Standard Model hypercharge U(1)Y is allowed to provide communication between the hidden sector and the Standard Model sector. We present various limits on the kinetic mixing parameter and the hidden gauge coupling constant coming from various low energy observables, electroweak precision tests, and the right thermal relic density of the dark matter. Saturating…

Cosmic Strings in Hidden Sectors: 1. Radiation of Standard Model Particles
In hidden sector models with an extra U(1) gauge group, new fields can interact with the Standard Model only through gauge kinetic mixing and the Higgs portal. After the U(1) is spontaneously broken,
Kinetic mixing and symmetry breaking dependent interactions of the dark photon
We examine spontaneous symmetry breaking of a renormalisable U( 1) × U( 1) gauge theory coupled to fermions when kinetic mixing is present. We do not assume that the kinetic mixing parameter is
Hidden Photons in connection to Dark Matter
Light extra U(1) gauge bosons, so called hidden photons, which reside in a hidden sector have attracted much attention since they are a well motivated feature of many scenarios beyond the Standard
New limits on light hidden sectors from fixed-target experiments
A bstractNew physics can be light if it is hidden, coupling very weakly to the Standard Model. In this work we investigate the discovery prospects of Abelian hidden sectors in lower-energy
The ZZ′ kinetic mixing in the light of the recent direct and indirect dark matter searches
Several constructions, of stringy origins or not, generate abelian gauge extensions of the Standard Model (SM). Even if the particles of the SM are not charged under this extra U'(1), one cannot
Hidden Dipole Dark Matter
We consider models where a hidden U(1) 0 interacts with the Standard Model via kinetic mixing. We assume the dark matter is neutral under this U(1) 0 , but interacts with it via higher dimension
Dark Higgs models at the 7 TeV LHC
A bstractWe study how collider data and electroweak precision observables affect the parameter space of models including a new dark force mediated by a massive U(1) gauge boson. It acquires mass via
Specific Dark Matter signatures from hidden U(1)
Several constructions motivate the existence of a dark $U(1)_D$ gauge boson which interacts with the Standard Model only through its kinetic mixing or loop induced processes. We describe two typical
Radiatively decaying scalar dark matter through U(1) mixings and the Fermi 130 GeV gamma-ray line
Abstract In light of the recent observation of the Fermi-LAT 130 GeV gamma-ray line, we suggest a model of scalar dark matter in a hidden sector, which can decay into two (hidden) photons. The
Multiple Higgs-portal and gauge-kinetic mixings
We develop a phenomenological formalism for mixing effects between the Standard Model and hidden-sector fields, motivated by dark matter in the Universe as well as string theories. The scheme


Dark matter and sub-GeV hidden U(1) in GMSB models
Motivated by the recent PAMELA and ATIC data, one is led to a scenario with heavy vector-like dark matter in association with a hidden U(1)X sector below GeV scale. Realizing this idea in the context
Very narrow shadow extra Z boson at colliders
We consider the phenomenological consequences of a hidden Higgs sector extending the standard model (SM), in which the 'shadow Higgs' are uncharged under the SM gauge groups. We consider a simple
Dark matter and Higgs boson collider implications of fermions in an Abelian-gauged hidden sector
Abstract We add fermions to an Abelian-gauged hidden sector. We show that the lightest can be the dark matter with the right thermal relic abundance, and discovery is within reach of upcoming dark
Constraints on the parity-violating couplings of a new gauge boson
Abstract High-energy particle physics experiments allow for the possible existence of a new light, very weakly coupled, neutral gauge boson (the U boson). This one permits for light (spin- 1 2 or
Light dark matter from the U(1)X sector in the NMSSM with gauge mediation
Cosmic ray anomalies observed by PAMELA and Fermi-LAT experiments may be interpreted by heavy (TeV-scale) dark matter annihilation enhanced by Sommerfeld effects mediated by a very light (sub-GeV)
Hidden fermion as milli-charged dark matter in Stueckelberg Z' model
We augment the hidden Stueckelberg Z' model by a pair of Dirac fermions in the hidden sector, in which the Z' has a coupling strength comparable to weak scale coupling. We show that this hidden

Hadron and linear collider probes of hidden-sector gauge bosons
Intersecting $D$-brane theories motivate the existence of exotic $U(1)$ gauge bosons that only interact with the standard model through kinetic mixing with hypercharge. We analyze an effective field
U-boson production in e+ e- annihilations, psi and Upsilon decays, and Light Dark Matter
We recall how a new light gauge boson emerged in Supersymmetric extensions of the Standard Model with an extra singlet superfield, and how it could behave very much as a light pseudoscalar, with the
Stückelino dark matter in anomalous U(1)′ models
We study a possible dark matter candidate in the framework of a minimal anomalous U(1)′ extension of the MSSM. It turns out that in a suitable decoupling limit the Stückelino, the fermionic degree of
