The triplet scalars $(\Delta=\Delta^{++},\Delta^{+},\Delta^{0})$, utilized in the so-called Type-II seesaw model to explain the lightness of neutrinos, would generate nonstandard interactions (NSI) for neutrino propagating in matter. We investigate the prospects to probe these interactions in long baseline neutrino oscillation experiments. We analyze the upper bounds that the proposed DUNE experiment might set on the nonstandard parameters and numerically derive upper bounds, as function of the…

Exploring SMEFT induced nonstandard interactions: From COHERENT to neutrino oscillations

We investigate the prospects of next-generation neutrino oscillation experiments DUNE, T2HK and JUNO including TAO within Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT). We also re-interpret COHERENT

Type-II seesaw scalar triplet model at a 100 TeV pp collider: discovery and higgs portal coupling determination

A bstractWe investigate the collider phenomenology of the scalar triplet particles in the Type-II seesaw model at a 100 TeV pp collider. Depending on triplet vacuum expectation value vΔ, the dominant

Left-right symmetric models and long baseline neutrino experiments

The Standard Model has been the most successful theory in the history of particle physics, but it fails to account for many important questions, such as the origin of neutrino mass. The so-called



Measuring the leptonic CP phase in neutrino oscillations with nonunitary mixing

Non-unitary neutrino mixing implies an extra CP violating phase that can fake the leptonic Dirac CP phase $\delta_{CP}$ of the simplest three-neutrino mixing benchmark scheme. This would hinder the

Probing doubly charged Higgs bosons at the LHC through photon initiated processes

We show that the photon-photon fusion process contributes significantly to the pair production of doubly charged Higgs bosons at the LHC at a level comparable to the Drell-Yan production. We

Sensitivity of the T2HKK experiment to nonstandard interactions

If the flavor dependent non-standard interactions (NSI) in neutrino propagation exist, then the matter effect is modified and the modification is parametrized by the dimensionless parameter

Present and future bounds on non-standard neutrino interactions

We consider Non-Standard neutrino Interactions (NSI), described by four-fermion operators of the form (αγνβ)(γf), where f is an electron or first generation quark. We assume these operators are

Non-standard interactions in propagation at the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment

A bstractWe study the sensitivity of current and future long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments to the effects of dimension six operators affecting neutrino propagation through Earth, commonly

Probing CP violation with non-unitary mixing in long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments: DUNE as a case study

When neutrino masses arise from the exchange of neutral heavy leptons, as in most seesaw schemes, the effective lepton mixing matrix N describing neutrino propagation is non-unitary, hence neutrinos

Lepton Number as the Fourth Color

Universal strong, weak, and electromagnetic interactions of leptons and hadrons are generated by gauging a non-Abelian renormalizable anomaly-free subgroup of the fundamental symmetry structure

Global constraints on heavy neutrino mixing

A bstractWe derive general constraints on the mixing of heavy Seesaw neutrinos with the SM fields from a global fit to present flavour and electroweak precision data. We explore and compare both a
