Kinetic Mixing of the Photon with Hidden U(1)s in String Phenomenology

Embeddings of the standard model in type II string theory typically contain a variety of U(1) gauge factors arising from D-branes in the bulk. In general, there is no reason why only one of these -

Light from the hidden sector: Experimental signatures of paraphotons

Optical precision experiments are a powerful tool to explore hidden sectors of a variety of standard-model extensions with potentially tiny couplings to photons. An important example is given by

Naturally light hidden photons in LARGE volume string compactifications

Extra ``hidden'' U(1) gauge factors are a generic feature of string theory that is of particular phenomenological interest. They can kinetically mix with the Standard Model photon and are thereby

Magnetic mixing ? electric minicharges from magnetic monopoles

Many extensions of the Standard Model require the existence of a ``hidden'' sector. We consider settings where the hidden sector in the infrared contains a U(1) gauge factor with magnetic monopoles,

Strong fields and recycled accelerator parts as a laboratory for fundamental physics

Over the last few years it has become increasingly clear that low energy, but high precision experiments provide a powerful and complementary window to physics beyond the Standard Model. In this note

Challenging the stability of light millicharged dark matter

We investigate the cosmological stability of light bosonic dark matter carrying a tiny electric charge. In the wave-like regime of high occupation numbers, annihilation into gauge bosons can be

Kinetic mixing at strong coupling

A common feature of many string-motivated particle physics models is additional strongly coupled $U(1)$'s. In such sectors, electric and magnetic states have comparable mass, and integrating out

The Low Energy Phenomenology of a Dark Force

This thesis investigates an area of beyond the Standard Model (BSM) phenomenology associated with the presence of additional light, “weakly interacting slim particles” (WISPs). Particular attention

Kinetic mixing and the supersymmetric gauge hierarchy

Localized U(1) gauge fields, millicharged particles, and holography

We consider U(1) gauge fields in a slice of AdS{sub 5} with bulk and boundary mass parameters. The zero mode of a bulk U(1) gauge field can be localized either on the UV or IR brane. This leads to a

LIMITS OF ELECTRODYNAMICS: PARAPHOTONS?

1. The possible existence of new long-range interactions has attracted increasing attention during recent times. To a certain degree, this is related to various symmetry and supersymmetry schemes in

Stueckelberg Z ' extension with kinetic mixing and millicharged dark matter from the hidden sector

An analysis is given of the Stueckelberg extension of the standard model with a hidden sector gauge group U(1){sub X} where the mass growth for the extra gauge boson occurs via the Stueckelberg

Need for purely laboratory-based axionlike particle searches

The PVLAS signal has led to the proposal of many experiments searching for light bosons coupled to photons. The coupling strength probed by these near-future searches is, however, far from the
