We explore the collider prospects of neutrino non-standard interaction with a Standard Model (SM) gauge-singlet leptonic scalar $\phi$ carrying two units of lepton-number-charge. These leptonic scalars are forbidden from interacting with the SM fermions at the renormalizable level and, if one allows for higher-dimensional operators, couple predominantly to SM neutrinos. For masses at or below the electroweak scale, $\phi$ decays exclusively into neutrinos. Its characteristic production… Expand
Cosmogenic neutrino fluxes under the effect of active-sterile secret interactions
Ultra High Energy cosmogenic neutrinos may represent a unique opportunity to unveil possible new physics interactions once restricted to the neutrino sector only. In the present paper we study theExpand
Solar neutrino scattering with electron into massive sterile neutrino
Abstract The recent Xenon1T excess can be explained by solar neutrino scattering with electron via a light mediator, either scalar or vector, in addition to many other explanations from the darkExpand
Intimate Relationship between Sterile Neutrino Dark Matter and ΔN_{eff}.
It is shown that, in a broad class of models, where the sterile neutrino dark matter relic density is generated by a light neutrinophilic mediator, there must be a lower bound on the amount of extra radiation in early Universe, in particular, ΔN_{eff}>0.12 at the cosmic microwave background (CMB) epoch.

Leptonic Scalars and Collider Signatures in a UV-complete Model
We study the non-standard interactions of neutrinos with light leptonic scalars (φ) in a global (B − L)-conserved ultraviolet (UV)-complete model. The model utilizes Type-II seesaw motivated neutrinoExpand
Probing Light Mediators in the Radiative Emission of Neutrino Pair

Light particles with baryon and lepton numbers
We consider light new particles $\chi$ and $\phi$ that carry baryon and lepton numbers. If these particles are lighter than nucleons they lead to exotic decays such as $p\to \pi^+ \chi$ and $p\toExpand
Neutrino self-interactions and double beta decay
Neutrino self-interactions ($\ensuremath{\nu}\mathrm{SI}$) beyond the Standard Model are an attractive possibility to soften cosmological constraints on neutrino properties and also to explain theExpand
The Hubble tension and a renormalizable model of gauged neutrino self-interactions
We present a simple extension of the Standard Model that leads to renormalizable long-range vector-mediated neutrino self-interactions. This model can resolve the Hubble tension by delaying the onsetExpand


Lepton-number-charged scalars and neutrino beamstrahlung
Experimentally, baryon number minus lepton number, $B-L$, appears to be a good global symmetry of nature. We explore the consequences of the existence of gauge-singlet scalar fields charged underExpand
Neutrinos and Collider Physics
We review the collider phenomenology of neutrino physics and the synergetic aspects at energy, intensity and cosmic frontiers to test the new physics behind the neutrino mass mechanism. InExpand
The Search for Heavy Majorana Neutrinos
The Majorana nature of neutrinos can be experimentally verified only via lepton-number violating processes involving charged leptons. We study 36 lepton-number violating (LV ) processes from theExpand
Distinguishing Dirac and Majorana neutrinos by their decays via Nambu-Goldstone bosons in the gravitational-anomaly model of neutrino masses
Neutrinos may acquire small Dirac or Majorana masses by new low-energy physics in terms of the chiral gravitational anomaly, as proposed by Dvali and Funcke (2016). This model predicts fast neutrinoExpand
Bounds on Neutrino-Scalar Yukawa Coupling
General neutrino-scalar couplings appear in many extensions of Standard Model. We can probe these neutrino-scalar couplings by leptonic decay of mesons and from heavy neutrino search. Our analysisExpand
