The production of a μ+ μ- pair from the scattering of a muon neutrino off the Coulomb field of a nucleus, known as neutrino trident production, is a subweak process that has been observed in only a couple of experiments. As such, we show that it constitutes an exquisitely sensitive probe in the search for new neutral currents among leptons, putting the strongest constraints on well-motivated and well-hidden extensions of the standard model gauge group, including the one coupled to the…

Probing light gauge bosons in tau neutrino experiments

The tau neutrino is probably the least studied particle in the SM, with only a handful of interaction events being identified so far. This can in part be attributed to their small production rate in

Non-standard neutrino and Z′ interactions at the FASERν and the LHC

Abstract We study the impact of non-standard neutrino interactions in the context of a new gauge boson Z′ in neutral-current deep-inelastic scattering performed in ForwArd Search ExpeRiment-ν

Neutrino Oscillations and Non-standard Interactions

Current neutrino experiments measure the neutrino mixing parameters with an unprecedented accuracy. The upcoming generation of experiments will be sensitive to subdominant effects that can give

Neutrino Masses, Leptonic Flavor Mixing and Muon (g-2) in the Seesaw Model with the U(1) Lμ - Lτ Gauge Symmetry

The latest measurements of the anomalous muon magnetic moment aμ ≡ (gμ − 2)/2 show a 4.2σ discrepancy between the theoretical prediction of the Standard Model and the experimental observations. In

Lepton flavor violating non-standard interactions via light mediators

A bstractNon-Standard neutral current Interactions (NSIs) of neutrinos with matter can alter the pattern of neutrino oscillation due to the coherent forward scattering of neutrinos on the medium.

Probing light mediators and (g − 2)μ through detection of coherent elastic neutrino nucleus scattering at COHERENT

Abstract We present the constraints on the parameters of several light boson mediator models obtained from the analysis of the current data of the COHERENT CEνNS experiment. We consider a variety of

Prospects for beyond the Standard Model physics searches at the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment

Of the many potential beyond the Standard Model (BSM) topics DUNE will probe, this paper presents a selection of studies quantifying DUNE’s sensitivities to sterile neutrino mixing, heavy neutral leptons, non-standard interactions, CPT symmetry violation, Lorentz invariance violation, and other new physics topics that complement those at high-energy colliders and significantly extend the present reach.
