Abstract Future experiments dedicated to the detection of Coherent Elastic Neutrino-Nucleus Scattering may be powerful tools in probing light new physics. In this paper we study the sensitivity on light Z′ mediators of two proposed experiments: a directional low pressure Time Projection Chamber detector, νBDX-DRIFT, that will utilize neutrinos produced at the Long Baseline Neutrino Facility, and several possible experiments to be installed at the European Spallation Source. We compare the… 

Bounds on new physics with data of the Dresden-II reactor experiment and COHERENT

Abstract Coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering was first experimentally established five years ago by the COHERENT experiment using neutrinos from the spallation neutron source at Oak Ridge

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



The physics potential of a reactor neutrino experiment with Skipper-CCDs: searching for new physics with light mediators

Abstract We explore the sensitivity to new physics of the recently proposed vIOLETA experiment: a 10 kg Skipper Charged Coupled Device detector deployed 12 meters away from a commercial nuclear

Constraints on light vector mediators through coherent elastic neutrino nucleus scattering data from COHERENT

We present new constraints on three different models, the so-called universal, B − L and L μ − L τ models, involving a yet to be observed light vector Z ′ mediator, by exploiting the recent

Prospects for exploring New Physics in Coherent Elastic Neutrino-Nucleus Scattering

Coherent Elastic Neutrino-Nucleus Scattering (CEvNS) is a Standard Model process that, although predicted for decades, has only been detected recently by the COHERENT collaboration. Now that CEvNS

Dark matter and exotic neutrino interactions in direct detection searches

A bstractWe investigate the effect of new physics interacting with both Dark Matter (DM) and neutrinos at DM direct detection experiments. Working within a simplified model formalism, we consider

Determining the nuclear neutron distribution from Coherent Elastic neutrino-Nucleus Scattering: current results and future prospects

Coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering (CE$\nu$NS), a process recently measured for the first time at ORNL's Spallation Neutron Source, is directly sensitive to the weak form factor of the

The physics potential of a reactor neutrino experiment with Skipper CCDs: measuring the weak mixing angle

We analyze in detail the physics potential of an experiment like the one recently proposed by the vIOLETA collaboration: a kilogram-scale Skipper CCD detector deployed 12 meters away from a

Recent Probes of Standard and Non-standard Neutrino Physics With Nuclei

We review current standard and non-standard neutrino physics probes that are based on nuclear measurements. We pay special attention on the discussion of prospects to extract new physics at prominent

Coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering at the European Spallation Source

The European Spallation Source (ESS), presently well on its way to completion, will soon provide the most intense neutron beams for multi-disciplinary science. Fortuitously, it will also generate the

Search for light mediators in the low-energy data of the CONNIE reactor neutrino experiment

The CONNIE experiment is located at a distance of 30 m from the core of a commercial nuclear reactor, and has collected a 3.7 kg-day exposure using a CCD detector array sensitive to an ∼ 1 keV

European Spallation Source: a future for Coherent Neutrino Nucleus Scattering

The European Spallation Source (ESS), currently finishing its construction, will soon provide the most intense neutron beams for multi-disciplinary science. At the same time, it will also produce a
