The electron-positron stage of the Future Circular Collider, FCC-ee, is a frontier factory for Higgs, top, electroweak, and flavour physics. It is designed to operate in a 100 km circular tunnel built at CERN, and will serve as the first step towards ≥100 TeV proton-proton collisions. In addition to an essential and unique Higgs program, it offers powerful opportunities to discover direct or indirect evidence of physics beyond the Standard Model. Direct searches for long-lived particles at FCC… 

Search for the dipole portal of heavy neutral leptons at future colliders

In this paper, we study the potential of future colliders to explore the parameter space of heavy neutral leptons (HNLs) through the dipole portal. We consider hadron colliders such as the LHC in the

Simulating lepton number violation induced by heavy neutrino-antineutrino oscillations at colliders

We study pseudo-Dirac pairs of two almost mass degenerate sterile Majorana neutrinos which generate light neutrino masses via a low-scale seesaw mechanism. These pseudo-Dirac heavy neutral leptons

The Future Circular Collider: a Summary for the US 2021 Snowmass Process

In this white paper for the 2021 Snowmass process, we give a description of the proposed Future Circular Collider (FCC) project and its physics program. The paper summarizes and updates the

Heavy Neutral Leptons at Muon Colliders

The future high-energy muon colliders, featuring both high energy and low background, could play a critical role in our searches for new physics. The smallness of neutrino mass is a puzzle of

Exploring the potential of FCC-hh to search for particles from B mesons

The Future Circular hadron Collider (FCC-hh) is a proposed successor of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). FCC-hh would push both the energy and intensity frontiers of searches for new physics

Probing the Nature of Heavy Neutral Leptons in Direct Searches and Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay

: Heavy Neutral Leptons (HNLs) are a popular extension of the Standard Model to explain the lightness of neutrino masses and the matter-antimatter asymmetry through leptogenesis. Future direct

We discuss the potential to observe lepton number violation (LNV) in displaced vertex searches for heavy neutral leptons (HNLs) at future lepton colliders. Even though a direct detection of LNV is

A two-component vector WIMP — fermion FIMP dark matter model with an extended seesaw mechanism

We consider an extension of the Standard Model that explains the neutrino masses and has a rich dark matter phenomenology. The model has two dark matter candidates, a vector WIMP and a fermion FIMP,

Report of the Snowmass 2021 e$^+$e$^-$-Collider Forum

A summary of the Snowmass 2021 e$^+$e$^-$-Collider Forum discussions, white papers submitted to the Snowmass 2021 community study, submissions of the Energy Frontier (EF) subgroups and the



Monojet search for heavy neutrinos at future Z-factories

The existence of heavy neutrinos is the most prominent feature of type-I seesaw-like mechanisms, which naturally explain tiny masses of observed neutrinos. Various experiments have been conducted to

Probing leptogenesis at future colliders

A bstractWe investigate the question whether leptogenesis, as a mechanism for explaining the baryon asymmetry of the universe, can be tested at future colliders. Focusing on the minimal scenario of

Collider constraints on light pseudoscalars

We investigate the bounds on light pseudoscalars that arise from a variety of collider searches. Special attention is thereby devoted to the mass regions [3, 5] GeV and [9, 11] GeV, in which a

Naturalness in the dark at the LHC

We revisit the Twin Higgs scenario as a “dark” solution to the little hierarchy problem, identify the structure of a minimal model and its viable parameter space, and analyze its collider

Heavy Neutral Leptons at Beam Dump Experiments of Future Lepton Colliders

: A new beam dump experiment that utilizes the beam of future high energy electron-positron colliders could be an excellent avenue to search for dark sector particles due to its unprecedented high

The νMSM, dark matter and neutrino masses

An extension of the minimal standard model by three right-handed neutrinos with masses smaller than the electroweak scale (the νMSM) allows to explain simultaneously neutrino oscillations and dark

Exploring the potential of FCC-hh to search for particles from $B$ mesons

The Future Circular hadron Collider (FCC-hh) is a proposed successor of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). FCC-hh would push both the energy and intensity frontiers of searches for new physics

The Present and Future Status of Heavy Neutral Leptons

The existence of nonzero neutrino masses points to the likely existence of multiple Standard Model neutral fermions. When such states are heavy enough that they cannot be produced in oscillations,

Near or Far Detectors? Optimizing Long-Lived Particle Searches at Electron-Positron Colliders

We explore the discovery potential for long-lived particles at the 250-GeV ILC. The goal is to investigate possible gains of a dedicated far detector over the main detector ILD. For concreteness, we

Search for long-lived axions with far detectors at future lepton colliders

In our previous work [Phys. Rev. D 101 (2020) 075046], we have proposed to install FAr Detectors at the Electron Positron Collider (FADEPC) to enhance the discovery potential of long-lived particles
