The discovery of the Higgs boson has fully confirmed the Standard Model of particles and fields. Nevertheless, there are still fundamental phenomena, like the existence of dark matter and the baryon asymmetry of the Universe, deserving an explanation that could come from the discovery of new particles. Searches for new physics with accelerators are performed at the LHC, looking for high massive particles coupled to matter with ordinary strength. A new experiment at CERN meant to search for very… 

Probing leptophilic dark sectors at electron beam-dump facilities

Medium-energy electron beam-dump experiments provide an intense sources of secondary muons. These particles can be used to search for muon-coupling light dark scalars that may explain the $(g-2)_\mu$

A neutrinophilic 2HDM as a UV completion for the inverse seesaw mechanism

A bstractIn Neutrinophilic Two Higgs Doublet Models, Dirac neutrino masses are obtained by forbidding a Majorana mass term for the right-handed neutrinos via a symmetry. We study a variation of such

Axial and pseudoscalar form factors from charged current quasielastic neutrino-nucleon scattering

We study the scattering of neutrinos on polarized and unpolarized free nucleons, and also the polarization of recoil particles in these scatters. In contrast to electromagnetic processes, the

Polarization of τ in quasielastic (anti)neutrino scattering: The role of spectral functions

We present a study of the $\tau$ polarization in charged-current quasielastic (anti)neutrino-nucleus scattering. The spectral function formalism is used to compute the differential cross section and

Sensitivity of the SHiP experiment to dark photons decaying to a pair of charged particles

<jats:p>Dark photons are hypothetical massive vector particles that could mix with ordinary photons. The simplest theoretical model is fully characterised by only two parameters: the mass of the dark

Segmentation of EM showers for neutrino experiments with deep graph neural networks

A first-ever algorithm for the reconstruction of multiple showers from the data collected with electromagnetic (EM) sampling calorimeters, and a new layer type (EmulsionConv) that takes into account geometrical properties of shower development in ECC brick.



A facility to search for hidden particles at the CERN SPS: the SHiP physics case

It is demonstrated that the SHiP experiment has a unique potential to discover new physics and can directly probe a number of solutions of beyond the standard model puzzles, such as neutrino masses, baryon asymmetry of the Universe, dark matter, and inflation.

Measurement of charm production in neutrino charged-current interactions

The nuclear emulsion target of the CHORUS detector was exposed to the wide-band neutrino beam of the CERN SPS of 27 GeV average neutrino energy from 1994 to 1997. In total, about 100 000

Sterile neutrinos as the origin of dark and baryonic matter.

We demonstrate for the first time that three sterile neutrinos alone can simultaneously explain neutrino oscillations, the observed dark matter, and the baryon asymmetry of the Universe without new

New results on νμ → ντ appearance with the OPERA experiment in the CNGS beam

A bstractThe OPERA neutrino experiment is designed to perform the first observation of neutrino oscillations in direct appearance mode in the νμ → ντ channel, via the detection of the τ-leptons

The Phenomenology of Right Handed Neutrinos

Neutrinos are the only particles in the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics that have only been observed with left handed chirality to date. If right handed (RH) neutrinos exist, they could be

Discovery of τ Neutrino Appearance in the CNGS Neutrino Beam with the OPERA Experiment.

A fifth ν_{τ} candidate event is found in an enlarged data sample, and the candidate events detected so far allow us to assess the discovery of ν⩽_{μ}→ν_{ τ} oscillations in appearance mode with a significance larger than 5σ.
