Combining dark matter detectors and electron-capture sources to hunt for new physics in the neutrino sector
In this letter we point out the possibility to study new physics in the neutrino sector using dark matter detectors based on liquid xenon. These are characterized by very good spatial resolution and extremely low thresholds ...
Searching for sterile neutrinos at the ESSνSB
The ESS nu SB project is a proposed neutrino oscillation experiment based on the European Spallation Source with the search for leptonic CP violation as its main aim. In this letter we show that a near detector at around ...
Higgs inflation, vacuum stability, and leptogenesis
We consider the introduction of a complex scalar field carrying a global lepton number charge to the Standard Model and the Higgs inflation framework. The conditions are investigated under which this model can simultaneously ...
Searches for decays of new particles in the DUNE Multi-Purpose near Detector
One proposed component of the upcoming Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) near detector complex is a multi-purpose, magnetized, gaseous argon time projection chamber: the Multi-Purpose Detector (MPD). We explore ...
Constraining non-standard interactions of the neutrino with Borexino
We use the Borexino 153.6 ton·year data to place constraints on non-standard neutrino-electron interactions, taking into account the uncertainties in the 7Be solar neutrino flux and the mixing angle θ 23, and backgrounds ...
Analytical approximation of the neutrino oscillation matter effects at large theta (13)
B-decay anomalies and scalar leptoquarks in unified Pati-Salam models from noncommutative geometry
Motivated by possible scalar-leptoquark explanations of the recently reported B-decay anomalies, we investigate whether the required leptoquarks can be accommodated within models based on noncommutative geometry (NCG). The ...
Probing non-standard interactions at Daya Bay
In this article we consider the presence of neutrino non-standard interactions (NSI) in the production and detection processes of reactor antineutrinos at the Daya Bay experiment. We report for the first time, the new ...
DUNE sensitivities to the mixing between sterile and tau neutrinos
Light sterile neutrinos can be probed in a number of ways, including electroweak decays, cosmology and neutrino oscillation experiments. At long-baseline experiments, the neutral-current data is directly sensitive to the ...
