Low-Energy Frontier of the High Energy Particle Physics

Clock icon
12:00 – 18:00 18 Sep 2013

The Cockcroft Institute, Daresbury Laboratory, Daresbury Science & Innovation Campus, Daresbury, Warrington, WA4 4AD

The meeting provides an overview of already existing experiments and theoretical work going on in the UK on the low-energy frontier. Additional emphasis is to introduce research that is not currently operating in the low-energy region, but can either bring new perspectives to it, or support already existing activities.

An IOP HEPP half-day meeting on new particle searches at the low-energy frontier.

Extensions of the Standard Model (SM) predict the existence of particles which have only weak interactions with the SM particles.  Some of these particles such as axions, axion like particles (ALPs) and hidden gauge bosons (Hidden Sector Photons, HSP) may have masses in the sub-eV region.  These Weakly Interacting sub-eV Particles (WISPs) can be searched for both directly and indirectly in small-scale experiments utilizing existing technologies.
