Description

The FASER experiment is a new small and inexpensive experiment that is being placed 480 meters downstream of the ATLAS experiment at the CERN LHC. The experiment will shed light on currently unexplored phenomena, having the potential to make a revolutionary discovery. FASER is designed to capture decays of exotic particles, produced in the very forward region, out of the ATLAS detector acceptance. This talk will present the physics prospects, the detector design, and the construction progress of FASER. The experiment has been successfully installed and will take data during the LHC Run-3.
