The DUNE Near Detector Complex as a Beam Dump Facility

28 Jul 2021, 11:10


Parallel session talk Neutrino Physics T04: Neutrino Physics


Kevin Kelly (Fermilab)


Two of the greatest mysteries that particle physics faces today are the fact that neutrinos have mass and the existence of dark matter. Upcoming experiments are on the horizon attempting to unveil more about both of these, but there is the possibility that we can learn about both in one environment. The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, a next-generation experiment planned for the US in the late 2020s and beyond, will have a suite of near detectors designed to better understand neutrino fluxes and interactions, however, it has capabilities for discovering beyond-the-Standard-Model physics as well. In this talk, I will demonstrate how this complex can be seen as a sort-of “Beam Dump” facility, enabling searches for new particles, such as heavy neutrinos, dark Higgs bosons, and axion-like particles.
