Speaker: David Morrissey (TRIUMF)
Subject: Light Hidden Sectors and Low-Energy Searches

New physics can be light if it is hidden, coupling very weakly to the Standard Model. In this talk I will describe searches for new light (sub-GeV) particles using lower-energy precision experiments. I will also discuss realizations of such sectors involving supersymmetry or strong interactions where the characteristic energy scale of the new hidden states is obtained naturally.

The weekly calendar is also available via subscription to the physics-announce mailing list, and by RSS feed.
