Turning noise into data: a discovery strategy for new weakly-interacting physics

Project description

Taking a second look at noise, searching for hidden clues to the "hidden sector"

For decades, high-energy particle physics facilities have led the hunt for "new physics," or novel laws, particles and behaviours beyond those of the Standard Model, which remains our incomplete yet best "model of everything" so far. Most efforts to extend this model predict the existence of a "hidden sector" of particles, many of which may be very light, having very weak interactions with our visible Standard Model matter. The EU-funded DISCOVERHEP project is exploring the low-energy regime in the "noise" of a massive collection of previously recorded data on the trail of new physics. The novel search strategies could power a new era of discoveries beyond the Standard Model.
