Coherent elastic neutrino nucleus scattering as a probe of a Z ' through kinetic and mass mixing effects uri icon


  • 2018 authors. Published by the American Physical Society. We examine the current constraints and future sensitivity of coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering (CENS) experiments to mixing scenarios involving a Z which interacts via portals with the standard model. We contrast the results against those from fixed target, atomic parity violation, and solar neutrino experiments. We demonstrate a significant dependence of the experimental reach on the Z coupling nonuniversality and the complementarity of CENS to existing searches.
