Cyclotron radiation detection to search for new physics

Prof. Alejandro Garcia
Department of Physics
University of Washington

Chirality plays a fundamental role in the Standard Model, where the charged weak current is modeled as purely left handed. Models for new physics naturally break this symmetry, so sensitive searches for chirality-flipping interactions could be a powerful tool for discovery.

We will discuss a proposal for a sensitive search for chirality-flipping interactions by measuring the beta spectrum of 6He and other nuclei. We plan to measure the energies via cyclotron radiation emission spectroscopy (CRES) recently demonstrated by the Project 8 collaboration, extending its use to the broader range of electron energies of the 6He and other nuclear beta decays.

We will also discuss other possible applications, including experiments that could be carried out at radioactive beam facilities.
