Looking forward to New Physics and Neutrinos with FASER at LHC


FASER, the ForwArd Search ExpeRiment, is an experiment dedicated to searching for light, extremely weakly-interacting particles at the LHC. Such particles may be produced in the high-energy collisions at the LHC and then decay to visible particles in the detector, which is placed 480 m downstream of the ATLAS interaction point. FASER also includes a sub-detector, FASERnu, designed to detect high-energetic neutrinos produced in the LHC collisions with the 13.6 TeV of the center-of-mass energy and to study their properties. FASER has joined the LHC Run 3 from the beginning and has been taking data. This seminar will present the latest status of the FASER experiment, including commissioning, operation and early analysis, and also discuss a newly proposed future project to be implemented at CERN for the high luminosity LHC era, which is called the Forward Physics Facility (FPF).
