About this Research Topic
The interplay between these two BSM physics scenarios is the underlying theme of this topic.
This research topic aims to provide a platform to discuss novel new physics scenarios and connections between DM physics and neutrino physics, the two most sought-after mysteries in particle physics. There are many exciting ongoing and upcoming experimental facilities targeting DM and neutrino. Hence, exploring such connections enables a complementary probe of both scenarios in these experiments. Besides enhancing the reach and applicability of such experiments, it might also reveal new theoretical and experimental avenues for future explorations such as ways to overcome/circumvent cosmic neutrino barriers in DM direct detection experiments.
The scope of this topic is to assemble relevant publications by soliciting submissions on neutrino and dark matter physics that may include but are not limited to the following topics:
1. Construction of phenomenological models simultaneously exploring DM and neutrino physics.
2. Exploiting the complementarity between DM and neutrino physics to examine DM physics at neutrino experiments and vice versa.
3. Developing experimental methods, at least as a proof-of-principle, to overcome/circumvent the issue of neutrino floor.
Keywords: Exact neutrino mass measurements, neutrino decay, electromagnetic properties of neutrinos, cosmic neutrino background, dark matter, dark matter neutrino interplay
