Description

The goal of the FASER experiment is to search for new light, weakly-interacting particles at CERNs Large Hadron Collider. By exploiting a unique location underground in the CERN tunnel system, FASER will provide world-leading sensitivity in a relatively small, quick, and inexpensive experiment. The FASER detector is currently under construction to be installed into the tunnel during 2020 in LHC Long Shutdown 2. This seminar will describe the physics motivations, detector design, and expected performance of FASER as well as the physics prospects.
