Lepton Jets and Their Signature Space

by Joshua Ruderman (Berkeley)

Sunrise (Fermilab)



I will discuss the exotic collider signature of lepton jets, which are bunches of collimated leptons that can arise if there exists a new hidden sector of particles at the GeV scale. I will review the theoretical motivations for light hidden sectors and for kinetic mixing between the photon and hidden sector photons. Then, I will emphasize the broad signature space that lepton jets can cover, including composition, lepton multiplicities, jet shape, and hidden particle lifetimes.
