We review theoretical and phenomenological motivations for hidden photons (aka dark photons, etc.) and other very light and very weakly coupled new particles. New experiments operating at low energies but offering high sensitivities provide interesting opportunities for discoveries. Additional motivations comes from possible connections to dark matter, which also opens avenues for extremely sensitive tests.
