Description

The SHiP Collaboration has proposed a general purpose experimental facility
at the CERN SPS accelerator to search for feebly interacting GeV-scale particles.
SHiP complements the world-wide program of New Physics searches by covering a large
region of parameter space which cannot be addressed by other experiments.
The SHiP detector is sensitive both to decay and scattering signatures of models
with heavy neutral leptons, dark photons, dark scalars, light dark matter and
other super-weakly interacting particles. In addition, SHiP can perform
unprecedented measurements with tau neutrinos and neutrino-induced charm production.
Following the continued development since the Technical Proposal submitted in 2015,
this paper is a comprehensive overview of the re-optimized SHiP spectrometers and
the improved physics performance.
