Hidden sectors: a window on the dark universe
Bertrand Echenard, Caltech,

Determining the nature of dark matter is currently the focus of intense theoretical and experimental investigations. Light hidden sectors, consisting of new particles interacting only feebly with the Standard Model, have recently received much attention in that context. Nature may contain numerous dark sectors, each with their own particles and forces, making up part or all of the dark matter. Despite decades of experimental measurements, the parameter space of these theories remains largely unexplored. In this talk, I'll review the phenomenology of hidden sectors and light dark matter, and discuss future experiments aimed at further probing these scenarios.
