Anomalous U(1) Gauge Bosons and String Physics at the Forward Physics Facility

Abstract : We show that experiments at the Forward Physics Facility, planned to operate near the ATLAS interaction point during the LHC high-luminosity era, will be able to probe predictions of Little String Theory by searching for anomalous U(1) gauge bosons living in the bulk. The interaction of the abelian broken gauge symmetry with the Standard Model is generated at the one-loop level through kinetic mixing with the photon. Gauge invariant generation of mass for the U(1) gauge boson proceeds via the Higgs mechanism in spontaneous symmetry breaking, or else through anomaly-cancellation appealing to Stueckelberg-mass terms. We demonstrate that FASER2 will be able to probe string scales over roughly two orders of magnitude: 10^5 < M_s/TeV < 10^7.
