Model Description

The model is based on MSSM, but adding a dark sector. The dark sector, U(1)D, is broken, giving rise to light dark photons (γD) that weakly couple to the SM particles via a small kinetic mixing with photons. The lightest neutralino n1 in MSSM is no longer stable and can decay via processes such as n1 → nD + γD, where nD is a light dark neutralino (fermion). In this model, the γD is mediated by very weak interactions with the SM, and can decay to muon pairs promptly or non-promptly.
