SHiP (Search for Hidden Particles)

Konstantinos Petridis (Bristol University)


The SHiP Experiment is a new general-purpose fixed target facility at the SPS at CERN. The aim of the experiment is to search for long lived weakly interacting particles predicted by a number of models which aim at explaining the origin of the baryon asymmetry in the Universe, the origin of neutrino masses and provide a dark matter candidate. This talk will summarise the physics motivation, the experimental facility and the sensitivity to new physics models.
