Lepton Photon 2009: Shining a light through a wall

While most of the talks here at Lepton Photon have focused on blowing up the Standard Model at high energies — i.e., firing up the LHC — Joerg Jaeckel of the University of Durham in the UK gave an interesting talk on how you can look for new physics at energies of just an electron-volt or so. The LHC might miss particles that only rarely interact with normal matter. And so Jaeckel extolled the virtues of exquisitely sensitive experiments that probe this alternative (and cheaper) ‘low-energy’ frontier.
