  1. Abstract The search for a dark photon holds considerable interest in the physics community. Such a force carrier would begin to illuminate the dark sector. Many experiments have searched for such a particle, but so far it has proven elusive. In recent years the concept of a low mass dark photon has gained popularity in the physics community. Of particular recent interest is the 8 Be and 4 He anomaly, which could be explained by a new fifth force carrier with a mass of 17 MeV/ c 2 . The proposed Darklight experiment would search for this potential low mass force carrier at ARIEL in the 10-20 MeV/ c 2 e + e − invariant mass range. This proceeding will focus on the experimental design and physics case of the Darklight experiment.

  4. Abstract ATHENA has been designed as a general purpose detector capable of delivering the full scientific scope of the Electron-Ion Collider. Careful technology choices provide fine tracking and momentum resolution, high performance electromagnetic and hadronic calorimetry, hadron identification over a wide kinematic range, and near-complete hermeticity.This article describes the detector design and its expected performance in the most relevant physics channels. It includes an evaluation of detector technology choices, the technical challenges to realizing the detector and the R&D required to meet those challenges.
