The X17 boson anomaly: status and prospects

Enrico Nardi (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare)

15 Dicembre 2022 @ 14:30 - 16:00

Certain anomalies observed in the angular correlation spectra of electron/positron pairs produced in nuclear transitions of 8Be, 4He and 12C can be interpreted as the emission of a bosonic particle with a mass of 17 MeV, that promptly decays into e+e−. I review the current status of these anomalies, and some theoretical interpretation for the hypothetical new particle. I will also describe the experimental prospects for validating or disproving the X17 hypothesis, and I will stress the importance of verifying the nuclear physics experimental hint by means of a particle physics experiment.
