The investigation on the dark sector at the PADME experiment.
August 02, 2019
The PADME experiment, by using the positron beam of the INFN Frascati laboratory, looks for signals of a dark photon, $A^\prime$. By knowing the beam energy, and measuring precisely the four-momentum of the ordinary recoil photon, a signal is searched in the missing mass of the process $e^+ e^- \rightarrow A^\prime \gamma$. The precise determination of this quantity, and the capability to reject background events, are the key points for the success of the experiment. In this paper, a general description of the physics case and of the detector are given.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
