Limits for anomalous magnetic and electric dipole moments of tau leptons from heavy-ion UPCs
We discuss sensitivity of the $\gamma\gamma \to \tau^+\tau^-$ process in ultraperipheral Pb+Pb collisions at LHC energies on the anomalous magnetic moment of $\tau$ lepton ($a_\tau$). We derive the corresponding cross sections considering semi-leptonic decays of both leptons in the fiducial volume of ATLAS and CMS detectors. The expected limits on $a_\tau$ with the existing Pb+Pb dataset are found to be better by a factor of two comparing to current best experimental limits and can be further improved by another factor of two at High Luminosity LHC. In addition, our results for tau lepton electric dipole moment, $d_\tau$, can be competitive with the current best limits obtained by the Belle experiment.
