 Search for pseudoscalar bosons decaying into $e^+e^-$ pairs / NA64 Collaboration We report the results of a search for a light pseudoscalar particle $a$ that couples to electrons and decays to $e^+e^-$ performed using the high-energy CERN SPS H4 electron beam.

 Search for pseudoscalar bosons decaying into e+e- pairs / Banerjee, D ; Bernhard, J ; Burtsev, V ; Chumakov, A ; Cooke, D ; Crivelli, P ; Depero, E ; Dermenev, A ; Donskov, S ; Dusaev, R et al. /NA64 We report the results of a search for a light pseudoscalar particle $a$ that couples to electrons and decays to $e^+e^-$ performed using the high-energy CERN SPS H4 electron beam. If such pseudoscalar with a mass $\simeq 17$ MeV exists, it could explain the ATOMKI anomaly. [...] CERN-EP-2021-069.- Geneva : CERN, 2021 - 6. Draft (restricted): PDF; Fulltext: PDF;

 Search for Dark Sector Physics in Missing Energy Events in the NA64 Experiment / Kirsanov, Mikhail (Moscow, INR) A search is performed for a new sub-GeV vector boson (A′) mediated production of Dark Matter (χ) in the fixed-target experiment, NA64, at the CERN SPS. The A′, called dark photon, could be generated in the reaction e−Z → e−ZA′ of 100 GeV electrons dumped against an active target which is followed by the prompt invisible decay A′→χχ¯.

 The Search for Light Dark Matter at NA64 Experiment / Krasnikov, N V (Moscow, INR ; Dubna, JINR) This minireview aim is to outline the main experimental results related to the search for LDM (light dark matter) at NA64 experiment at CERN. We discuss current results and the NA64 perspectives. [...] 2020 - 6 p. - Published in : Phys. Part.

 Constraints on New Physics in the Electron g-2 from a Search for Invisible Decays of a Scalar, Pseudoscalar, Vector, and Axial Vector / NA64 Collaboration We performed a search for a new generic $X$ boson, which could be a scalar ($S$), pseudoscalar ($P$), vector ($V$) or an axial vector ($A$) particle produced in the 100 GeV electron scattering off nuclei, $e^- Z \to e^- Z X$, followed by its invisible decay in the NA64 experiment at CERN. No evidence for such process was found in the full NA64 data set of $2.84\times 10^{11}$ electrons on target. [...] arXiv:2102.01885; CERN-EP-2021-017.- 2021-05-26 - 6 p. - Published in : Phys. Rev.

 Hunting down the X17 boson at the CERN SPS / NA64 Collaboration Recently, the ATOMKI experiment has reported new evidence for the excess of $e^+ e^-$ events with a mass $\sim$17 MeV in the nuclear transitions of $^4$He, that they previously observed in measurements with $^8$Be. These observations could be explained by the existence of a new vector $X17$ boson. [...] arXiv:2009.02756.- 2020-12-15 - 17 p. - Published in : Eur. Phys. J.

 Photoproduction of axionlike particles in the NA64 experiment / Dusaev, R.R. (Tomsk State U.) ; Kirpichnikov, D.V. (Moscow, INR) ; Kirsanov, M.M. (Moscow, INR) Axion-like particles $a$ (ALPs) that couple to the Standard Model (SM) gauge fields could be observed in the high-energy photon scattering $\gamma N\to N a$ off nuclei followed by the $a\to \gamma\gamma$ decay. In the present paper we describe the calculation of the ALP production cross-section and the properties of this production. [...] arXiv:2004.04469.- 2020-09-29 - 8 p. - Published in : Phys. Rev.

 Status and Plans for the NA64 Experiment / Bernhard, J (CERN) /NA64 Collaboration ; Physics Beyond Collider Conventional Beams working group Collaboration The NA64 experiment at the CERN North Area searches for dark matter production via both visible and invisible decays of sub-GeV vector mediators, such as the dark photon $A$´. In a first data taking period from 2016-2018, $A$' generation from the reaction e Z $\rightarrow$ e Z $A$' and subsequent decays $A$´ $\rightarrow x\overline{x}$ and $A$´ $\rightarrow$ e$^+$e$^-$ was studied with the help of an active dump set-up using 100 GeV/$c$ and 150 GeV/$c$ electrons.

 Search for Axionlike and Scalar Particles with the NA64 Experiment / NA64 Collaboration We carried out a model-independent search for light scalar (s) and pseudoscalar axionlike (a) particles that couple to two photons by using the high-energy CERN SPS H4 electron beam. The new particles, if they exist, could be produced through the Primakoff effect in interactions of hard bremsstrahlung photons generated by 100 GeV electrons in the NA64 active dump with virtual photons provided by the nuclei of the dump.

Nucl. Problems) ; Solin, A V (Minsk, Inst. Nucl. Problems) The aim of this work is to describe the characteristics and properties of the particle-tracking detectors created at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research by the glued straw tube technology for the NA64 experiment on the extracted electron beam of the CERN SPS. The physical task of the experiment is to search for phenomena of the dark sector and dark matter.. 2019 - 12 p. - Published in : Phys. Part. Nucl. Lett. 16 (2019) 847-858
