Upcoming Hidden Photons Searches with ALPS-II and FUNK
One of the simplest Standard Model extensions consists in a `Hidden Photon', coupled kinetically to the photon of the Standard Model. Such a particle could also constitute the Dark Matter. We highlight the most important theoretical and phenomenological aspects of ultra-light Hidden Photons and report on two upcoming experimental searches for such particles at DESY Hamburg (ALPS-II) and the KIT in Karlsruhe (FUNK).
