Title: Coherent elastic neutrino nucleus scattering as a probe of a Z ' through kinetic and mass mixing effects

Abstract

We examine the current constraints and future sensitivity of coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering (CEνNS) experiments to mixing scenarios involving a Z' which interacts via portals with the standard model. We contrast the results against those from fixed target, atomic parity violation, and solar neutrino experiments. We demonstrate a significant dependence of the experimental reach on the Z' coupling nonuniversality and the complementarity of CEνNS to existing searches.
