Title: Hidden-sector Spectroscopy with Gravitational Waves from Binary Neutron Stars

Abstract

Neutron star (NS) binaries can be ideal laboratories to probe hidden sectors with a long-range force. Specifically, it is possible for gravitational wave (GW) detectors such as LIGO and Virgo to resolve the correction of waveforms from ultralight dark gauge bosons coupled to NSs. Our work demonstrates that the interaction of the hidden sector affects both the GW frequency and amplitude in a way that cannot be fitted by pure gravity.
