Description
Kaon decays allow to probe “hidden sectors” by searching for new particles that can be feebly coupled to the Standard Model sectors via neutrino, vector and scalar portals. Recent results and prospects of such searches at NA62 are presented. In particular, search for the heavy neutral lepton (N) production in K→mu N decay (neutrino portal) , dark photon (A’) search in K→pi pi0, pi0→A’ gamma (vector portal) and inflaton (S) search in K→pi S, S→mu+ mu- (scalar portal) are discussed.
