In my talk I will explore a way to combine nonlinear optics
with dark sector searches, and talk about a “toy experiment” we have
running at SiDet. Improvements on this experimental technique might
give new insights on dark sector. The technique is inspired in a
nonlinear optics process known as “spontaneous parametric down
conversion” in which a photon decays into two photons. Analogous
processes might be a good test for dark sector models.
