Exploring long-range force of Lµ − Lτ Symmetry using Atmospheric Neutrino Experiment
Flavor-dependent long-range leptonic force mediated by an ultralight and neutral gauge boson $Z'$ associated with $L_\mu -L_\tau$ symmetry constitutes a minimal extension of the Standard Model. We study the physical consequences of such long-range force in the oscillation of terrestrial neutrinos, particularly in $\nu_\mu$ survival channel. We show that the proposed atmospheric neutrino detector ICAL will be able to put tight constraints on such long-range force due to its capabilities of detecting neutrinos and antineutrinos separately with the wide ranges of energies and baselines. We also study the possible impact of this long-range force in the measurement of atmospheric neutrino oscillation parameters and mass ordering at the ICAL.
