I will introduce new hypothetical particles that are assumed to be very weakly coupled with the Standard Model. In particular I will focus on axion (like) particles and hidden photons (also known as dark photons or paraphotons).
After the introduction I will summarize hints and constraints on these particles, as well as new detection techniques we have been working on.
