Title: The FASER experiment at LHC

In March 2019, the FASER experiment which will search for
new light, weakly-interacting particles in forward region
of the interaction point of the LHC was approved by CERN.
By exploiting a unique location underground in the CERN
tunnel system, FASER will provide world-leading sensitivity
ina relatively small, quick, and inexpensive experiment.
The FASERdetector is currently under construction to be
installed into the tunnel during 2020 in LHC Long Shutdown 2.
This seminar will describe the physics motivations,
detector design, expected performance of FASER,
and current status, as well as the physics prospects.
