A direct detection view of new neutrino physics

Direct dark matter detection experiments will soon be able to observe solar neutrinos. Although this might limit their capability to search for dark matter particles, it offers a unique opportunity to probe new physics in the neutrino sector. In this talk I will show that, due to their sensitivity to neutrino-electron and neutrino-nucleus scattering, direct detection experiments will be particularly useful to explore non-standard neutrino interactions, as well as some scenarios with sterile neutrinos. This offers a complementary view to that of spallation sources and neutrino oscillation experiments.
