- Neutrino Masses: First Signal From SUSY!
- Time: 3:30 pm
- Place: 5280 Chamberlin
- Speaker: Seyda Ipek, Fermilab
- Abstract: We know neutrinos have mass, but we don't know how they get their masses. Many models augment the Standard Model with right-handed neutrinos, either Dirac or Majorana, to generate the neutrino masses. I will show that in R-symmetric supersymmetric models, the bino and its Dirac partner the singlino can play the role of right-handed neutrinos. In this mechanism the neutrino masses are generated in a very simple fashion. I will also discuss low and high energy constraints/signatures in this framework.
