Title: Gauged Supergravities and Spontaneous Supersymmetry Breaking from the Double Copy Construction

Abstract

Supergravities with gauged R symmetry and Minkowski vacua allow for spontaneous supersymmetry breaking and, as such, provide a framework for building supergravity models of phenomenological relevance. In this Letter, we initiate the study of double copy constructions for these supergravities. We argue that, on general grounds, we expect their scattering amplitudes to be described by a double copy of the type (spontaneously broken gauge theory)Ⓧ (gauge theory with broken supersymmetry). We present a simple realization in which the resulting supergravity has U(1) R gauge symmetry, spontaneously broken $$\mathcal{N}$$ = 2 supersymmetry, and massive gravitini. This is the first instance of a double copy construction of a gauged supergravity and of a theory with spontaneously broken supersymmetry. Thus, the construction extends in a straightforward manner to a large family of gauged Yang-Mills-Einstein supergravity theories with or without spontaneous gauge-symmetry breaking.
