Title: Zee neutrino mass model in a SUSY framework

Abstract

We study the Zee model of neutrino mass in the framework of R-parity-violating supersymmetry. Within the matter content of the minimal supersymmetric standard model, any one of the three right-handed sleptons could be a suitable candidate for the charged-singlet scalar of the Zee model, and one of the Higgs doublets provides the extra necessary vacuum expectation value. A combination of one bilinear and two trilinear R-parity-violating couplings then completes the model. In this framework, we also discuss other various contributions to neutrino masses and derive the conditions for the dominance of the contribution from the Zee model, and hence maintain the successfully Zee mass texture. However, this model within the minimal supersymmetric standard model is shown to be only marginally feasible. More general versions of supersymmetrization of the Zee model are also discussed. A particularly interesting example that has extra Higgs doublets while the slepton, especially the selectron, keeps the role of the Zee scalar is illustrated. (c) 2000 The American Physical Society.
