Title: Phenomenology of mixed modulus-anomaly mediation in fluxed string compactifications and brane models

Abstract

We examine low energy sparticle mass-spectrum and electroweak symmetry breaking in the mixed modulus-anomaly mediation which is naturally realized in KKLT flux compactification. We find that the anomaly-mediation effectively lowers messenger scale in the moduli-mediation and leads to 'squeezed' mass-spectrum distinct from any known mediation mechanisms. The lightest neutralino typically becomes a mixed state of bino and higgsino or pure higgsino, which has a considerable impact on the cold dark matter physics.

  • We discuss the phenomenology of a toy intersecting brane model where supersymmetry is dynamically broken in an open-string hidden sector and gauge-mediated to the visible sector. Scalar masses {approx}TeV are easily realizable, and R-symmetry is broken. These ideas are easily generalizable to other intersecting brane models.
  • We present some phenomenology of a new class of intersecting D-brane models. Soft SUSY breaking terms for these models are calculated in the complex structure (u)-moduli dominant SUSY breaking approach (in type IIA). In this case, the dependence of the soft terms on the Yukawas and Wilson lines drops out. These soft terms have a different pattern compared to the usual heterotic string models. Phenomenological implications for dark matter are discussed.

  • The authors discuss symmetry breaking and phenomenological aspects of rank 6 effective models in 4 dimensions, suggested by Calabi-Yau compactification of the heterotic E/sub 8/ x E/sub 8/ superstring, which have gauge group SU(3)/sub C/ x SU(2)/sub L/ x SU(2) x U(1)'. The simplest and most natural form of electroweak symmetry breaking for the softly broken effective SUSY theory is considered, and only those additions and alterations to the 27/sup 3/ based superpotential necessary to eliminate phenomenological problems are made. There are two physically distinct additional SU(2) factors, SU(2)/sub N/ and SU(2)/sub R/. The former has all gauge bosons electricallymore » neutral, the latter both charged and neutral. The additional SU(2) symmetry implies that large Dirac neutrino masses must be eliminated by a see-saw mechanism requiring the introduction of an E/sub 6/ singlet per generation and an intermediate scale of symmetry breaking M/sub I/(/ge/10/sup 10/ GeV). The intermediate scale symmetry breaking together with the couplings involving E/sub 6/ singlets needed for the see-saw mechanism unambiguously determines the form of the superpotential describing physics at low scales /approx/ 1 TeV. All additional heavy charge -1/3 quarks and additional Higgs doublets have masses /approx/ 1 TeV. An additional U(1)/sub E/ remains unbroken down to the 1 TeV scale. The resulting effective theories have no U(1)/sub E/ mediated FCNC due to mixing of heavy and light charge -1/3 quarks. Some couplings must be eliminated in order to prevent rapid nucleon decay.« less
