Title: Verifiable radiative seesaw mechanism of neutrino mass and dark matter

Abstract

Neutrino oscillations have established that neutrinos {nu}{sub i} have very small masses. Theoretically, they are believed to arise through the famous seesaw mechanism from their very heavy and unobservable Dirac mass partners N{sub i}. It is proposed here in a new minimal extension of the standard model with a second scalar doublet ({eta}{sup +}, {eta}{sup 0}) that the seesaw mechanism is actually radiative, and that N{sub i} and ({eta}{sup +}, {eta}{sup 0}) are experimentally observable at the forthcoming Large Hadron Collider, with the bonus that the lightest of them is also an excellent candidate for the dark matter of the Universe.
