Stable SUSY breaking model with O(10) eV gravitino from combined Dterm gauge mediation and U(1)' mediation
We show a calculable example of stable supersymmetry (SUSY) breaking modelswith O(10) eV gravitino mass based on the combination of Dterm gauge mediationand U(1)' mediation. A potential problem of the negative mass squared for theSUSY standard model (SSM) sfermions in the Dterm gauge mediation is solvedby the contribution from the U(1)' mediation. On the other hand, the splittingbetween the SSM gauginos and sfermions in the U(1)' mediation iscircumvented bythe contributions from the Dterm gauge mediation. Since the U(1)' mediation doesnot introduce any new SUSY vacua, we achieve a completely stable model underthermal effects. Our model, therefore, has no cosmological difficulty. 
Distinguishing anomaly mediation from gauge mediation with a Wino nexttolightest supersymmetric particle
A striking consequence of supersymmetry breaking communicated purely via the superconformal anomaly is that the gaugino masses are proportional to the gauge {beta} functions. This result, however, is not unique to anomaly mediation. We present examples of ''generalized'' gaugemediated models with messengers in standard model representations that give nearly identical predictions for the gaugino masses, but positive (mass){sup 2} for all sleptons. There are remarkable similarities between an anomalymediated model with a small additional universal mass added to all scalars and the gaugemediated models with a longlived Wino nexttolightest supersymmetric particle, leading to only a small set of observables thatmore » 
Semidirect gauge mediation in conformal windows of vectorlike gauge theories
Direct gauge mediation models using the IntriligatorSeibergShih metastable vacua suffer from the Landau pole problem of the standardmodel gauge couplings and the existence of Rsymmetry forbidding gaugino masses. These problems may be solved by using the recently proposed supersymmetry (SUSY)breaking models in a conformal window of the vectorlike SU(N{sub C}) gauge theory with gauge singlets. In this paper we propose a model of gauge mediation based on the SUSYbreaking model in the conformal window, and study the dynamics for SUSY breaking. In this model, there are massive vectorlike bifundamental fields charged under both SU(N{sub C}) and the standardmodel gauge group,more » 
Cosmology of supersymmetric models with lowenergy gauge mediation
We study the cosmology of supersymmetric models in which the supersymmetrybreaking effects are mediated by gauge interactions at about the 10{sup 5} GeV scale. We first point out that the gravitino is likely to overclose the Universe in this class of models. This requires an entropy production, which prefers a baryogenesis mechanism at a relatively low temperature. The AffleckDine mechanism for baryogenesis is one of the possibilities to generate enough baryon asymmetry, but the analysis is nontrivial since the shape of the potential for the flat direction differs substantially from the conventional hidden sector case. To see this, we firstmore »
