Title: The minimal fermionic model of electroweak baryogenesis

Abstract

We present the minimal model of electroweak baryogenesis induced by fermions. The model consists of an extension of the Standard Model with one electroweak singlet fermion and one pair of vector like doublet fermions with renormalizable couplings to the Higgs. A strong first order phase transition is radiatively induced by the singlet-doublet fermions, while the origin of the baryon asymmetry is due to asymmetric reflection of the same set of fermions on the expanding electroweak bubble wall. The singlet-doublet fermions are stabilized at the electroweak scale by chiral symmetries and the Higgs potential is stabilized by threshold corrections coming from a multi-TeV ultraviolet completion which does not play any significant role in the phase transition. We work in terms of background symmetry invariants and perform an analytic semiclassical calculation of the baryon asymmetry, showing that the model may effectively generate the observed baryon asymmetry for percent level values of the unique invariant CP violating phase of the singlet-doublet sector. We include a detailed study of electron electric dipole moment and electroweak precision limits, and for one typical benchmark scenario, we also recast existing collider constraints, showing that the model is consistent with all current experimental data. We point out thatmore » fermion induced electroweak baryogenesis has irreducible phenomenology at the 13 TeV LHC since the new fermions must be at the electroweak scale, have electroweak quantum numbers and couple strongly to the Higgs. The most promising searches involve topologies with multiple leptons and missing energy in the final state.« less
