F.Franco-Sollova,W.Menges,K.Desch - Transverse Beam Polarisation for WW Production

- If both beams can be polarised longitudinally, also transverse polarisation can become useful (insert spin rotators before IP)
- One possible application might be the study of anomalous Triple Gauge Couplings in e+e-gW+W-
- Transverse polarisation leads to an azimuthal asymmetry of the cross section:
- Especially interesting for CP-violating anomalous couplings (they introduce a phase shift in the phi asymmetry = new observable not present for LPOL)

Both, transverse polarisation and anomalous TGC’s (including

CP violating couplings) are built into the WHIZARD generator.

The Observable:

How big is the asymmetry?

Depends strongly on cosθ cut

(only s-channel exhibits cos2Φ modulation)

F.Franco-Sollova,W.Menges,K.Desch - Transverse Beam Polarisation for WW Production

- Tools to perform an experimental study of WW production with transversely polarized beams are now available (built into
- WHIZARD) seems to work
- Azimuthal asymmetry is significant in the SM
- Can be much larger if anomalous TGC’s are present
- Check effect of CPV couplings -> phase shift in phi-distribution?
- Become quantitative (estimate sensitivity to TGC’s)
- If there is increased sensitivity (compared to LPOL), study detector effects + possible systematics
