Motivation

Motivation

  • 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)

Transverse polarisation1

Transverse Polarisation

Both, transverse polarisation and anomalous TGC’s (including

CP violating couplings) are built into the WHIZARD generator.

Transverse polarisation2

Transverse Polarisation

The Observable:

How big is the asymmetry?

Depends strongly on cosθ cut

(only s-channel exhibits cos2Φ modulation)

generator level

P(e-) = 0.8, P(e+) = -0.6

only events with

cosθ<0.4

all events

Summary next steps

Summary&Next Steps

  • 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
