Neutrino seesaw models at the lhc

What LHC can do for neutrino physics? A lot. One

of them is to probe the heavy degree of freedom in models

producing neutrino masses and mixing.

Production of new particles, the most direct test!

Some sample solutions

Some sample solutions


Neutrino seesaw models at the lhc

For U_{\nu U} of order 0.03, the cross section can be as large as 1 fb for m_N

up to 150 GeV. Not hopelessly small!

For Type III Seesaw, no displayed vertex!

5. Conclusions

Seesaw models are the most economy models to produce naturally small

neutrino masses.

If the seesaw scale is of order a TeV, LHC may be able to directly

produce the heavy degrees of freedom (pair producing) providing direct

test for type II and type III (small light and heavy neutrino mixing) models.

There are solutions with sizeable mixing between light and heavy

neutrinos. In this case the single N (Type-I, III) and E (Type-III) production

cross sections can be as large as 1 fb with masses as heavy as 150 GeV

and be tested at the LHC.

Signature to distinguishing small and large mixing: displaced vertex for

Small mixing and no displaced vertex for large mixing.
