Bilinear R Parity Violation at the ILC - Neutrino Physics at Colliders    [PDF]

Jenny List, Benedikt Vormwald
Supersymmetry (SUSY) with bilinearly broken R parity (bRPV) offers an attractive possibility to explain the origin of neutrino masses and mixings. Thereby neutralinos become a probe to the neutrino sector since studying neutralino decays gives access to neutrino parameters at colliders. We present the study of a bRPV SUSY model at the International Linear Collider (ILC), with the bRPV parameters determined from current neutrino data. The ILC offers a very clean environment to study the neutralino properties as well as their subsequent decays, which typically involve a W/Z and a lepton. This study is based on ILC beam parameters according to the Technical Design Report for a center of mass energy of 500 GeV. Full detector simulation of the International Large Detector (ILD) was performed for SUSY and Standard Model processes. We show for the fully simulated example point that the chi10 mass can be reconstructed with an uncertainty of less than 0.2% for an integrated luminosity of 100 fb-1 from direct chi10 pair production, thus to a large extent independently of the rest of the SUSY spectrum. We also demonstrate that the achievable precision on the atmospheric neutrino mixing angle sin^2(\theta_23) from measuring the neutralino branching fractions BR(chi10 -> W \mu) and BR(chi10 -> W \tau) at the ILC is comparable to current uncertainties from neutrino experiments. Thus the ILC could have the opportunity to unveil the mechanism of neutrino mass generation.
