Higgs Mediated EDMs in the Next-to-MSSM: An Application to Electroweak Baryogenesis

By Kingman Cheung, Tie-Jiun Hou, Jae Sik Lee and Eibun Senaha


We perform a study on the predictions of electric-dipole moments (EDMs) of neutron, Mercury (Hg), Thallium (Tl), deuteron, and Radium (Ra) in the framework of next-to-minimal supersymmetric standard model (NMSSM) with CP-violating parameters in the superpotential and soft-supersymmetry-breaking sector. We confine to the case in which only the physical tree-level CP phase $(\phi'_\lambda - \phi'_\kappa)$, associated with the couplings of the singlet terms in the superpotential and with the vacuum-expectation-values (VEVs), takes on a nonzero value. We found that the one-loop contributions from neutralinos are mostly small while the two-loop Higgs-mediated contributions of the Barr-Zee (BZ) type diagrams dominate. We emphasize a scenario motivated by electroweak baryogenesis.Comment: 36 pages, 9 figures, to appear in PR
