Lepton number violation in heavy Higgs decays to sneutrinos
We study the possibility of observing lepton number violation in the right-handed sneutrino sector of the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model extended with right-handed neutrinos. The scalar potential introduces a lepton number violating mass term for the right-handed sneutrinos, which generates a phase difference between the sneutrino and antisneutrino. If we have light higgsinos and right-handed sneutrinos, the sneutrino decay width is determined by the tiny Yukawa couplings, which allows the phase difference between the sneutrino and antisneutrino states to accumulate before the sneutrino decay. We investigate the possibilities of producing sneutrino pairs resonantly through a heavy Higgs of such a model and the ability of seeing a lepton number violating signature emerging from sneutrinos at the Large Hadron Collider. We also discuss how a possible future signal of this type could be used to determine the neutrino Yukawa couplings.
