We construct N=1 and N=0 chiral four-dimensional vacua of flux compactification in Type IIB string theory. These vacua have the common features that they are free of tadpole instabilities (both NSNS and RR) even for models with N=0 supersymmetry. In addition, the dilaton/complex structure moduli are stabilised and the supergravity background metric is warped. We present an example in which the low energy spectrum contains the MSSM spectrum with three generations of chiral matter. In the N=0… Expand
MSSM GUT string vacua, split supersymmetry and fluxes
We show that previous proposals to accommodate the MSSM with string theory N=0 non-supersymmetric compactifications coming from intersecting D6-branes may be made fully consistent with theExpand
Type IIA Pati–Salam flux vacua
We show that for supersymmetric AdS vacua on type IIA orientifolds with flux compactifications, the RR tadpole cancellation conditions can be completely relaxed, and then the four-dimensional N = IExpand
Fluxes, moduli fixing and MSSM-like vacua in a simple IIA orientifold
We study the effects of adding RR, NS and metric fluxes on a T^6/(\Omega (-1)^{F_L} I_3) Type IIA orientifold. By using the effective flux-induced superpotential we obtain Minkowski or AdS vacua withExpand
Chiral D-brane Models with Frozen Open String Moduli
Most intersecting D-brane vacua in the literature contain additional massless adjoint fields in their low energy spectrum. The existence of these additional fields make it difficult to obtainExpand
Universal soft terms in the MSSM on D-branes
Abstract In Type II string vacua constructed from intersecting/magnetized D-branes, the supersymmetry-breaking soft terms are genericaly non-universal. It is shown that universalExpand
A new mechanism of Kähler moduli stabilization in type IIB theory

Towards realistic string vacua from branes at singularities
We report on progress towards constructing string models incorporating both realistic D-brane matter content and moduli stabilisation with dynamical low-scale super- symmetry breaking. The generalExpand
Moduli stabilisation for chiral global models
A bstractWe combine moduli stabilisation and (chiral) model building in a fully con-sistent global set-up in Type IIB/F-theory. We consider compactifications on Calabi-Yau orientifolds which admit anExpand

Model Building and Phenomenology of Flux-Induced Supersymmetry Breaking on D 3-branes
We study supersymmetry breaking effects induced on D3-branes at singularities by the presence of NSNS and RR 3-form fluxes. First, we discuss some local constructions of chiral models from D3-branesExpand


General N=1 supersymmetric fluxes in massive type IIA string theory
Abstract We study conditions on general fluxes of massive type IIA supergravity that lead to four-dimensional backgrounds with N = 1 supersymmetry. We derive these conditions in the case of SU ( 3 )Expand

Chiral 4d string vacua with D branes and NSNS and RR fluxes
We discuss type-IIB orientifolds with D-branes, and NSNS and RR field strength fluxes. The D-brane sectors lead to open string spectra with non-abelian gauge symmetry and charged chiral fermions. TheExpand
