# D-instanton generated Dirac neutrino masses

@article{Cveti2008DinstantonGD, title={D-instanton generated Dirac neutrino masses}, author={Mirjam Cveti{\vc} and Paul Langacker}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2008}, volume={78}, pages={066012} }

We present a stringy mechanism to generate Dirac neutrino masses by $D$-instantons in an experimentally relevant mass scale without fine-tuning. Within type IIA string theory with intersecting $D6$-branes, we spell out specific conditions for the emergence of such couplings and provide a class of supersymmetric local SU(5) grand unified models, based on the ${Z}_{2}\ifmmode\times\else\texttimes\fi{}{Z}_{2}^{\ensuremath{'}}$ orientifold compactification, where perturbatively absent Dirac…
