We discuss the role of F-term uplifting in stabilizing moduli within the framework of heterotic string theory. It turns out that the uplifting sector plays an important role in fixing the volume modulus at one of the self-dual points of a modular invariant potential. For the volume modulus stabilized at a self-dual point, the F-term uplifting leads to the dilation stabilization which can naturally yield the mirage mediation pattern of soft supersymmetry breaking terms. Generalizing to the case…

We revisit the cosmological history in the presence of light moduli by including possible thermal effects in the scalar potential. The well known cosmological moduli problem regards initial energy

Non-decoupling of heavy scalars in cosmology

The theory describing physics at the highest energy scales likely contains extra dimensions, whose internal degrees of freedom result in many massive field and particles. At accelerator experiments

String To Characterize the Field Synergy during CO2 Capture by CaCl2-Supported MEA Adsorbent

CO2 capture is quite effective for protecting the environment. A CaCl2-supported MEA adsorbent was identified as an efficient adsorbent. To design this adsorbent more efficiently from the field
