According to Ahluwalia and Grumiller, massive spin-half fields of mass-dimension one can be constructed using the eigenspinors of the charge-conjugation operator (Elko) as expansion coefficients. In this paper, we generalize their result by constructing quantum fields from higher-spin Elko. The kinematics of these fields are thoroughly investigated. Starting with the field operators, their propagators and Hamiltonians are derived. These fields satisfy the higher-spin generalization of the Klein… 
Symmetries and unitary interactions of mass dimension one fermionic dark matter
The fermionic fields constructed from Elko have several unexpected properties. They satisfy the Klein-Gordon but not the Dirac equation and are of mass dimension one instead of three-half. Starting
On a local mass dimension one Fermi field of spin one-half and the theoretical crevice that allows it
Since the 1928 seminal work of Dirac, and its subsequent development by Weinberg, a view is held that there is a unique Fermi field of spin one-half. It is endowed with mass dimension three-half.
A story of phases, duals, and adjoints for a local Lorentz covariant theory of mass dimension one fermions
We introduce a fermionic spin one-half quantum field with eigenspinors of the charge conjugation operator as its expansion coefficients. For the eigenspinors we make a very specific choice of the
Spin-half mass dimension one fermions and their higher-spin generalizations
A self-contained review on spin-half mass dimension one fermions and their higher-spin generalizations is presented. Starting from the two-component left-handed Weyl spinors, the Dirac spinors and
Spinor fields on the bulk and on compactified dimensions
This work has as the main aim to explore the nature of the fermionic fields, through a classification of spinor fields about physical space of interest, such as the bulk and the compactified space
The Theory of Local Mass Dimension One Fermions of Spin One Half
About a decade ago the present author in collaboration with Daniel Grumiller presented an ‘unexpected theoretical discovery’ of spin one-half fermions with mass dimension one (Ahluwalia-Khalilova and
Elko and mass dimension one field of spin one half: causality and Fermi statistics
We review how Elko arise as an extension of complex valued four-component Majorana spinors. This is followed by a discussion that constrains certain elements of phase freedom. A proof is reviewed
A supersymmetric Lagrangian for fermionic fields with mass dimension one
We present the derivation of a supersymmetric model for fermionic fields with integer-valued mass dimension based on a general superfield with one free spinor index. First, we develop a formalism
Mass dimension one fermions from flag dipole spinors
According to the Lounesto classification, there are six classes of spinors. The Dirac and Weyl spinors belong to the first three and the sixth classes respectively. The remaining fourth and fifth
Mass Dimension One Fermions
In 2005, Dharam Ahluwalia and Daniel Grumiller reported an unexpected theoretical discovery of mass dimension one fermions. These are an entirely new class of spin one half particles, and because of
