Physics at Virginia

We present a model of neutrino masses in the framework of the Electroweak scale Right-handed neutrinos (EW-νR) model, which is constructed with a horizontal A4 symmetry. Such a model has several interesting phenomenological implications. We not only obtain the experimentally desired form of the PMNS matrix but also provide an explanation of why UPMNS is very different from VCKM. Moreover, the one-loop induced lepton flavor violating radiative decays li → lj  γ and μ → e conversion in an extended mirror model might be related to each other under a good approximation that we have established. Implications concerning the possible detection of mirror leptons at the LHC and the ILC as well as future searches for  μ → e conversion at Fermilab and J-PARC COMET are also discussed.
