Abstract We consider a neutrino Two Higgs Doublet Model (νTHDM) in which neutrinos obtain naturally small Dirac masses from the soft symmetry breaking of a global U(1) X symmetry. We extended the model so the soft term is generated by the spontaneous breaking of U(1) X by a new scalar field. The symmetry breaking pattern can also stabilize a scalar dark matter candidate. After...

Although the seesaw mechanism is a natural explanation for the small neutrino masses, there are cases when the Majorana mass terms for the right-handed neutrinos are not allowed due to symmetry. In that case, if neutrino-specific Higgs doublet is introduced, neutrinos become Dirac particles and their small masses can be explained by its small VEV. We show that the same symmetry...

We consider a local U(1) B−L extension of Zee-Babu model to explain the recently observed 3.5 keV X-ray line signal. The model has three Standard model (SM)-singlet Dirac fermions with different U(1) B−L charges. A complex scalar field charged under U(1) B−L is introduced to break the U(1) B−L symmetry. After U(1) B−L symmetry breaking a remnant discrete symmetry stabilizes the...

AbstractWe extend the Zee-Babu model for the neutrino masses and mixings by first incorporating a scalar dark matter X with Z 2 symmetry and then X and a dark scalar φ with global U(1) symmetry. In the latter scenario the singly and doubly charged scalars that are new in the Zee-Babu model can explain the large annihilation cross section of a dark matter pair into two photons as...
