Supersymmetric ZN×ZM orientifolds in 4D with D-branes at angles.

Förste, S. and Honecker, G. and Schreyer, R. (2001) 'Supersymmetric ZN×ZM orientifolds in 4D with D-branes at angles.', Nuclear physics B., 593 (1-2). pp. 127-154.


We construct orientifolds of type IIA string theory. The theory is compactified on a T6/ZN×ZM orbifold. In addition worldsheet parity in combination with a reflection of three compact directions is modded out. Tadpole cancellation requires to add D-6-branes at angles. The resulting four dimensional theories are N=1 supersymmetric and non-chiral.
