Stability and vacuum energy in open string models with boken supersymmetry.

Abel, Steven and Dudas, Emilian and Lewis, Daniel and Partouche, Herve (2019) 'Stability and vacuum energy in open string models with boken supersymmetry.', Journal of high energy physics., 2019 (10). p. 226.


We construct type I string models with supersymmetry broken by compactifi- cation that are non-tachyonic and have exponentially small effective potential at one-loop. All open string moduli can be stabilized, while the closed string moduli remain massless at one-loop. The backgrounds of interest have rigid Wilson lines by the use of stacked branes, and some models should have heterotic duals. We also present non-tachyonic backgrounds with positive potentials of runaway type at one-loop. This class of models could be used to test various swampland conjectures.
