Searching for TeV scale leptoquarks in Grand Unified Theories
Grand Unified Theories (GUTs) are prime candidates for extensions of the Standard Model. An important prediction of GUTs is the existence of leptoquarks: hypothetical particles that may, for instance, contribute to proton decay. In this presentation, we discuss the mass scales at which we can expect the presence of leptoquarks. Specifically, we identify a scenario where leptoquarks can naturally exist at the TeV scale. This finding provides theoretical motivation to continue the search for leptoquarks at experimentally accessible energies.
