Ananthanarayan, B and Rindani, Saurabh D and Singh, Ritesh K and Bartl, A (2004) Transverse beam polarization and CP-violating triple-gauge-boson couplings in e+e- -> gamma Z. [Preprint]
We show that an anomalous CP-violating gamma-gamma-Z vertex gives rise to a novel asymmetry with transversely polarized electron and positron beams in the process e+e- -> gamma Z. This asymmetry, which is odd under naive time reversal, is proportional to the real part of the gamma-gamma-Z CP violating coupling. This is in contrast to the simple forward-backward asymmetry of the gamma (or Z) with unpolarized or longitudinally polarized beams studied earlier, which is even under naive time reversal, and is proportional to the imaginary part. We estimate the sensitivity of future experiments to the determination of CP-odd gamma-gamma-Z and gamma-Z-Z couplings using these asymmetries and transversely polarized beams.
