so apologies if this is a silly question...
In the type 1 see saw model we add extra Majorana fermions to our model. These fermions have to be total gauge singlets in order to have a Majorana mass term and thus trigger the see saw mechanism.
In a supersymmetric model we add gauge singlet superfields whose fermionic components are majorana. My question is regarding the scalar component of this superfield - is it real or complex?
I think it should be real as the superfield itself has to be a gauge singlet and thus the scalar field has no charge associated with it.
Yes? No? Thanks in advance
