## Two Charged Scalar Field-Based Mass Generation Mechanisms

**Authors:** Lukasz Andrzej Glinka

Despite consistency of the Higgs mechanism, experimental data
have not revealed existence of the Higgs particle. Moreover, the
Higgs mechanism explains why photon is massless, while another
experimental data reveal very small but detectable photon mass.
In this manner the crucial problem is to combine abstract ideas of
the Standard Model with the verified experimental data to obtain
constructive physical picture.
In this paper we discuss two alternative consistent mass generation
mechanisms which are based on charged scalar field and the
O(2) symmetric Higgs potential. Both the mechanisms for abelian
fields of the Standard Model lead to nonzero photon mass, but predict
distinguishable mass of the new neutral scalar boson. Both
the models are similar to the Higgs mechanism. The scenarios
base on existence of a new scalar neutral boson c and an auxiliary
scalar neutral field j which can be interpreted as a dilaton. In the
first model a new scalar particle is massive, and the value of its
mass can be estimated by the present day experimental limits on
the photon mass. In the second model dilaton is massless and a
new scalar particle has a mass which can be determined only by
experimental data. The mass of a photon in this model does not
depend on the mass of a Higgs-like particle.
