Abstract

We propose the unified models of cosmological inflation, spontaneous SUSY breaking, and the dark energy (de Sitter vacuum) in N= 1 supergravity with the dilaton–axion chiral superfield T in the presence of an N= 1 vector multiplet with the alternative Fayet–Iliopoulos term. By using the Kähler potential as K= - αlog (T+ T¯) and the superpotential as a sum of a constant and a linear term, we find that viable inflation is possible for 3 ≤ α≤ αmax where αmax≈ 7.235. Observations of the amplitude of primordial scalar perturbations fix the SUSY breaking scale in our models as high as 1013GeV. In the case of α> 3 the axion gets the tree-level (non-tachyonic) mass comparable to the inflaton mass.
