    Abstract

    We study the CPT-even dimension-six Chern–Simons-like term by including dynamical Kalb–Ramond and scalar fields to examine the cosmological birefringence. We show that the combined effect of a neutrino current and a Kalb–Ramond field could induce a sizable rotation polarization angle in the cosmic microwave background radiation polarization.
