Abstract

The production cross sections and decay characteristics of mirror leptons are calculated in high energy electron-proton collisions in a model with three mirror pairs of fermion families. For mirror mixing angles of the order of the present upper limits mirror lepton production at HERA ( s=314 GeV) is observable up to masses near 200 GeV. For a possible HERA upgrade ( s=566 GeV) this limit goes up to about 350 GeV and an ep collider in the LEP tunnel ( s=1.4 TeV) could cover the whole theoretically plausible range below 500 GeV.
