Abstract

The phenomenology of mirror fermions is studied in a model with three heavy mirror fermion families. The tree unitarity bounds on the mirror masses are determined. The production cross-sections and decay characteristics of mirror fermions are calculated in high energy electron-proton collisions. For mirror mixing angles of the order of the present upper limits mirror fermion production at HERA ( {Mathematical expression}) is observable up to masses near 200 GeV. For a possible HERA upgrade ( {Mathematical expression}) this limit goes up to about 350 GeV and an ep collider in the LEP tunnel ( {Mathematical expression}) could cover the range below 500 GeV.
