Sizable tensor modes and the gravitino problem

Abstract content

The measurement of primordial tensor modes in the CMB allows for a determination of the energy scale at the beginning of the `observable' part of inflation. We show in how far such a measurement provides implications for the subsequent phase of inflation and the post-inflationary phase of reheating. Further, we will revise the gravitino problem and show the implications for a supersymmetric scenario where the gravitino is the Dark Matter candidate.
