Title: Gravitational waves on CMB from first-order phase transition

Abstract: Particle phase transitions in the early universe including electroweak and grand unification ones are well-studied subjects. We point out that there are new possible particle phase transitions around inflation. Those new inflationary particle phase transitions, if of the first order, may yield low-frequency gravitational waves (GWs) due to bubble dynamics, leaving imprints on the cosmic microwave background (CMB). In contrast to the nearly scale-invariant primordial GWs caused by vacuum fluctuation, these bubble-generated GWs are classical and have scale dependent B-mode spectra. If decoupled from inflaton, the electroweak phase transition during inflation may serve as a mirror image of the one after reheating where the baryon asymmetry could be generated via electroweak baryogenesis (EWBG). The second new electroweak phase transition may also be the source for EWBG.
