Full-text: Open access


We present a countably infinite number of new explicit co-homogeneity one Sasaki-Einstein metrics on $S^2\times S^3$ of both quasi-regular and irregular type. These give rise to new solutions of type IIB supergravity which are expected to be dual to $\mathcal{N}=1$ superconformal field theories in four dimensions with compact or non-compact $R$-symmetry and rational or irrational central charges, respectively.
