Why does the Kähler Potential only contain left handed Weyl spinors?

In summary, the Kähler Potential is a mathematical construct used in supersymmetric theories that describes interactions between different fields. Left handed Weyl spinors are used because they can be paired with right handed Weyl spinors to form a complex scalar field, preserving supersymmetry. This choice has physical implications, leading to a chiral theory. While the Kähler Potential can be written in terms of other spinors, only left handed Weyl spinors are compatible with supersymmetry.

Why aren't the right handed Weyl spinors included?
