Abstract: In this work, we investigate the properties of the Abelian gauge vector field in the background of a string-cigar braneworld. Both the thin and thick brane limits are considered. The string-cigar scenario can be regarded as an interior and exterior string-like solution. The source undergoes a geometric Ricci flow which is related to a variation of the bulk cosmological constant. The Ricci flow changes the width and amplitude of the massless mode at the brane core and recovers the usual string-like behavior at large distances. By means of suitable numerical methods, we attain the Kaluza–Klein (KK) spectrum for the string-like and the string-cigar models. For the string-cigar model, the KK modes are smooth near the brane and their amplitude are enhanced by the brane core. Furthermore, the analogue Schrödinger potentialis also regulated by the geometric flow.
