Abstract

We present a new BPS flow within minimal \( \mathcal{N}=1 \) supergravity in seven dimensions describing a warped AdS3 background supported by a “dyonic” profile of the three-form. Furthermore, we discuss the holographic interpretation of the above solution in terms of a defect SCFT2 inside the 6d (1, 0) theory dual to the AdS in the asymptotic region. Finally we provide the brane picture of the aforementioned defect CFT as D2- and wrapped D4-branes ending on a D6 - NS5 - D8 funnel in massive type IIA string theory.
