In this Letter, we study a curvaton model described by a Dirac-Born-Infeld-like action. We Calculate the spectrum of curvature perturbation induced by DBI-curvaton and estimate its non-Gaussianity. We find that in the limit Of low Sound speed the amplitude Of Curvature perturbation is enhanced more than that in DBI inflation. This result also means that the inflationary scale with DBI-curvaton may be lower than that ill usual curvaton model In addition we also find that under same conditions the local non., Gaussianity level in DBI-curvaton is generally about 10 times larger than that in usual curvaton model, which is interesting for Current observations. This work in some sense explores a new application of brame-cosmology in inflation. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
