Neutrinoless double beta decay experiments and the neutrino mass
Presented by Dr. Carla MACOLINO on 24 Jul 2014 from 14:50 to 15:10
Type: Lepton Flavour Violation and Neutrinos
Track: Lepton Flavour Violation and Neutrinos
Neutrinoless double beta decay is a lepton number violating process which allows to investigate the Dirac or Majorana nature of neutrinos and to indirectly estimate their absolute mass. At present, several experiments based on different experimental techniques are searching for this rare decay. In this talk a review of the most relevant current and upcoming experiments is given and the comparison of their sensitivity in terms of neutrino mass is discussed.
