The AMoRE (Advanced Mo based Rare process Experiment) Collaboration is planning to employ 40Ca100MoO4 single crystals as a cryogenic Scintillation detector for studying the neutrinoless double-beta decay of the isotope 100Mo. A simultaneous readout of phonon and scintillation signals is performed in order to suppress the intrinsic background. The planned sensitivity of the experiment that would employ 100 kg of 40Ca100MoO4 over five years of data accumulation would be T 1/2 0ν = 3 × 1026 yr, which corresponds to values of the effective Majorana neutrino mass in the range of 〈m ν 〉 ∼ 0.02–0.06 eV.
