Double beta decay experiments

  • A. S. Barabash
Article

Abstract

The present status of double beta decay experiments is reviewed. The results of the most sensitive experiments are discussed. Proposals for future double beta decay experiments with a sensitivity to the 〈m ν〉 at the level of (0.01–0.1) eV are considered.

Keywords

Daughter Nucleus Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay Nuclear Matrix Element Double Electron Capture Double Beta Decay Experiment 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
