Abstract

The liquid Xenon (DAMA/LXe) set-up of the DAMA experiment at the Gran Sasso National Laboratories of the I.N.F.N. and its results are addressed. In particular, new results achieved on the search for the charge-non-conserving decay of 136Xe into 136Cs and on the search for the nucleon and di-nucleon decay into invisible channels in 136Xe are presented. They have been obtained by using the data collected over 8823.54 hours previously published investigating the 134Xe and 136Xe double beta decay modes.
