If you have a question about this talk, please contact Prof Ian Kenyon. If neutrinos were the one (and only) instance of elementary particles of the Majorana type, they could undergo a hypothetical process violating lepton number, the so-called Neutrinoless double-beta decay (0νββ). If 0νββ indeed were observed, that would be enough to claim the Majorana nature of neutrinos. Several experiments have been conceived, which search for 0νββ in a handful of isotopes, baring a favourable energy-momentum configuration. A variety of
experimental techniques are being employed in the quest. So far the best statistical sensitivity on the half-life for the 0νββ process occurrence is of around 10 In this seminar I will focus on the child born of GERDA and its US counterpart, the “MAJORANA Demonstrator”: LEGEND . Using a two-stage approach with about 200 kg first and then 1000 kg of germanium diodes enriched in Ge76, LEGEND aims to attain a sensitivity around 10 Slides available at: http://www.ep.ph.bham.ac.uk/general/seminars/slides/Giuseppe-Salamanna-2023.pdf This talk is part of the Particle Physics Seminars series. ## This talk is included in these lists:Note that ex-directory lists are not shown. |
