The IGEX Ge-76 neutrinoless double beta decay experiment: Prospects for next generation experiments
The International Germanium Experiment (IGEX) has analyzed 117 mole yr of 76Ge data from its isotopically enriched (86% 76Ge) germanium detectors. Applying pulse-shape discrimination (PSD) to theExpand

A Decommissioned LHC model magnet as an axion telescope
The 8.4 T, 10 m long transverse magnetic field of a twin aperture LHC bending magnet can be utilized as a macroscopic coherent solar axion-to-photon converter. Numerical calculations show that theExpand

Comment on "Evidence for Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay"
We comment on the recent claim for the experimental observation of neutrinoless double-beta decay. We discuss several limitations in the analysis provided in that paper and conclude that there is noExpand
