Discrimination of naturally occurring radioactive material in plastic scintillator material
Plastic scintillator material is used in many applications for the detection of gamma rays from radioactive material, primarily due to the sensitivity per unit cost compared to other detectionExpand

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

The majorana neutrinoless double-beta decay experiment
The proposed Majorana double-beta decay experiment is based on an array of segmented intrinsic Ge detectors with a total mass of 500 kg of Ge isotopically enriched to 86% in 76Ge. A discussion isExpand
