A method for determining the transition energies of $^{\mathrm{83m}}$Kr at the KATRIN experiment

  title={A method for determining the transition energies of \$^\{\mathrm\{83m\}\}\$Kr at the KATRIN experiment},
  author={Caroline Rodenbeck},
The neutrino mass experiment KATRIN uses conversion electrons from the 32 . 2 - keV transition of the nuclear isomer ⁸³mKr for calibration. Comparing the measured energy of the conversion electrons to the literature values allows for an independent evaluation of KATRIN’s energy scale, but the comparison is limited by the uncertainties in the literature values of the transition energies. In this paper, a novel method to perform precision spectroscopy of the transition energies is presented…

Improved Upper Limit on the Neutrino Mass from a Direct Kinematic Method by KATRIN.
An upper limit of 1.1 eV (90% confidence level) is derived on the absolute mass scale of neutrinos on the Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino experiment KATRIN, which improves upon previous mass limits from kinematic measurements by almost a factor of 2 and provides model-independent input to cosmological studies of structure formation.
