The Pauli Exclusion Principle (PEP) was introduced by the austrian physicist Wolfgang Pauli in 1925. Since then, several experiments have checked its validity. From 2006 until 2010, the VIP (Violation of the Pauli Principle) experiment took data at the LNGS underground laboratory to test the PEP. This experiment looked for electronic 2p to Is transitions in copper, where 2 electrons are in the Is state before the transition happens. These transitions violate the PEP. The lack of detection of X… 

VIP-2 at LNGS: An experiment on the validity of the Pauli Exclusion Principle for electrons

We are experimentally investigating possible violations of standard quantum mechanics predictions in the Gran Sasso underground laboratory in Italy. We test with high precision the Pauli Exclusion

Experimental search for the violation of Pauli exclusion principle

By introducing a simultaneous spectral fit of the signal and background data in the analysis, the VIolation of Pauli exclusion principle -2 experiment succeeded in taking into account systematic errors that could not be evaluated previously in this type of measurements.

Test of the Pauli Exclusion Principle in the VIP-2 Underground Experiment

A first result from the VIP-2 experiment improving on the VIP limit is reported, which solidifies the final goal of achieving a two orders of magnitude gain in the long run.

VIP2 at Gran Sasso - Test of the validity of the spin statistics theorem for electrons with X-ray spectroscopy

In the VIP2 VIolation of the Pauli Exlusion Principle (PEP) experiment at the Gran Sasso underground laboratory (LNGS) we are searching for possible violations of standard quantum mechanics

Phenomenology of the Pauli exclusion principle violations due to the non-perturbative generalized uncertainty principle

New phenomenological implications of the Generalized Uncertainty Principle (GUP), a modification of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle (HUP) are explored in light of constraints arising from

Testing noncommutative spacetimes and violations of the Pauli Exclusion Principle through underground experiments

We propose to deploy limits that arise from different tests of the Pauli Exclusion Principle: i) to provide theories of quantum gravity with experimental guidance; ii) to distinguish, among the

Tests of Pauli exclusion principle violations from noncommutative quantum gravity

We review the main recent progresses in noncommutative space–time phenomenology in underground experiments. A popular model of noncommutative space–time is [Formula: see text]-Poincaré model, based

Models and (some) Searches for CPT Violation: From Early Universe to the Present Era

In the talk, I review theoretical models, inspired by quantum gravity, that may violate CPT symmetry. The amount of violation today (which is constrained severely by a plethora of experiments that I

Non-commutative quantum gravity phenomenology in underground experiments

We show how non-commutative spacetime models can induce Pauli Exclusion Principle (PEP) forbidden nuclear and atomic transitions. We focalize our analysis on one of the most popular instantiations of

A modern guide to {\rm $\theta$}-Poincar\'e

Motivated by the recent interest in underground experiments phenomenology, we review the main aspects of one specific non-commutative space-time model, based on the Groenewold-Moyal plane algebra,



Experimental search for the “impossible atoms” Pauli Exclusion Principle violation and spontaneous collapse of the wave function at test

Many experiments investigated the possible violation of the Pauli Exclusion Principle (PEP) since its discovery in 1925. The VIP(Violation of the Pauli Principle) experiment tested the PEP by

Testing the Pauli Exclusion Principle for Electrons

One of the fundamental rules of nature and a pillar in the foundation of quantum theory and thus of modern physics is represented by the Pauli Exclusion Principle. We know that this principle is

New search for processes violating the Pauli exclusion principle in sodium and in iodine

In this paper a new search for non-Paulian nuclear processes, i.e. processes normally forbidden by the Pauli Exclusion Principle (PEP), is presented. It has been carried out at the Gran Sasso

Experimental tests of Quantum Mechanics: from Pauli Exclusion Principle Violation to spontaneous collapse models

The Pauli exclusion principle (PEP) and, more generally, the spin-statistics connection, is at the very basis of our understanding of matter. The PEP spurs, presently, a lively debate on its possible
