Current unknowns in the three-neutrino framework
Prediction of the Neutrinos Masses Using Some Empirical Formulae
In a paper in year 2011 the author implicitly predicted the masses of the neutrinos using some old empirical formulae. Now this prediction is explicitly written, mass of one neutrino is calculated as
First Calorimetric Measurement of Electron Capture in $${}^{193}$$193Pt with a Transition-Edge Sensor
The neutrino mass can be extracted from a high statistics, high resolution calorimetric spectrum of electron capture in $${}^{163}$$163Ho. In order to better understand the shape of the calorimetric


Can neutrino mass be measured in low-energy electron capture decay?
The standard kinematic method for determining neutrino mass from the beta decay of tritium or other isotope is to measure the shape of the electron spectrum near the endpoint. It has been known for
Limit on electron neutrino mass from observation of the beta decay of molecular tritium
We report the most sensitive upper limit set on the mass of the electron antineutrino. The upper limit of 9.4 eV (95% confidence level) was obtained from a study of the shape of the beta decay
Observation of High-Energy Neutrino Reactions and the Existence of Two Kinds of Neutrinos
From the reaction pi /sup plus or minus / yields mu /sup plus or minus / + ( nu / nu /sup -/), it is dem onstrated that the neutrinos produce mu mesons but not electrons and are likely to be
Helicity of Neutrinos
A combined analysis of circular polarization and resonant scattering of gamma rays following orbital electron capture measures the helicity of the neutrino. A measurement was carried out with Eu/sup
Assessment of molecular effects on neutrino mass measurements from tritium β decay
The beta decay of molecular tritium currently provides the highest sensitivity in laboratory-based neutrino mass measurements. The upcoming Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino (KATRIN) experiment will improve
Relativistic cyclotron radiation detection of tritium decay electrons as a new technique for measuring the neutrino mass
The shape of the beta-decay energy distribution is sensitive to the mass of the electron neutrino. Attempts to measure the endpoint shape of tritium decay have so far seen no distortion from the
Final Results from phase II of the Mainz Neutrino Mass Search in Tritium β Decay
the date of receipt and acceptance should be inserted later Abstract. The paper reports on the improved Mainz experiment on tritum β spectroscopy which yields a 10 times' higher signal to background
First results from KamLAND: evidence for reactor antineutrino disappearance.
In the context of two-flavor neutrino oscillations with CPT invariance, all solutions to the solar neutrinos problem except for the "large mixing angle" region are excluded.
