Double Beta-Disintegration

  title={Double Beta-Disintegration},
  author={M Gofppert-Maver and T. C. Johns and Hopkins Um 'versity},
N a table showing the existing atomic nuclei it is observed that many groups of isobars occur, the term isobar referring to nuclei of the same atomic weight but different atomic number. It is unreasonable to assume that all isobars have exactly the same energy; one of them therefore will have the lowest energy, the others are unstable. The question arises why the unstable nuclei are in reality metastable, that is, why, io geologic time, they have not all been transformed into the most stable… Expand
Rebuttal of Fermi’s denial of nuclear electrons: Part I: Historical background
The discovery of the neutron by Chadwick in 1932 is discussed in detail. Pauli pointed out that the profile for neutron decay indicates unequivocally that a third particle, in addition to the protonExpand
Results on 82Se 2νββ with CUPID-0 Phase I
The nucleus is an extraordinarily complex object where fundamental forces are at work. The solution of this many-body problem has challenged physicists for decades: several models with complementaryExpand
Neutrinoless Double-Beta Decay
This paper introduces the neutrinoless double-beta decay (the rarest nuclear weak process) and describes the status of the research for this transition, both from the point of view of theoretical Expand
Neutrinoless Double-Beta Decay and New Physics
This paper introduces the neutrinoless double-beta decay the rarest nuclear weak process and describes the status of the research for this transition, both from the point of view of theoreticalExpand
On the Extraction of Low-energy Constants of Single- and Double-$\beta$ Decays from Lattice QCD: A Sensitivity Analysis
Lattice quantum chromodynamics (LQCD) has the promise of constraining low-energy constants (LECs) of nuclear effective field theories (EFTs) from first-principles calculations that incorporate theExpand
Neutrino: chronicles of an aloof protagonist
We give a brief account of the history of neutrino, and how that most aloof of all particles has shaped our search for a theory of fundamental interactions ever since it was theoretically proposed.Expand
Quantifying the Impact of Various Radioactive Background Sources On Germanium-76 Zero-Neutrino-Double-Beta-Decay Experiments
The goal of searching for 0νββ-decay is to probe an absolute neutrino mass scale suggested by the mass-splitting parameters observed by neutrino oscillation experiments. Furthermore, observation ofExpand
Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay with Germanium Detectors: 1026 yr and Beyond
In the global landscape of neutrinoless double beta (0νββ) decay search, the use of semiconductor germanium detectors provides many advantages. The excellent energy resolution, the negligibleExpand
New physics in the lepton sector
This thesis addresses some scenarios of new physics as well as their consequences on the lepton sector. The fact that neutrinos are massive is one of the problems left unsolved by the Standard Model.Expand
Construction and operation of the EXO-100 cryogenic facility for R&D in liquid xenon: advances in barium ion tagging
Neutrinoless double-beta decay is a hypothetical process which, if observed, implies that neutrinos are Majorana particles. Moreover, it is a lepton-number-violating process and thus forbidden in theExpand
