The main achievements during 75 years of research on double beta decay have been reviewed. The existing experimental data have been presented and the capabilities of the next-generation detectors have been demonstrated. 
The Gerda experiment for the search of 0νββ decay in 76Ge
The Gerda collaboration is performing a search for neutrinoless double beta decay of 76Ge with the eponymous detector. The experiment has been installed and commissioned at the Laboratori Nazionali
Neutrino mass ordering in future neutrinoless double beta decay experiments
Motivated by recent intensive experimental efforts on searching for neutrinoless double beta decays, we present a detailed quantitative analysis on the prospect of resolving neutrino mass ordering in
Searches for neutrinoless double beta decay
Neutrinoless double beta decay is a lepton number violating process whose observation would also establish that neutrinos are their own anti-particles. There are many experimental efforts with a
Signal and background studies for the search of neutrinoless double beta decay in GERDA
The GERDA experiment searches for the neutrinoless double beta decay in Ge-76, by operating bare HPGe detectors in ultra-pure liquid Ar. This dissertation presents a first decomposition of the
Study of Lepton Number Conserving and Non-Conserving Processes Using GERDA Phase I Data
The GERmanium Detector Array (GERDA) experiment, located underground at the INFN Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso (LNGS) in Italy, uses high-purity germanium detectors to search for neutrinoless
GERDA results and the future perspectives for the neutrinoless double beta decay search using 76Ge
The GERmanium Detector Array (GERDA) is a low background experiment at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso (LNGS) of INFN designed to search for the rare neutrinoless double beta decay (0νββ) of
Results from Gerda
Development of Pulse Shape Discrimination Methods as Tools for Background Suppression in High Purity Germanium Detectors used in theGERDA Experiment
Neutrinoless double beta decay experiments are well recognized as the most powerful probes of the nature of the neutrinos (whether they are Dirac or Majorana particles), their absolute mass scale and
The AMoRE: Search for neutrinoless double beta decay of 100Mo
The AMoRE (Advanced Mo-based Rare process Experiment) collaboration is using calcium molybdate (dep48Ca 100MoO4) crystals enriched in 100Mo and depleted in 48Ca to search for neutrinoless double-beta
Results on Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay Search in GERDA: Background Modeling and Limit Setting
The neutrinoless double beta (0νββ) decay experiment GERDA has taken 21.6 kg·yr of data in Phase I. A comprehensive background model is presented. The half life of the two-neutrino double beta decay


Double beta decay of 82Se.
A Time Projection Chamber (TPC) has been constructed to search for double beta decay in 82Se. The lifetime for the 2ν2β is τ1/2=1.4(+6−3) 1020 years (68%C.L.). Limits for oν2β decay with and without
SuperNEMO Project Status
The SuperNEMO experiment aims to reach a sensitivity up to 1026 years on the half‐life of neutrinoless double beta decay. The chosen way is to build a “tracko‐calo” detector with at least 100 kg of
The double beta decay spectrum of100Mo as measured with a TPC
A time projection chamber with 8.3 grams of enriched 100MoO3 as the central electrode has been operating approximately five months in an underground laboratory. A preliminary analysis of the
Possible evidence for a time variation of the weak-interaction constant from double-beta-decay experiments
The probabilities of the two-neutrino double-beta decay of 82Se and 96Zr in direct (counter) and geochemical experiments are compared. Relevant experimental data on 130Te are also analyzed. It is
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 no
