We report on the measurement of the two-neutrino double-beta decay half-life of $$^{130}$$130Te with the CUORE-0 detector. From an exposure of 33.4 kg year of TeO$$_2$$2, the half-life is determined to be $$T_{1/2}^{2\nu }$$T1/22ν = [8.2 ± 0.2 (stat.) ± 0.6 (syst.)] $$\times $$× 10$$^{20}$$20 year. This result is obtained after a detailed reconstruction of the sources responsible for the CUORE-0 counting rate, with a specific study of those contributing to the $$^{130}$$130Te neutrinoless…

All existing positive results on two neutrino double beta decay and two neutrino double electron capture in different nuclei were analyzed. Using the procedure recommended by the Particle Data Group,
Evidence of Single State Dominance in the Two-Neutrino Double-β Decay of ^{82}Se with CUPID-0.
The very high signal-to-background ratio, along with the detailed reconstruction of the background sources allowed us to identify the single state dominance as the underlying mechanism of such a process, demonstrating that the higher state dominance hypothesis is disfavored at the level of 5.5σ.
Expected sensitivity to 128Te neutrinoless double beta decay with the CUORE TeO2 cryogenic bolometers

First Result on the Neutrinoless Double-β Decay of ^{82}Se with CUPID-0.
The heat-light readout provides a powerful tool for the rejection of α particles and allows us to suppress the background in the region of interest down to (3.6_{-1.4}^{+1.9})×10^{-3}  counts/(keV kg yr), an unprecedented level for this technique.
Improved Limit on Neutrinoless Double-Beta Decay in ^{130} Te with CUORE.
New results from the search for neutrinoless double-beta decay in ^{130} Te with the CUORE detector are reported, finding no evidence for 0νββ decay and setting a 90% credibility interval Bayesian lower limit of 3.2×10′  yr on the half-life for this process.

First Results from CUORE: A Search for Lepton Number Violation via 0νββ Decay of ^{130}Te.
The CUORE experiment, a ton-scale cryogenic bolometer array, recently began operation at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso in Italy, and it is applied for the first time to a high-sensitivity search for a lepton-number-violating process: ^{130}Te neutrinoless double-beta decay.


Initial performance of the CUORE-0 experiment
CUORE-0 is a cryogenic detector that uses an array of tellurium dioxide bolometers to search for neutrinoless double-beta decay of $$\mathrm {^{130}Te}$$130Te. We present the first data analysis with
Double-β-decayQvalues ofTe130,Te128, andTe120
The double-$\ensuremath{\beta}$-decay $Q$ values of $^{130}\mathrm{Te}$, $^{128}\mathrm{Te}$, and $^{120}\mathrm{Te}$ have been determined from parent-daughter mass differences measured with the
Limit on neutrinoless ββ decay of 136Xe from the first phase of KamLAND-Zen and comparison with the positive claim in 76Ge.
The combined results from KamLAND-Zen and EXO-200 give T(1/2)(0ν)>3.4×10(25) yr at 90% C.L., which corresponds to a Majorana neutrino mass limit of <(120-250) meV based on a representative range of available matrix element calculations.

The phenomenon of double $\ensuremath{\beta}$-disintegration is one for which there is a marked difference between the results of Majorana's symmetrical theory of the neutrino and those of the

The atomic masses of 130Te and 130Xe have been obtained by measuring cyclotron frequency ratios of pairs of triply charged ions simultaneously trapped in a Penning trap and the double-beta-decay Q value is determined to be Qbetabeta(130Te) = 2527.518(13) keV.
