  • Double beta (ββ) decay experiments are one of the most active research topics in Neutrino Physics. The measurement of the neutrinoless mode 0νββ could give unique information on the neutrino mass scale and nature. The current generation of experiments aims at detector target masses at the 100 kg scale, while the next generation will need to go to the ton scale in order to completely explore the inverse hierarchy models of neutrino mass. Very good energy resolutions and ultra-low background… CONTINUE READING
