The possibility that neutrinos may be their own antiparticles, unique among the known fundamental particles, arises from the symmetric theory of fermions proposed by Ettore Majorana in 19371. Given the profound consequences of such Majorana neutrinos, among which is a potential explanation for the matter–antimatter asymmetry of the universe via leptogenesis2, the Majorana nature of neutrinos commands intense experimental scrutiny globally; one of the primary experimental probes is neutrinoless…

Current experiments to search for broken lepton-number symmetry through the observation of neutrinoless double-beta decay ( 0 νββ ) provide the most stringent limits on the Majorana nature of

Neutrinoless double beta decay and the muonium-to-antimuonium transition in models with a doubly charged scalar

The lepton number and flavor violations are important possible ingredients of the lepton physics. The neutrinoless double beta decay and the transition of the muonium into antimuonuim are related to

Online triggers for supernova and pre-supernova neutrino detection with cryogenic detectors

Supernovae (SNe) are among the most energetic events in the universe still far from being fully understood. An early and prompt detection of neutrinos is a one-time opportunity for the realization of
