Search for electron decay mode e → γ + ν with prototype of Borexino detector

Abstract

The prototype of the Borexino detector Counting Test Facility, located in the Gran-Sasso laboratory, has been used to obtain a bound on the stability of the electron. The new lower limit on the mean lifetime defined on 32.1 days of data set is τ(e− → νe + γ ) 4.6× 1026 yr (90% c.l.).  2002 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
