The next-generation Enriched Xenon Observatory (nEXO) is a proposed experiment to search for neutrinoless double-β (0νββ) decay in Xe136 with a target half-life sensitivity of approximately 1028 yr using 5×103 kg of isotopically enriched liquid-xenon in a time projection chamber. This improvement of two orders of magnitude in sensitivity over current limits is obtained by a significant increase of the Xe136 mass, the monolithic and homogeneous configuration of the active medium, and the… 
Construction and commissioning of the tracker for the SuperNEMO Demonstrator Module and Unfolding the 2νββ spectrum of 100Mo from the NEMO-3 experiment
The SuperNEMO experiment will search for the neutrinoless double beta decay of 82Se, with an expected half-life sensitivity of >10^26 years. The first stage of the experiment, the SuperNEMO
TeV-scale Lepton Number Violation: Connecting Leptogenesis, Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay, and Colliders
In the context of TeV-scale lepton number violating (LNV) interactions, we illustrate the interplay between leptogenesis, neutrinoless double beta (0νββ) decay, and LNV searches at proton-proton
Exposure-background duality in the searches of neutrinoless double beta decay
Tremendous efforts are required to scale the summit of observing neutrinoless double beta decay ($0 \nu \beta \beta$). This article quantitatively explores the interplay between exposure (target mass
Characterization of alpha and beta interactions in liquid xenon
Liquid xenon based detectors have achieved great sensitivities in rare event searches. Precise knowledge of the scintillation and ionization responses of the medium is es-sential to correctly model
Cosmogenic Activation in Double Beta Decay Experiments
Double beta decay is a very rare nuclear process and, therefore, experiments intended to detect it must be operated deep underground and in ultra-low background conditions. Long-lived radioisotopes
Unravelling the left-right mixing using $0\nu \beta\beta$ decay and collider probes
In the context of the minimal left-right symmetric model, we study the interplay between current and future neutrinoless double beta ( 0 νββ ) decay experiments, long-lived particle searches at the
Bound-state dark matter with Majorana neutrinos
Neutrinoless double beta decay versus other probes of heavy sterile neutrinos
We make a comparative study of the neutrinoless double beta decay constraints on heavy sterile neutrinos versus other direct and indirect constraints from both lepton number conserving and violating
Geometric CP violation and flavour predictions from orbifold compactification
We propose a theory for fermion masses and mixings in which an $A_4$ family symmetry arises naturally from a six-dimensional spacetime after orbifold compactification. The flavour symmetry leads to


The NEXT Collaboration
The goal of the NEXT experiment is the observation of neutrinoless double beta decay in 136Xe using a gaseous xenon TPC with electroluminescent amplification and specialized photodetector arrays for
The Physics of Massive Neutrinos
In this talk I review the present status of neutrino masses and mixing and some of their implications for particle physics phenomenology.
