Physics Colloquium

"Current Status of Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay Research"

Presented by Bob McKeown, Jefferson Lab

Tuesday, April 25, 2017, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The observation of neutrinoless double beta decay would establish that neutrinos are Majorana fermions and would represent a discovery of profound importance: that lepton number is not conserved. There is currently a worldwide effort to search for neutrinoless double beta decay, using a variety of candidate isotopes and detector technologies. A subcommittee of the Nuclear Science Advisory Committee (NSAC) recently surveyed the field and the associated research and development needs. Based on the information provided to this subcommittee, I will present an overview of the present activity in this field and the prospects for the future.
