  • The aim is to use the detector to try to observe a theoretical atomic event called neutrinoless double-beta decay - a radioactive process whereby an atomic nucleus releases two electrons and no neutrinos.

  • The committee recommends that the properties of neutrinos be determined through a well-coordinated, staged program of experiments developed with international planning and cooperation. • A phased program of searches for the nature of neutrino mass (using neutrinoless double beta decay) should be pursued with high priority. • DOE and NSF should invite international partners to initiate a multiparty study to explore the feasibility of joint rather than parallel efforts in accelerator-based neutrino experiments.

    The Future, By Committee

  • In FY 2010 DOE's Office of Nuclear Physicsallocated $20 million over the next four years to the Majorana Demonstrator Project, which is aimed at capturing neutrinoless double beta decay events.

  • "If we are able to measure the rate of neutrinoless double decay, we can infer the absolute mass of the neutrino," said deputy project manager, Dick Kouzes.

  • CUORE scientists will wait for neutrinoless double-beta decay to happen in a 750-kilogram cube of tellurium dioxide placed under 1,400 metres of rock at the Gran Sasso laboratory.

  • With the help of a 60-kilogram array of ultrapure germanium-76 detectors housed deep underground where external background sources are at a minimum, the collaborators hope to observe the handful of neutrinoless double beta decay events taking place each year.

  • They will be looking for a characteristic spectrum to emerge from the detectors when a neutrinoless double beta decay is detected - "like a rounded curve with a bump at the end on top of background noise" is how Kouzes put it.
