Experimental search of neutrinoless double-beta decay in 130Te

Oliviero Cremonesi (INFN - Milano Bicocca, Italy)




130Te is one of the best candidates for the experimental search of neutrinoless double-beta decay. 

Thanks to its exceptionally large natural isotopic abundance 130Te represents the only isotope for which the use of isotopic enrichment is practically not indispensable. Furthermore pure tellurium metal can be procured in large amounts and radio-pure crystals of tellurium compounds are commercially available. Different experimental techniques has been envisaged and a number of tellurium based experiments have been proposed and are starting taking data or are in advanced phase of construction.

We will focus on the status of current experiments, the factors characterizing their sensitivity and thier role in the international competition. We will then discuss future prospects and requirements.
