Nuclear Reactions for Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay (NURE)

Start date: 01 Apr 2017, End date: 31 Mar 2022,

Neutrinoless double beta decay (0νββ) is considered the best potential resource to determine the absolute neutrino mass scale. Moreover, if observed, it will signal that the total lepton number is not conserved and neutrinos are Majorana particles. Presently, this physics case is one of the most important research “beyond the Standard Model” and might guide the way towards a Grand Unified Theory o ...

Enhanced NeUtrino BEams from kaon Tagging (ENUBET)

Start date: 01 Jun 2016, End date: 31 May 2021,

ENUBET has been designed to open a new window of opportunities in accelerator neutrino physics. The proposed project enables for the first time the measurement of the positrons produced in the decay tunnel of conventional neutrino beams: these particles signal uniquely the generation of an electron neutrino at source. Neutrino facilities enhanced by the ENUBET technique will have an unprecedented ...

Start date: 01 Jul 2015, End date: 30 Jun 2020,

How does the inside of the proton look like? What generates its spin?
3DSPIN will deliver essential information to answer these questions at the frontier of subnuclear physics.At present, we have detailed maps of the distribution of quarks and gluons in the nucleon in 1D (as a function of their momentum in a single direction). We also know that quark spins account for only about 1/3 of the spin of ...

NEUTRINOS and DARK MATTER (DM) are the most abundant and also the most elusive building-blocks of nature because of their tenuous couplings to the ordinary matter we are made of. Each particle has a mirror image with identical mass and opposite charge: its antiparticle. What is the essential nature of particles and antiparticles? This is a most fundamental open question in science. The laws of phy ...
