The NEMO experiment
Note: these pages are under construction!
The aim of the NEMO collaboration is to investigate neutrinoless double-beta decay. This research is one of the principal topics in neutrino physics, which is a subfield of particle physics with cosmological and astrophysical implications.
Double-beta decay experiments can play a particularly interesting role in providing the answers to questions on the nature of the neutrino. Of paramount importance is the identification of the neutrino as a Dirac particle or Majorana particle.
Here we propose an simple overview of our present understanding
of the subatomic world: the
Standard Model of Particle Physics. Then
we focus particularly on the neutrino.
Finally we present some generalities
beta decay and associated
