Title“Probing the Nature of Neutrino Mass”
AbstractThe discovery of neutrino oscillation has shown that neutrinos have non-zero mass but the nature of neutrino mass and the absolute mass scale remain unknown. Neutrinoless double beta decay (0νββ) is uniquely suited to probe the Majorana nature of neutrinos and determine the effective neutrino mass. CUORE, the Cryogenic Underground Observatory for Rare Events (CUORE) and its upgrade CUPID aim to search for 0νββ down to the level of the inverted mass ordering using the world’s largest bolometric detector. Project 8 is a novel approach to make a direct measurement of the absolute neutrino mass using cyclotron radiation emission spectroscopy. In this talk. I will present the latest results from CUORE, the plans for CUPID, and the prospect for measuring the neutrino mass with Project 8.
