First results from the Majorana Demonstrator’s search for Neutrinoless Double-Beta Decay announced.

The Majorana Collaboration announced its first results from its search for Neutrinoless Double-Beta Decay (0vBB) at the APS meeting of the Division of Nuclear Physics in Pittsburgh, PA. The work, detailed in an article posted on the arXiv (https://arxiv.org/abs/1710.11608) and awaiting publication details the Demonstrator’s world-leading energy resolution among 0vBB experiments, and a background rate rivaled only by the GERDA Collaboration’s similar search for 0vBB in 76Ge.
