Results on $\beta\beta$ decay with emission of two neutrinos or Majorons in $^{76}$Ge from GERDA Phase I


GERDA Collaboration; Agostini, M; Allardt, M; Andreotti, E; Baudis, L; Benato, G; Walter, M; et al (2015). Results on $\beta\beta$ decay with emission of two neutrinos or Majorons in $^{76}$Ge from GERDA Phase I. European Physical Journal C - Particles and Fields, 75:416.

Abstract

A search for neutrinoless $\beta\beta$ decay processes accompanied with Majoron emission has been performed using data collected during Phase I of the GERmanium Detector Array (GERDA) experiment at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso of INFN (Italy). Processes with spectral indices n = 1, 2, 3, 7 were searched for. No signals were found and lower limits of the order of 10$^{23}$ yr on their half-lives were derived, yielding substantially improved results compared to previous experiments with $^{76}$Ge. A new result for the half-life of the neutrino-accompanied $\beta\beta$ decay of $^{76}$Ge with significantly reduced uncertainties is also given, resulting in $T^{2\nu}_{1/2} = (1.926 \pm 0.095)\cdot10^{21}$ yr.
