VIRTUAL INPA SEMINAR – Micah Buuck (SLAC)

June 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Speaker: Micah Buuck (SLAC)

Title: Neurtrinoless Double-Beta Decay and Radioactive Backgrounds in the MAJORANA DEMONSTRATOR

Abstract: Neutrinoless double-beta decay (0νββ) is a lepton-number-violating process whose existence would indicate that neutrinos are Majorana fermions. The MAJORANA collaboration is searching for 0νββ in germanium-76 using a modular array of high-purity germanium detectors, housed at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, South Dakota. This presentation will show the results of an in-depth study of the backgrounds visible to the array, and the details behind a model to explain their sources.
