Results from the NEMO 3 experiment
The aim of the NEMO 3 experiment
is the search for neutrinoless double beta decay
and precise measurement of two-neutrino double beta decay
of several isotopes.
The experiment has been taking data since 2003.
Since no evidence for neutrinoless double beta decay
of 100Mo and 82Se has been found,
a 90% C.L. lower limit on the half-life of this process
and corresponding upper limit
on the effective Majorana neutrino mass
The data are also interpreted in terms of alternative models,
such as weak right-handed currents or Majoron emission.
NEMO 3 has performed precision measurements of
the two-neutrino double beta decay for seven different isotopes.
The most recent experimental results of NEMO 3 are presented in this paper.
