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 Mo100 and Se82 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 are derived. The data are also interpreted in terms of alternative models, such as weak right-handed currents or Majoron emission. In addition, NEMO 3 has performed precision measurements of the two-neutrino double beta decay for seven different isotopes. The most recent experimental results of NEMO3 are presented in this paper.
