Exploring the nuclear structure of ⁷⁷Se via inelastic deuteron scattering
MetadataShow full item record
The weak process of nuclear double beta decay presents an opportunity to explore the nature of the neutrino as well as the conservation of lepton number. These studies perhaps provide one of the best avenues for investigating physical concepts beyond the Standard Model (BSM) of particle physics. One such study is the proposed neutrinoless double beta decay of 76Ge to 76Se. Studies into nearby systems can offer insight into the nature of this process. In particular, computation of the nuclear matrix elements (NMEs) is necessary to predict the half-life of this decay, which subsequently reveals ...
