Present Status and Future Perspectives of the NEXT Experiment Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • NEXT is an experiment dedicated to neutrinoless double beta decay searches in xenon. The detector is a TPC, holding 100kg of high-pressure xenon enriched in the136Xe isotope. It is under construction in the Laboratorio Subterrneo de Canfranc in Spain, and it will begin operations in 2015. The NEXT detector concept provides an energy resolutionbetter than 1% FWHM and a topological signal that can be used to reduce the background. Furthermore, the NEXT technology can be extrapolated to a 1 ton-scale experiment.
