Show with the aid of a Feynman diagram that neutrinoless double beta decay, OuBB, can only occur if neutrino is a Majorana particle with non-zero mass. these include scenarios where lepton number is broken not universally but only for specific flavors. This has been proven by the so-called black box theorem [60–64] which states that the 0\nu \beta \beta diagram can always be inserted in an SM loop diagram giving rise to radiatively generated neutrino masses (see figure 4): thus if neutrinoless double beta decay is observed, a Majorana neutrino mass term is generated at four-loop order, even if the underlying particle physics model does not contain a tree-level neutrino mass. << /S /GoTo /D (subsection.5.1) >> The extended Higgs sector contains a bidoublet and two triplets {{\rm{\Delta }}}_{{\rm{L}}} and {{\rm{\Delta }}}_{{\rm{R}}}.

Using discrete symmetries one can avoid terms that lead to proton decay and is left with a superpotential including the LNV terms, where i,j,k are generation indices. One could thus gauge lepton number, and in order to avoid long range forces one would need to break the gauge symmetry, leading again typically to LNV. departures from simple ΛCDM models can weaken limits considerably.

To date, no neutrinoless double-beta decay has been observed, with limits on the lifetime (> 1025 yr) being longer than that for observed 2-neutrino decays.6 Draw a Feynman diagram for neutrinoless double-beta decay, as due to the decay of two d-quarks. This process assumes a simple form; namely, The Feynman diagram of the process, written in terms of the particles we know today and of massive Majorana neutrinos, is given Figure 1. Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay Neutrinoless double beta decay (0νββ) is a very slow lepton-number-violating nuclear transition that occurs if neutrinos have mass (and oscillation experiments tell us they do), and are their own antiparticles, i.e. If the decay is mediated by particles heavier than the characteristic momentum scale of q\simeq 100\;{\rm{MeV}}, then the corresponding amplitude is c/{M}^{5}, where M is the mass of those particles and c a combination of flavor and possible gauge coupling parameters.

Why is it important to look for LNV? /Length 975 To this day, it has not been found. This does not mean, however, that neutrinoless double beta decay and the question whether the neutrino possesses a Majorana mass are totally decoupled: the observation of neutrinoless double beta decay demonstrates that lepton number is violated by two units. Quark-antiquark production. Moreover, GUTs usually implement a seesaw mechanism and thus Majorana neutrinos, leading eventually to, almost all mechanisms that generate and suppress neutrino masses result in Majorana neutrinos and thus eventually induce, all theories beyond the SM that violate lepton number by one or two units lead to neutrinoless double beta decay. One example are popular flavor symmetry models to explain the peculiar features of lepton mixing [48, 49]. << We have found new supersymmetric contributions to this process and give the complete set of relevant Feynman diagrams. (Introduction) Both the standard long-range light neutrino mechanism as well as short-range mechanisms mediated by heavy particles are discussed. Since the Higgs triplet can mediate \mu \to 3e at tree level there are strong constraints on this diagram by lepton flavor violation bounds [80]. When one takes into account that the SUSY partners of the left- and right-handed quark states can mix with each other, new diagrams appear in which the neutrino-mediated double beta decay is triggered by SUSY exchange in the vertices [90–92], see figure 8 and note that this is a long-range diagram. endobj endobj ",#(7),01444'9=82.

Understanding and mitigating background radiation is especially important in searches for very rare nuclear processes, which utilize sensitive detectors. endobj A minimal higher-dimensional model implementing LNV compactifies a five-dimensional theory on an {S}^{1}/{Z}_{2} orbifold, and adds a single (bulk) sterile neutrino to the field content of the SM [103]. Due to the discrete left–right symmetry this term is directly proportional to the heavy neutrino mass matrix, hence V in equation (20) equals the PMNS matrix U and {m}_{i}\propto {M}_{i}. The conventional mechanism is based on the exchange of a massive Majorana neutrino between the two decaying neutrons. Depending on the model, the neutrino masses generated in this way can lead to a comparable, sub-dominant or dominant neutrino contribution to the decay, and/or to a main, sub-leading or negligible contribution to neutrino mass.
