{"DOI":"10.5281/zenodo.1300559","abstract":"GERDA searches for the neutrinoless double beta (0\u03bd\u03b2\u03b2) decay of 76-Ge. The observation of such a decay would prove the Majorana character of the neutrino and indicate the effective Majorana neutrino mass.\n\nThe half life of the neutrino accompanied double beta (2\u03bd\u03b2\u03b2) decay of 76-Ge into the ground state of 76-Se was measured by GERDA with unprecedented precision. Furthermore 76-Ge can decay into excited states of 76-Se, although these transitions are phase space suppressed. Theoretical predictions for the half lives of these transitions vary by several orders of magnitude since they depend on various nuclear models. The observation of the 2\u03bd\u03b2\u03b2 decay of 76-Ge into excited states would constrain these models and improve the models for the 0\u03bd\u03b2\u03b2 decay, which rely on similar assumptions.\n\nThe poster will present the analysis and preliminary results of GERDA Phase II on 2\u03bd\u03b2\u03b2 of 76-Ge into excited states.","author":[{"family":"SCHNEIDER","given":"Birgit"}],"id":"unknown","issued":{"date-parts":[[2018,6,29]]},"publisher":"Zenodo","title":"Double Beta Decay Of Ge-76 Into Excited States Of Se-76 In Gerda","type":"article-journal"}
