Description

The EXO collaboration continues to search for the neutrinoless double beta decay of 136Xe. Discovery of this process would lead to a new understanding of neutrino properties and provide a first measurement of the neutrino mass scale. The collaboration is currently operating a 200 kg liquid xenon time projection chamber, EXO-200, at WIPP in New Mexico. A detailed description of the experiment will be provided along with the latest results from EXO-200. Efforts are also underway to develop a 5-tonne scale detector. Details of this project will be presented in the context of the longer-term efforts to understand and measure properties of the neutrinos.
