Description

SuperNEMO is a next generation neutrinoless double beta decay experiment currently in development, which will probe the inverted hierarchy neutrino mass region. The detector will consist of a double beta emitting foil of Se82 or Nd150 surrounded by a tracking chamber and calorimetry, which allows measurement of electron angular correlations and individual energies. These signatures can be used to identify the underlying mechanism of neutrinoless double beta decay. SuperNEMO sensitivity to both the mass mechanism and right handed currents are examined in the cases of limit setting or discovery.
