Description

We introduce the possibility of determining the neutrino mass scale from monitoring the decays of a crystalised beam. Through the careful control of the beam momentum, one can perform a 'cut' on the electron spectrum with only electrons near the endpoint traveling backwards in the laboratory frame. The idea is introduced with the results from preliminary simulations presented.
