Description

GERDA is performing a background-free search for neutrinoless double-beta decay of Ge-76. An observation of this nuclear transition would unambiguously prove that neutrinos are Majorana particles and that the lepton number is violated. Thanks to a factor two increase in statistics, the experimental sensitivity doubled compared to the last data release making GERDA the first experiment exploring neutrinoless double beta decay half-lives at the order of 1e26 years. First results and prospects of this pioneering exploration will be presented.
