As mentioned already in the last section, while 0\nu \beta \beta decay provides the best possibility to search for light massive Majorana neutrinos, LNV as featured in the short-range contributions can in general be probed also in collider processes. Fakultät für Physik, Technische Universität Dortmund, D-44221 Dortmund, Germany, 2 The particle physics parameter , which depends on particle masses, mixing parameters etc, is most important from the point of view of this review. We reanalyze the contributions to neutrinoless double beta ($\znbb$) decay from supersymmetry with explicit breaking of R-parity. Comparable bounds can be deduced from B and K physics which depend however on different superpartner masses and are thus complementary to the bounds derived here [93].

In fact, this process is the only known possibility to ascertain in the foreseeable future whether the neutrino is a Dirac or a Majorana particle.

Moreover, GUTs usually implement a seesaw mechanism and thus Majorana neutrinos, leading eventually to, almost all mechanisms that generate and suppress neutrino masses result in Majorana neutrinos and thus eventually induce, all theories beyond the SM that violate lepton number by one or two units lead to neutrinoless double beta decay. (Neutrinos and beta decay) Apart from the standard interpretation where a massive Majorana neutrino is being exchanged between SM V − A vertices, in principle any operator converting two d-quarks into two u quarks, two electrons and nothing else and thereby violating lepton number by two units will trigger the decay. As has been pointed out above any observation of the short-range contribution d) will typically involve TeV scale particles and thus may be probed in the search for LNV interactions at the LHC. �"9Qi������*C\u����� & @ Z t � � � � �.Id���� %A^z���� &Ca~����1Om����&Ed����#Cc����'Ij����4Vx���&Il����Ae����@e���� Ek���*Qw���;c���*R{���Gp���@j���>i��� A l � � �! endobj It is easy to see that this argument can be extended even further (for further details see [108, 109]). While the three neutrino paradigm is very attractive and robust, there are longstanding hints that light sterile neutrinos with mass around an eV and mixing around 10% exist, see [55] for a review of the various hints and ongoing as well as future tests. Feynman diagrams for the leading diagrams of neutrinoless double beta decay in left–right symmetric theories: heavy neutrino exchange with right-handed currents, triplet exchange, the λ- and the η-diagram (from left to right). /Filter /DCTDecode To make these new gauge bosons and interactions compatible with experimental constraints, they have to be sufficiently heavy and weak, respectively, resulting from a sufficiently large vev vR. 52 0 obj For details, see text (from [108]). Adapted from [39]. Thus baryon number violation typically implies LNV. In turn, no sign of LNV at the LHC would exclude an observation of 0\nu \beta \beta decay, or 0\nu \beta \beta decay would have to be triggered by a long-range mechanism. << Thus—generally and with some exceptions—one can conclude that either an observation of 0\nu \beta \beta decay would imply an LNVsignal at the LHC as well. (3a). Within the well-motivated three Majorana neutrino paradigm the upper and lower value of the effective mass in the inverted ordering are the natural medium-term goal for neutrinoless double beta decay searches.

Topics that are not covered in this review are the experimental and nuclear physics aspects, where the interested reader should consult e.g. Neutrino mass observables within the standard three neutrino paradigm for best-fit and 3\sigma oscillation parameters from [29]. It follows [85] that typically for a normal mass ordering the lifetime of double beta decay is finite while for an inverted mass ordering it can be infinite due to possible cancellations.

Overview Experimental groups worldwide are working to develop detectors that may allow the observation of neutrinoless double-beta decay. that another mechanism causes the decay. /BitsPerComponent 8 17 115010, 1 The coupling parameters of the corresponding effective long-range operators can be written as. As can be seen in the gures, this decay violates lepton number conservation. %���� If the neutrino is a Majorana neutrino, then we can connect the two external neutrino legs to form Figure 4(b). Gluon self-energy. This in turn will falsify standard thermal leptogenesis and in general any high-scale scenario of baryogenesis. This leads to a nuclear matrix element depending on the Kaluza–Klein neutrino masses {m}_{(n)}, and thus to predictions for the double beta decay observable that depend on the double beta emitter isotope used in the experiment. BibTeX Therefore, the complementarity of the various approaches to determine the neutrino mass offers exciting possibilities, since different assumptions enter their interpretation. Obviously many diagrams can contribute at the same time and interference between the different diagrams can arise. Of course, in case one has a model at hand, one can predict | {m}_{{ee}}| to some extent. To this day, it has not been found. What is the current limit on the effective mass? (N 2;Z+ 2) + e + e . The leading-order Feynman diagrams for electron capture decay. The upper bound on the neutrinoless double beta decay lifetime would then give new constraints on the ratio of the masses of these scalars to their couplings to the fermions. From the lower limit on the 0\nu \beta \beta lifetime, bounds on effective couplings can be derived [100] which are typically of order. � SuperNEMO Figure 7. While the neutrino mass itself cannot be predicted in this framework, relations between neutrino masses are possible to predict, so-called neutrino mass sum-rules such as {\tilde{m}}_{1}+{\tilde{m}}_{2}={\tilde{m}}_{3}. � Neutrinoless double beta decay, corresponding to the simultaneous transition of two neutrons into two protons and two electrons, without associated production of any neutrinos, is the most sensitive experimental probe for lepton number violation. Taking correctly the conservative values, both isotopes give essentially the same limit of7. Such a decomposition has been worked out in [106] where two different possible topologies have been identified. The decay width of double beta decay for a single operator inducing the decay can always be written as, where G(Q,Z) is a calculable phase space factor typically scaling with the endpoint energy as Q5 and {\mathcal{M}} is the nuclear matrix element, which is notoriously difficult to calculate. i.e. Figure 2. ?a?�?�@#@d@�@�A)AjA�A�B0BrB�B�C:C}C�DDGD�D�EEUE�E�F"FgF�F�G5G{G�HHKH�H�IIcI�I�J7J}J�KKSK�K�L*LrL�MMJM�M�N%NnN�O OIO�O�P'PqP�QQPQ�Q�R1R|R�SS_S�S�TBT�T�U(UuU�VV\V�V�WDW�W�X/X}X�YYiY�ZZVZ�Z�[E[�[�\5\�\�]']x]�^^l^�__a_�``W`�`�aOa�a�bIb�b�cCc�c�d@d�d�e=e�e�f=f�f�g=g�g�h?h�h�iCi�i�jHj�j�kOk�k�lWl�mm`m�nnkn�ooxo�p+p�p�q:q�q�rKr�ss]s�ttpt�u(u�u�v>v�v�wVw�xxnx�y*y�y�zFz�{{c{�|!|�|�}A}�~~b~�#��G��� See also. endobj A Feynman diagram represents all possible time orderings of the possible vertices, so the positions of the vertices within the graph are arbitrary.

Cosmology probes the sum of neutrino masses, Kurie-plot experiments test the incoherent sum, whereas neutrinoless double beta decay in the standard interpretation tests the quantity (see figure 1). Moreover, because of the presence of right-handed currents, the exchange of light neutrinos does not necessarily require a chirality violating mass insertion. including the Majorana phases.

It is important to note that for the normal mass ordering the effective mass can vanish, whereas for the inverted ordering the effective mass cannot vanish [34]. Neutrinoless double beta decay, 0 , presents the best and perhaps the only, way to detect Majorana neutrinos. Neutrinoless double beta (/3/3o~) decay is a AL = 2 process and therefore one naturally expects it to occur in models with lepton number violation in the Lagrangian. � Ph 406: Elementary Particle Physics Problem Set 9 K.T. One possible probe to physics beyond the standard model is to look for scalar bilinears, which couple to two fermions of the standard model.

Most neutrino physicists believe that neutrinoless double beta decay has never been observed. Such theories necessarily predict right-handed neutrinos which are included in an SU(2)R doublet as a consequence of the left–right symmetry. endobj 2. i.e. A similarly strong limit is obtained by the KamLAND-Zen experiment [3], namely {T}_{1/2}^{{\rm{Xe}}}\gt 2.6\times {10}^{25} yrs. 59 0 obj There is about a dozen confirmed cases of nuclei that can only decay via double beta decay. As demonstrated previously, the effect of the color-mismatch arising from loops with gluons linking the quarks from different color-singlet currents participating in the effective operators has a dramatic impact on the predictions for some particular Wilson coefficients. The experimental search for this decay is extremely challenging, with the best current half-life limits of >10 26 yr. The diagram governed by {\varepsilon }_{V+A}^{V+A} is often called the λ-diagram, the one governed by {\varepsilon }_{V-A}^{V+A} the η-diagram. Neutrinoless double beta decay (0νββ) has long been recognized as a sensitive probe of the new physics beyond the standard model (SM) (see [1]- [2]). We consider not only the standard three neutrino paradigm, but also different frameworks, including situations associated with heavy particle exchange, so-called short range mechanisms. Figure 1.

The result was that the LHC is typically more sensitive than 0\nu \beta \beta decay for short-range contributions, with the exception of leptoquark exchange. 36 0 obj However, it is very model-dependent as many mechanisms apart from the standard neutrino mass mechanism can mediate the decay. Since the Higgs triplet can mediate \mu \to 3e at tree level there are strong constraints on this diagram by lepton flavor violation bounds [80]. Feynman diagrams, from left to right: Neutrinoless double beta decay mediated by a massive Majorana neutrino, neutrinoless double beta decay mediated by superpartners, and single slepton production at the LHC. in section 5. Thus such extra-dimensional scenarios constitute a special case which cannot be categorized into the simple classes of contributions introduced in the effective operator parametrization described above. While the mixing S is small in the simplest seesaw scenarios, one can easily arrange for large left–right (or equivalently light-heavy) mixing. We review the potential to probe new physics with neutrinoless double beta decay Both the standard long-range light neutrino mechanism as well as non-standard long-range and short-range mechanisms mediated by heavy particles are discussed. j The necessary low radiation environment needed to search for such rare nuclear processes is provided by deep underground laboratories. In addition 0\nu \beta \beta decay is also sensitive to other combinations of the couplings {\lambda }_{{ijk}}^{\prime }. We close the discussion on left–right symmetry by noting that several LHC anomalies at 2 TeV can be explained by a WR of this mass mixing with the SM W [86]. See also [40] for an approach to combine different experiments in a statistical manner. Combining the half-life limit [4] with the corrected numerical values [12] of the nuclear matrix elements first calculated in [89] leads to the limit on {\lambda }_{111}^{\prime } given by. Figure 5 displays the decomposition of the general decay amplitude into the standard interpretation (contribution (a) with a light Majorana neutrino being exchanged between two SM weak interaction vertices), contribution (b) with a light Majorana neutrino being exchanged between one effective operator vertex and an SM weak interaction vertex, contribution (c), which contains two non-SM vertices and can be neglected when compared to contribution (b), and contribution (d) with a single point-like dimension nine operator [67, 68]. Recently, the lepton non-universality anomaly at LHCb [94] and the CMS anomaly in the search for right-handed W bosons have been explained within R-parity violating SUSY with {\lambda }_{113}^{\prime }={\mathcal{O}}({10}^{-3}-{10}^{-2}) and {\lambda }_{112}^{\prime }={\mathcal{O}}({10}^{-1}) and scalar masses in the TeV range [95].
