The nemo-3 experiment and the supernemo project

Abstract : The NEMO experiment is investigating the neutrinoless double beta decay. The NEMO-3 detector is taking data in the Frejus Underground Laboratory. The goal of the SuperNEMO detector is to reach a sensitivity on the order of 10^26 year on the half-life of the ββ0ν process. The chosen isotopes for the future detector are ^82Se and ^150Nd, because of the reduced background. The collaboration has started a 3-year R& D developpement on all components : tracking detector, calorimeter, source enrichment and purification, radiopurity measurements.
