Title: Results on $$\beta \beta $$ decay with emission of two neutrinos or Majorons in $$^{76}$$ Ge from GERDA Phase I: GERDA Collaboration

Abstract

A search for neutrinoless ββ decay processes accompanied with Majoron emission has been performed using data collected during Phase I of the GERmanium Detector Array (GERDA) experiment at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso of INFN (Italy). Processes with spectral indices n = 1,2,3,7 were searched for. No signals were found and lower limits of the order of 10 23 yr on their half-lives were derived, yielding substantially improved results compared to previous experiments with 76Ge. A new result for the half-life of the neutrino-accompanied ββ decay of 76Ge with significantly reduced uncertainties is also given, resulting in T 1/2 = (1.926 ± 0.094) × 10 21 yr.
