Title: The Quantum Nature and Mass of the Neutrino: FY19 Annual Laboratory Continuation Progress Report

Abstract

Over the last 100 years we have learned a much about the neutrino, but there remain interesting questions about this weakly interacting particle. In particular, at LLNL we are developing experiments to measure short baseline oscillation, the mass and the quantum nature of the neutrino, the latter two are within the scope of DOE-SC NP and are the subject of this report. The 2015 long range plan recommended tonne-scale neutrinoless double beta decay experiments as the top new project priority and this experiment will target the quantum nature of the neutrino. The LLNL team is motivated and focused on developing the best technology for this experiment which is a liquid xenon time project chamber called nEXO. On a longer time scale, LLNL is also developing technology to measure the neutrino mass with tritium decay experiments.
