Title: Search for neutrinoless β + EC decay of Te 120 with CUORE-0

Here, we have performed a search for neutrinoless $$\beta^{+}\hspace{-0.2em}EC$$ decay of $$^{120}$$Te using the final CUORE-0 data release. We describe a new analysis method for the simultaneous fit of signatures with different event topology, and of data subsets with different signal efficiency, obtaining a limit on the half-life of the decay of $$T_{1/2}>1.6\cdot10^{21}$$ yr at $$90\%$$ CI. Combining this with results from Cuoricino, a predecessor experiment, we obtain the strongest limit to date, corresponding to $$T_{1/2}>2.7\cdot10^{21}$$ yr at $$90\%$$ CI.
