Title: Results of the double beta decay experiment NEMO-3

The double beta decay experiment NEMO-3 has taken data from February 2003 to January 2011. The two-neutrino decay half lives were measured for seven different isotopes ({sup 100}Mo, {sup 82}Se, {sup 116}Cd, {sup 150}Nd, {sup 96}Zr, {sup 48}Ca and {sup 130}Te). No evidence for neutrinoless double beta decay is observed. The 0νββ half-life limits are found to be T{sub 1/2}{sup 0ν}({sup 100}Mo)>1.0×10{sup 24}yr(90%C.L.) and T{sub 1/2}{sup 0ν}({sup 82}Se)>3.2×10{sup 23}yr(90%C.L.)
