introduction Nach dem Vorschlag von W. Pauli kann man z.B. annehmen, das beim β-Zerfall nicht nur ein Elektron, sondern auch ein neues Teilchen, das sogenannte "Neutrino" (Masse von der Grossenordnung oder kleiner als die Elektronenmasse; keine elektrische Ladung) emittiert wird. E. Fermi, Z. Physik 88, 161 (1934) … so what? neutrino has a mass! In 1934, Enrico Fermi proposed a model of beta decay assuming the existence of the neutrino and treating the whole process in a similar way to the photon emission from atoms. It is to be mentioned that the existence of neutrino was previously suggested by Pauli as a way to preserve the principle of conservation of energy in the beta decay.

introduction Dear radioactive ladies and gentlemen,
[…] I have hit upon a desperate remedy to save the "exchange theorem" of statistics and the energy theorem. [… ] there could exist in the nuclei electrically neutral particles that I wish to call neutrons, which have spin 1/2 and obey the exclusion principle, and additionally differ from light quanta in that they do not travel with the velocity of light. The mass of the neutron must be of the same order of magnitude as the electron mass and, in any case, not larger than 0.01 proton mass. The continuous ß-spectrum would then become understandable [...] But I don't feel secure enough to publish anything about this idea […] However, only those who wager can win, and the seriousness of the situation of the continuous ß-spectrum can be made clear by the saying of my honored predecessor in office, Mr. Debye, [...] "One does best not to think about that at all, like the new taxes." Seventh Solvay Conference on Physics, Brussels 1933 In 1934, Enrico Fermi proposed a model of beta decay assuming the existence of the neutrino and treating the whole process in a similar way to the photon emission from atoms. It is to be mentioned that the existence of neutrino was previously suggested by Pauli as a way to preserve the principle of conservation of energy in the beta decay.

introduction Cosmic Gall NEUTRINOS, they are very small.
They have no charge and have no mass And do not interact at all. The earth is just a silly ball To them, through which they simply pass, Like dustmaids down a drafty hall Or photons through a sheet of glass. They snub the most exquisite gas, Ignore the most substantial wall, Cold shoulder steel and sounding brass, Insult the stallion in his stall, And scorning barriers of class, Infiltrate you and me! Like tall and painless guillotines, they fall Down through our heads into the grass. At night, they enter at Nepal and pierce the lover and his lass From underneath the bed-you call It wonderful; I call it crass. John Updike Telephone Poles and Other Poems, Knopf 1960 neutrinos have no mass (only charged leptons obtain an effective mass through interaction with the Higgs field) In 1934, Enrico Fermi proposed a model of beta decay assuming the existence of the neutrino and treating the whole process in a similar way to the photon emission from atoms. It is to be mentioned that the existence of neutrino was previously suggested by Pauli as a way to preserve the principle of conservation of energy in the beta decay. no mixing of the different generations of charged leptons (as there is for quarks)

neutrino mass challenge
neutrino oscillation (predicted by Bruno Pontecorvo) a neutrino created with a specific lepton flavor can later be measured to have a different flavor the probability of measuring a particular flavor for a neutrino varies periodically as it propagates experimental proofs solar neutrino oscillation deficit in the flux of solar neutrinos with respect to the prediction of the Standard Solar Model first detected by Homestake Experiment (run from 1970 until 1994): clear evidence of neutrino flavor change provided by Sudbury Neutrino Observatory in 2001 atmospheric neutrino oscillation observed deficit in the ratio of the flux of muon to electron flavor atmospheric neutrinos (IMB, MACRO, Kamiokande). reactor neutrino oscillation oscillation of electron anti-neutrinos produced at nuclear reactors (KamLAND Double Chooz, RENO, Daya Bay) In 1934, Enrico Fermi proposed a model of beta decay assuming the existence of the neutrino and treating the whole process in a similar way to the photon emission from atoms. It is to be mentioned that the existence of neutrino was previously suggested by Pauli as a way to preserve the principle of conservation of energy in the beta decay. beam neutrino oscillation the same neutrino oscillations which take place in atmospheric neutrino oscillation, using neutrinos with a few GeV of energy and several hundred km baselines ex: the INFN and CERN observed (May 2010) a tau particle in a muon neutrino beam in the OPERA detector (LNGS, Italy), 730 km away from the neutrino source (CERN, Geneva)

critical questions for neutrino physics
neutrino challenges critical questions for neutrino physics what are the scale of neutrino masses? is there any degeneracy? which is the hierarchy of the neutrino mass ordering what is the neutrino mass/mixing matrix? why is it so different from quarks? do neutrinos violate the CP symmetry? contribution to the matter-antimatter asymmetry?

the double beta decay Characteristics: Energy Forbidden
Abstract From the Fermi theory of β-disintegration the probability of simultaneous emission of two electrons (and two neutrinos) has been calculated. The result is that this process occurs sufficiently rarely to allow a half-life of over 1017 years for a nucleus, even if its isobar of atomic number different by 2 were more stable by 20 times the electron mass. M. Goepert-Mayer Double beta-Disintegration, Phys.Rev. 48: (1935) Forbidden Energy Characteristics: Extremely rare decay, possible only in few isotopes in which single β decay is forbidden In 1934, Enrico Fermi proposed a model of beta decay assuming the existence of the neutrino and treating the whole process in a similar way to the photon emission from atoms. It is to be mentioned that the existence of neutrino was previously suggested by Pauli as a way to preserve the principle of conservation of energy in the beta decay.
