A Search for Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay using Mo-100, AMoRE
The AMoRE (Advanced Mo-based Rare Process Experiment) is an experimental search for neutrinoless double beta decay of 100Mo using calcium molybdate (CaMoO4) scintillating crystals. The AMoRE uses a cryogenic detection technique using CaMoO4 crystals, which provide excellent energy resolution (<10keV). The experiment planed to be operated at the underground laboratory and is aiming to reach zero-background level. The pilot experiment is ongoing at the YangYang underground laboratory and the first phase experiment, using 5 kg of CaMoO4 (AMoRE-10), is planned to start this year. Current status of the AMoRE experiment will be presented.
