Search for a bosonic component in the neutrino wave function


Journal Article

Recently, Dolgov and Smirnov speculated that neutrinos may not obey the principle named after their inventor, the Pauli Principle. The neutrino wave function may contain a bosonic component. In principle, two-neutrino double-beta (2ν2β) decay data could be used to check on the conjecture that neutrinos violate the Pauli Principle. Recent 2ν2β data on 100Mo to both the ground state and excited states in 100Ru will be used to illustrate the procedure. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
