Direct neutrino mass measurement in the Project8 experiment
January 24, 2017
Project 8 proposes to be the next generation direct neutrino mass measurement after KATRIN. Like KATRIN, Project 8 is a tritium endpoint experiment that looks for the effect of neutrino mass on a precisely measured tritium beta decay electron spectrum. Electron spectroscopy in Project 8 is done by Cyclotron Radiation Emission Spectroscopy (CRES). The concept of CRES is reviewed with recent results from a prototype instrument demonstration. A plan for a phased approach to develop Project 8 into an experiment with sensitivitiy to neutrino masses allowed by the inverted mass hierarchy is also presented.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
