### Measurement of the Double Beta Decay Half-life of 130Te with the NEMO-3 Detector

10 mai 2011

This Letter reports results from the NEMO-3 experiment based on an exposure of 1275 days with 661g of 130Te in the form of enriched and natural tellurium foils. With this data set the double beta decay rate of 130Te is found to be non-zero with a significance of 7.7 standard deviations and the (...)

### Measurement of the beta-nu correlation coefficient a(beta nu) in the beta decay of trapped He-6(+) ions

30 mars 2011

We have measured the β-ν angular correlation in the β decay of 6He+ ions using a transparent Paul trap. The 6He+ ions, produced at GANIL, were first cooled and bunched before being injected in the LPCTrap setup. The angular correlation was inferred from the time of flight of recoil nuclei detected (...)

### New approach of fragment charge correlations in $^129$Xe+$^nat$Sn central collisions

20 mars 2007

A previous analysis of the charge (Z) correlations in the $\Delta Z-$ plane for Xe+Sn central collisions at 32 MeV/u has shown an enhancement in the production of equally sized fragments (low $\Delta Z$) which was interpreted as an evidence for spinodal decomposition. However the signal is weak (...)
