43 May 2005UK Forum Dark Matter, RAL Summary A lot of proposals and R&D projects among them is COBRA using CdZnTe semiconductors Double beta decay is the gold plated channel to probe the fundamental character of neutrinos Taking current evidences from oscillation data it is likely to be the only way to fix the absolute neutrino mass However, there is a hotly discussed evidence by the Heidelberg group, which would imply almost degenerate neutrinos To go below 50 meV requires hundreds of kilograms of enriched material
