Abstract

Using 36.55 g of 150Nd sample and 1648 days of data taken by the NEMO- 3 experiment, the two neutrino double beta decay half-life of 150Nd is measured to beT = (8.95+0.28-0.26(stat) ± 0.50(sys)) × 10^18years A study of the background events and the application of a laser calibration system of energy measurements was made.
