Abstract

We report the results of an experimental search for neutrinoless double- decay using isotopically enriched foils of Mo100 interleaved in a stack of 40 silicon detectors. With an exposure of 69.9 mole days, we place lower half-life limits on the JP=0+'0+ transition of 4×1021 yr (68% C.L.) and on the 0+'2+ transition of 4×1020 yr (68% C.L.).
