Description

NEXT is an experiment to search for the hypotetical double-beta decay without neutrinos of 136Xe nuclei in a high pressure gas TPC. A prototype detector, NEXT-NEW, has been operated at Canfranc Underground Laboratory during 2016. We present the first results and the future prospects of NEXT.
