Description

The EXO-200 experiment consists of a time projection chamber filled with ~150 kg of liquid xenon enriched at 80.7% of the 136Xe isotope. The low background level reached within the detector made possible the detection of the two neutrinos double decay of 136Xe, set the most precise measurement of a double beta decay half life to date and provided one of the most sensitive search for the neutrinoless double beta decay. After a brief hiatus in operations, the experiment restarted data taking with upgrades to its front-end electronics and a Rn suppression system. This presentation will cover the recent results of the EXO-200 collaboration published last year, which include the first two years of data with the detector in its first phase and one year of data taken with the upgraded detector.
