Abstract

The neutrino mass is a fundamental parameter of the Standard Model and the measurement of its value is one of the most compelling issues in particle physics. HOLMES is an experiment set up at the University of Milano-Bicocca aiming at performing a direct measurement of the neutrino mass from the Electron Capture (EC) decay of 163Ho. HOLMES will use low-temperature calorimeters, avoiding the typical systematics of spectrometers arising from the use of any external source, in order to precisely measure the energy of the electrons emitted in the EC decay. In this contribution we outline the steps which will lead to the HOLMES measurement of the neutrino mass.
