  What is KATRIN's result or status about the neutrino mass measurement?

+ 1 like - 0 dislike

Is there any result on the mass of the neutrino? 

Are they measuring at all?

Or is the system broken?

It should be measuring now - but there are no news on their website, no details - what is the matter with the experiment?

Indeed, https://arxiv.org/abs/1906.10168 gives the status of the experiment in mid 2019. KATRIN is taking measurements, but a first result date has not been set.

The previous generation of tritium beta decay experiments, located at Troitsk and at Mainz, set a limit on the antineutrino mass at < 2eV at 90%.
