A Data-Analysis and Sensitivity-Optimization Framework for the KATRIN Experiment

Kleesiek, Marco

Abstract:
Presently under construction, the Karlsruhe TRitium Neutrino (KATRIN) experiment is the next generation tritium beta-decay experiment to perform a direct kinematical measurement of the electron neutrino mass with an unprecedented sensitivity of 200 meV (90% C.L.). This thesis describes the implementation of a consistent data analysis framework, addressing technical aspects of the data taking process and statistical challenges of a neutrino mass estimation from the beta-decay electron spectrum.
