Search for the violation of Pauli exclusion principle at LNGS

Abstract : In the VIP (VIolation of Pauli exclusion principle) and its follow-up VIP-2 experiments at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, we test the validity of the Pauli Exclusion Principle, by searching for x-rays from copper atomic transitions from a 2p orbit electron to the ground state which is already occupied by two electrons. Such transitions are prohibited by the Pauli Exclusion Principle. The physics run of the VIP-2 experiment started in late 2016 and will collect data for three years. From the first data taking period of two months we have obtained a new limit better than the VIP result from three years of running. In this article we present the published first physics result from the VIP-2 experiment and discuss about the future perspectives. © The Authors, published by EDP Sciences.
