Abstract [en]

We calculate the coherent bremsstrahlung process nu + N -> N + nu + gamma off a nucleus H with the aim of revealing the neutrino mass via the photon endpoint spectrum. Unfortunately, the large required power of a monochromatic neutrino source and/or large detector mass make it difficult to compete with traditional electron-spectrum endpoint measurements in nuclear beta decay. Our neutral-current process distinguishes between Dirac and Majorana neutrinos, but the change of the photon spectrum is of the order of m(nu)/E-nu and thus very small, despite the final-state neutrino coming to rest at the photon endpoint. So the "Dirac-Majorana confusion theorem" remains intact even if E-nu >> m(nu) my applies only for the initial state.
