KamLAND-Zen searches for a possible conversion of anti-matter (anti-neutrino) to matter (neutrino) in a very rare prcoess called neutrinoless double beta decays. It introduces Xenon-136 gas into the sensitive detector volume of the world’s largest liquid scintillator detector KamLAND (hence the name KamLAND-Zen).
