The Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino (KATRIN) experiment is the next generation tritium beta decay experiment with sub-eV sensitivity to make a direct, model independent measurement of the neutrino mass. The principle of the experiment is to look for a distortion at the high energy endpoint of the electron spectrum of tritium beta decay. KATRIN will reach a final sensitivity of 200 meV at 90% C.L. on the absolute neutrino mass scale.
