Drift Chamber Beta-ray Analyzer (DCBA) experiment is a double beta decay experiment that uses drift chambers as the detector of beta-rays. Two beta-rays are emitted from Mo-100 (or Nd-150 in future) contained in a thin source plate that is placed between two drift chambers. By measuring helical trajectories of two beta-rays using drift chambers, one can extract full kinematics of a double beta decay. DCBA experiment is performed at KEK, Japan. Current experiment named DCBA-T2.5, is running since 2011. In this session, we present current status of the DCBA experiment and we also present the future project, Magnetic Tracking Detector (MTD) experiment.
