Dark matter imprint onB8neutrino spectrum

The next generation of solar neutrino detectors will provide a precision measure of the B8 electron-neutrino spectrum in the energy range from 1–15 MeV. Although the neutrino spectrum emitted by B8

New neutrino physics and the altered shapes of solar neutrino spectra

Neutrinos coming from the Sun's core are now measured with a high precision, and fundamental neutrino oscillations parameters are determined with a good accuracy. In this work, we estimate the impact

Studies of Proton Recoils in Organic Liquid Scintillators Used in Present and Future Neutrino Experiments

Various organic liquid scintillators were experimentally studied with respect to their response to proton recoils. The measurements were performed at the Maier-Leibnitz-Laboratorium using a pulsed

Oscillations of the $^7$Be solar neutrinos inside the Earth

We explore in detail oscillations of the solar $^7$Be neutrinos in the matter of the Earth. The depth of oscillations is about $(0.1 - 0.2)\%$ and the length $\approx 30$ km. The period of the

New Power to Measure Supernova $\nu_e$ with Large Liquid Scintillator Detectors

We examine the prospects for detecting supernova $\nu_e$ in JUNO, RENO-50, LENA, or other approved or proposed large liquid scintillator detectors. The main detection channels for supernova $\nu_e$

A new scheme for short baseline electron antineutrino disappearance study

A new scheme for the short baseline electron antineutrino (${\bar{\nu}}_{e}$) disappearance study is investigated. We propose to use an intense neutron emitter, $^{252}$Cf, which produces $^{8}$Li

Liquid scintillation analysis: principles and practice

Topological Track Reconstruction in Liquid Scintillator and LENA as a Far-Detector in an LBNO Experiment

Unsegmented liquid scintillator (LSc) neutrino detectors have proven to be successful instruments of neutrino physics. They usually measure terrestrial and astrophysical low-energy (LE) neutrinos and



Monte Carlo Study of Solar $^8$B Neutrinos and the Diffuse Supernova Neutrino Background in LENA

In the present work, the measurement of solar B8 neutrinos with LENA, a proposed 50kt liquid scintillator detector, was studied. It was found that the upturn of the B8 spectrum, which is predicted by

Measurement of the solar neutrino capture rate with gallium metal. III:2002-2007

The Sun produces its energy by the nuclear fusion of four protons into an α particle, chains of reactions that yield two positrons and two neutrinos. Since these lowenergy neutrinos are weakly

Solar Neutrino Observables Sensitive to Matter Effects

We discuss constraints on the coefficient which is introduced to simulate the effect of weaker or stronger matter potential for electron neutrinos with the current and future solar neutrino data. The

Measurement of the νe and total 8B solar neutrino fluxes with the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory phase-III data set

This paper details the solar neutrino analysis of the 385.17-day phase-III data set acquired by the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO). An array of He-3 proportional counters was installed in the

Low Energy Neutrinos as geological and astrophysical Messengers

Future neutrino experiments will open up exciting possibilities to use neutrinos as messengers from diverse sources. A special focus of this thesis is put on neutrinos from the Earth's interior, the

13C as a solar neutrino detector

Solar models, neutrino experiments, and helioseismology

The event rates and their recognized uncertainties are calculated for eleven solar neutrino experiments using accurate solar models. The same solar models are used to evaluate the frequency spectrum

Measurement of the solar neutrino capture rate with gallium metal

The solar neutrino capture rate measured by the Russian-American Gallium Experiment (SAGE) on metallic gallium during the period January 1990 through December 1997 is 67 . 2 +7 . 2+3 . 5 − 7 . 0 − 3
