The 8 B solar neutrino flux inferred from a global analysis of solar neutrino experiments is within 11% (1 s) of the predicted standard solar model value if only active neutrinos exist, but could be as large as 1.7 times the standard prediction if sterile neutrinos exist. We show that the total 8 B neutrino flux ~active plus sterile neutrinos! can be determined experimentally to about 10% (1s) by combining charged current measurements made with the KamLAND reactor experiment and with the SNO CC… CONTINUE READING
