: The MeV region of antineutrino energy is of special interest for physics research and for monitoring nuclear nonproliferation. Whereas liquid scintillation detectors are typically used to detect the Inverse Beta Decay (IBD), it has recently been proposed to detect it with a liquid-organic Time Projection Chamber, which could allow a full reconstruction of the particle tracks of the IBD final state. We present the first comprehensive simulation-based study of the expected signatures. Their…

Antineutrino Detection Techniques for Monitoring Long-Term Geological Repositories

The radioactive nuclear waste produced in the past decades contains many significant quantities of plutonium, one of the key ingredients for manufacturing nuclear weapons. For the first few hundreds

First results on ProtoDUNE-SP liquid argon time projection chamber performance from a beam test at the CERN Neutrino Platform

The ProtoDUNE-SP detector is a single-phase liquid argon time projection chamber with an active volume of 7.2× 6.1× 7.0 m3. It is installed at the CERN Neutrino Platform in a specially-constructed

First Search for Short-Baseline Neutrino Oscillations at HFIR with PROSPECT.

A reactor model independent analysis of the inverse beta decay prompt energy spectrum as a function of baseline constrains significant portions of the previously allowed sterile neutrino oscillation parameter space at 95% confidence level and disfavors the best fit of the reactor antineutrino anomaly.

The ArgoNeuT Detector in the NuMI Low-Energy beam line at Fermilab

The ArgoNeuT liquid argon time projection chamber has collected thousands of neutrino and anti-neutrino events during an extended run period in the NuMI beam-line at Fermilab. This paper focuses on

Angular distribution of neutron inverse beta decay , n̄

The reactionn̄e1p ̃e 1n is very important for low-energy ( En&60 MeV) antineutrino experiments. In this paper we calculate the positron angular distribution, which at low energies is slightly

Angular distribution of neutron inverse beta decay, ν̄ e +p-->e + +n

The reaction νe+p→e++n is very important for low-energy (Eν≲60 MeV) antineutrino experiments. In this paper we calculate the positron angular distribution, which at low energies is slightly backward.

Antineutrino monitoring of spent nuclear fuel

Military and civilian applications of nuclear energy have left a significant amount of spent nuclear fuel over the past 70 years. Currently, in many countries world wide, the use of nuclear energy is
