Geo-neutrino results with Borexino

Borexino is a liquid scintillator detector primary designed to observe solar neutrinos. Due to its low background level as well as its position in a nuclear free country, Italy, Borexino is also

Spectroscopy of geoneutrinos from 2056 days of Borexino data

We report an improved geoneutrino measurement with Borexino from 2056 days of data taking. The present exposure is (5.5±0.3)×1031  proton×yr. Assuming a chondritic Th/U mass ratio of 3.9, we obtain

Borexino Results on Neutrinos from the Sun and Earth

Borexino is a 280-ton liquid scintillator detector located at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso in Italy. Since the start of its data-taking in May 2007, it has provided several measurements of

Modulations of the cosmic muon signal in ten years of Borexino data

We have measured the flux of cosmic muons in the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso at 3800 m w.e. to be (3.432 ± 0.003)⋅ 10−4 m−2s−1 based on ten years of Borexino data acquired between May 2007

Expected geoneutrino signal at JUNO

Constraints on the Earth’s composition and on its radiogenic energy budget come from the detection of geoneutrinos. The Kamioka Liquid scintillator Antineutrino Detector (KamLAND) and Borexino

Borexino: recent solar and terrestrial neutrino results

Borexino is a multi-ton organic liquid scintillator detector at the underground-based Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, Italy. Due to the unprecedented ultra-low background levels and a stable

Cosmogenic Backgrounds in Borexino at 3800 m water-equivalent depth

The solar neutrino experiment Borexino, which is located in the Gran Sasso underground laboratories, is in a unique position to study muon-induced backgrounds in an organic liquid scintillator. In

Hanohano: A Deep Ocean Anti-Neutrino Detector for Unique Neutrino Physics and Geophysics Studies

The science potential of a 10 kiloton deep-ocean liquid scintillation detector for ~1 MeV energy scale electron anti-neutrinos has been studied. Such an instrument, designed to be portable and

Precision measurement of neutrino oscillation parameters with KamLAND.

The KamLAND experiment has determined a precise value for the neutrino oscillation parameter Deltam21(2) and stringent constraints on theta12 and analysis of the reactor spectrum above the inverse beta decay energy threshold, and including geoneutrinos, gives a best fit.

The Borexino Collaboration

The Borexino detector measures solar neutrino fluxes via neutrino-electron elastic scattering. Observed spectra are determined by the solar-νe survival probability Pee(E), and the chiral couplings of
