As is well known, the comparison of the solar neutrino fluxes measured in SuperKamiokande (SK) by $\ensuremath{\nu}{+e}^{\ensuremath{-}}\ensuremath{\rightarrow}\ensuremath{\nu}{+e}^{\ensuremath{-}}$ and in the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) by ${\ensuremath{\nu}}_{e}+\stackrel{\ensuremath{\rightarrow}}{d}{e}^{\ensuremath{-}}+p+p$ can provide a ``smoking gun'' signature for neutrino oscillations as the solution to the solar neutrino puzzle. This occurs because SK has some sensitivity to all… Expand
Electron energy spectra, fluxes, and day-night asymmetries of 8B solar neutrinos from measurements with NaCl dissolved in the heavy-water detector at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory
Results are reported from the complete salt phase of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory experiment in which NaCl was dissolved in the {sup 2}H{sub 2}O (''D{sub 2}O'') target. The addition of saltExpand
Evidence for Neutrino Oscillations in the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory
The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) is a large-volume heavy water Cerenkov detector designed to resolve the solar neutrino problem. SNO observes charged-current interactions with electronExpand
DUNE as the Next-Generation Solar Neutrino Experiment.
We show that the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), with significant but feasible new efforts, has the potential to deliver world-leading results in solar neutrinos. With a 100  kton-yrExpand
Constraining the leading weak axial two-body current by SNO and Super-K
We analyze the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) and Super-Kamiokande (SK) data on charged current (CC), neutral current (NC) and neutrino electron elastic scattering (ES) reactions to constrain theExpand
Constraints on axial two-body currents from solar neutrino data
We briefly review recent calculations of neutrino deuteron cross sections within the effective field theory and traditional potential model approaches. We summarize recent efforts to determine theExpand
Constraints on two-body axial currents from reactor antineutrino–deuteron breakup reactions
Abstract We discuss how to reduce theoretical uncertainties in the neutrino–deuteron breakup cross-sections crucial to the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory's efforts to measure the solar neutrino flux.Expand
Exact analysis of the combined data of SNO and Super-Kamiokande
Abstract Comparison of solar-neutrino signals in SNO [Phys. Rev. Lett. 87 (2001) 071301] and Super-Kamiokande (SK) [Phys. Rev. Lett. 86 (2001) 5651] detectors results in discovery of νe→νμ,τExpand
A search for matter enhanced neutrino oscillations through measurements of day and night solar neutrino fluxes at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory

Present and future bounds on non-standard neutrino interactions
We consider Non-Standard neutrino Interactions (NSI), described by four-fermion operators of the form (αγνβ)(γf), where f is an electron or first generation quark. We assume these operators areExpand
Status of a hybrid three-neutrino interpretation of neutrino data
We re-analyse the non-standard interaction (NSI) solutions to the solar neutrino problem in the light of the latest solar as well as atmospheric neutrino data. The latter require oscillations (OSC),Expand
