The Monte Carlo simulation of the Borexino detector

Borexino is a 300 ton sub-MeV liquid scintillator solar neutrino detector which has been running at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso (Italy) since 2007. Thanks to its unprecedented

Borexino calibrations: hardware, methods, and results

Borexino was the first experiment to detect solar neutrinos in real-time in the sub-MeV region. In order to achieve high precision in the determination of neutrino rates, the detector design includes

Measurement of the pep and CNO solar neutrino interaction rates in Borexino-I

The Borexino detector at Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso is a low-background liquid scintillator calorimeter designed to measure the flux of low-energy solar neutrinos. Thanks to the low

Solar Neutrinos

The study of solar neutrinos has given a fundamental contribution both to astroparticle and to elementary particle physics, offering an ideal test of solar models and offering at the same time

Production and characterization of 228Th calibration sources with low neutron emission for GERDA

The GERDA experiment at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso (LNGS) searches for the neutrinoless double beta decay of 76Ge. In view of the GERDA Phase II data collection, four new 228Th

Deep underground neutron flux measurement with large BF3 counters

SummaryIn this paper, we present deep underground neutron flux measurements performed by large BF3 counters in the Gran Sasso underground laboratory. A neutron flux of (1.08±0.02)·10−6 cm−2 s−1 for

First evidence of pep solar neutrinos by direct detection in Borexino

TLDR
The observed solar neutrinos in the 1.0-1.5 MeV energy range represents the first direct evidence of the pep neutrino signal and the strongest constraint of the CNO solar neutRino flux to date.
