We quantify the amount of data needed in order to measure the size and position of the ^{8}B neutrino production region within the solar core, for experiments looking at elastic scattering between electrons and solar neutrinos. The directions of the electrons immediately after scattering are strongly correlated with the incident directions of the neutrinos; however, this is degraded significantly by the subsequent scattering of these electrons in the detector medium. We generate distributions…

Dark matter imprint onB8neutrino spectrum

The next generation of solar neutrino detectors will provide a precision measure of the B8 electron-neutrino spectrum in the energy range from 1–15 MeV. Although the neutrino spectrum emitted by B8

MONTE CARLO SIMULATIONS OF A NEAR-SOLAR ORBIT NEUTRINO

Neutrinos—weakly interacting subatomic particles often resultant of nuclear processes, including hydrogen fusion—are the only direct insight into the core of the Sun. Previously constructed neutrino

CNO neutrino Grand Prix: the race to solve the solar metallicity problem

Several next-generation experiments aim to make the first measurement of the neutrino flux from the Carbon-Nitrogen-Oxygen (CNO) solar fusion cycle. We calculate how much time these experiments will

Taking neutrino pictures via electrons

In this paper we discuss the prospects to take a picture of an extended neutrino source, i.e., resolving its angular neutrino luminosity distribution. This is challenging since neutrino directions

Solar and atmospheric neutrinos in Super-Kamiokande

The Super-Kamiokande (SK) water Cherenkov detector has been operating for nearly 12 years collecting data for the study of both solar and atmospheric neutrinos as well as searching for neutrinos from

The Super-Kamiokande Collaboration

A total of 614 upward through-going muons of minimum energy 1.6 GeV are observed by Super-Kamiokande during 537 detector live days. The measured muon flux is (1.74 ± 0.07(stat.) ± 0.02(sys.)) × 10
