Lithium detectors have a high sensitivity to CNO neutrinos from the Sun. The present experimental data and prospects for future experiments on the detection of CNO neutrinos are discussed. A nonstationary case is considered when the flux of 13N neutrinos is higher than the standard solar model predicts due to the influx of fresh material from the peripheral layers to the solar core.

Everything under the Sun: A review of solar neutrinos
Solar neutrinos offer a unique opportunity to study the interaction of neutrinos with matter, a sensitive search for potential new physics effects, and a probe of solar structure and solar system


New results on solar neutrino fluxes from 192 days of Borexino data
We report the direct measurement of the 7Be solar neutrino signal rate performed with the Borexino detector at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso. The interaction rate of the 0.862 MeV 7Be
What next with solar neutrinos
The capture rate of solar neutrinos is estimated for a number of targets that have been suggested previously as possible detectors of solar neutrinos. It is shown that the most important feasible
CN-Cycle Neutrinos and Solar Metalicity
We discuss the current Standard Solar Model conflict between helioseismology and photospheric abundances, a speculation that connects this anomaly to formation of the gaseous giant planets, and a
Solar models with helium and heavy-element diffusion
Helium and heavy-element diffusion are both included in precise calculations of solar models. In addition, improvements in the input data for solar interior models are described for nuclear reaction
CN Cycle Solar Neutrinos and the Sun's Primordial Core Metallicity
We argue that it may be possible to exploit neutrinos from the CN cycle and p-p chain to determine the primordial solar core abundances of C and N at an interesting level of precision. Such a
Solar Models: Current Epoch and Time Dependences, Neutrinos, and Helioseismological Properties
We calculate accurate solar models and report the detailed time dependences of important solar quantities. We use helioseismology to constrain the luminosity evolution of the Sun and report the
First measurement of the 14N(p,γ)15O cross section down to 70 keV
Abstract In stars with temperatures above 20 × 10 6 K , hydrogen burning is dominated by the CNO cycle. Its rate is determined by the slowest process, the 14N(p, γ)15O reaction. Deep underground in
Standard Solar Composition
We review the current status of our knowledge of the chemical composition of the Sun, essentially derived from the analysis of the solar photospheric spectrum. The comparison of solar and meteoritic
Dynamical processes in the solar radiative interior
Recent seismic observations coming from acoustic and gravity modes clearly show that the solar standard model has reached its limits and can no longer be used to interpret satisfactorily seismic
What do we (not) know theoretically about solar neutrino fluxes?
Solar model predictions of 8B and p-p neutrinos agree with the experimentally determined fluxes, and improved input data is used for nuclear fusion reactions, the equation of state, and the chemical composition of the Sun.
