This paper reviews the constraints on the solar neutrino mixing parameters with data collected by the Homestake, SAGE, GALLEX, Kamiokande, SuperKamiokande, and SNO experiments. An emphasis will be given to the global solar neutrino analyses in terms of matter-enhanced oscillation of two active flavors. The results to-date, including both solar model dependent and independent measurements, indicate that electron neutrinos are changing to other active types on route to the Earth from the Sun. The… 

Observing Muon Neutrino to Electron Neutrino Oscillations in the NOνA Experiment

Neutrino oscillations offers an insight on new physics beyond the Standard Model. The three mixing angles (θ12, θ13 and θ23) and the two mass splittings (∆m 2 12 and ∆m 2 23) have been measured by

Speeding Up Dark Matter With Solar Neutrinos

We present a novel mechanism of using solar neutrinos to speed up dark matter, inspired by the fact that neutrinos are the most energetic particles from the Sun with a well-understood spectrum. In a

Detection techniques and investigation of different neutrino experiments

Neutrino physics is an experimentally driven field. So, we investigate the different detection techniques available in the literature and study the various neutrino oscillation experiments in a

The Solar Neutrino Problem

Since neutrinos are the only known particles being able to leave the core of the Sun directly, they were supposed to approve the Standard Solar Model. However, the number of detected neutrinos was

Inverse beta decay and coherent elastic neutrino nucleus scattering – a comparison

Many neutrino experiments involving low-energy neutrinos rely on inverse beta decay (IBD), including those studying neutrino oscillations at nuclear reactors, and for applications in reactor

Search for boosted dark matter with high-Z material in underground experiments

We propose to search for a boosted dark matter (DM) particle from astrophysical sources using an emulsion detector in deep underground facilities. We further propose using high-$Z$ material such as

A search for solar dark matter with the IceCube neutrino detector : Advances in data treatment and analysis technique

There is compelling observational evidence for the existence of dark matter in the Universe, including our own Galaxy, which could possibly consist of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) n

Spontaneous symmetry breaking in collective neutrino oscillations

We explore the phenomenon of spontaneous symmetry breaking in the context of collective neutrino flavor oscillations. Namely, we investigate the spontaneous breaking of isotropy in a homogeneous gas

Neutrino physics at accelerators

Present and future neutrino experiments at accelerators are mainly concerned with understanding the neutrino oscillation phenomenon and its implications. Here a brief account of neutrino oscillations

On the angular distribution of IceCube high-energy events

The detection of high-energy astro-physical neutrinos of extraterrestrial origin by the IceCube neutrino observatory in Antarctica has opened a unique window to the cosmos that may help to probe both



Measurement of the Solar Electron Neutrino Flux with the Homestake Chlorine Detector

The Homestake Solar Neutrino Detector, based on the inverse beta-decay reaction νe +37Cl →37Ar + e-, has been measuring the flux of solar neutrinos since 1970. The experiment has operated in a stable

Measurement of day and night neutrino energy spectra at SNO and constraints on neutrino mixing parameters.

The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) has measured day and night solar neutrino energy spectra and rates, and a global solar neutRino analysis in terms of matter-enhanced oscillations of two active flavors strongly favors the large mixing angle solution.

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

Solar 8B and hep neutrino measurements from 1258 days of Super-Kamiokande data.

Solar neutrino measurements from 1258 days of data from the Super-Kamiokande detector are presented and the recoil electron energy spectrum is consistent with no spectral distortion.

Search for v̄e from the Sun at Super-Kamiokande-I

We present the results of a search for low energy (reconstructed total positron energy = 5-20MeV) ¯ νe from the Sun using 1496 days of data from SuperKamiokande-I. We observe no significant excess of

First results from KamLAND: evidence for reactor antineutrino disappearance.

In the context of two-flavor neutrino oscillations with CPT invariance, all solutions to the solar neutrinos problem except for the "large mixing angle" region are excluded.

The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory

A description is given of the proposed Sudbury Neutrino Observatory based on a 1000 tonne heavy water Cherenkov detector which is being designed. This detector would allow the measurement of

Neutrino Oscillations in Matter

The effect of coherent forward scattering must be taken into account when considering the oscillations of neutrinos traveling through matter. In particular, for the case of massless neutrinos for
