In the last years, liquid-scintillator detectors have opened a new window for the observation of low-energetic astrophysical neutrino sources. In 2007, the solar neutrino experiment Borexino began its data-taking in the Gran Sasso underground laboratory. High energy resolution and excellent radioactive background conditions in the detector allow the first-time spectroscopic measurement of solar neutrinos in the sub-MeV energy regime. The experimental results of the Beryllium 7 neutrino flux…

Direct measurement of the 7Be solar neutrino flux with 192 days of borexino data.

This result is the first direct measurement of the survival probability for solar nu(e) in the transition region between matter-enhanced and vacuum-driven oscillations and improves the experimental determination of the flux of 7Be, pp, and CNO solarnu(e), and the limit on the effective neutrino magnetic moment using solar neutrinos.

Detection potential for the diffuse supernova neutrino background in the large liquid-scintillator detector LENA

The large-volume liquid-scintillator detector LENA (low energy neutrino astronomy) will provide high-grade background discrimination and enable the detection of diffuse supernova neutrinos (DSN) in

Measurement of the solar neutrino capture rate with gallium metal. III: Results for the 2002--2007 data-taking period

The Russian-American experiment SAGE began to measure the solar neutrino capture rate with a target of gallium metal in December 1989. Measurements have continued with only a few brief interruptions

Cosmogenic 11C production and sentivity of organic scintillator detectors to pep and CNO neutrinos

Several possible background sources determine the detectability of pep and CNO solar neutrinos in organic liquid scintillator detectors. Among such sources, the cosmogenic {sup 11}C nuclide plays a

Independent measurement of the total active 8B solar neutrino flux using an array of 3He proportional counters at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory.

The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory used an array of 3He proportional counters to measure the rate of neutral-current interactions in heavy water and precisely determined the total active (nu_x) 8B solar neutrino flux, in agreement with previous measurements and standard solar models.

Correlation of solar neutrino modulation with solar cycle variation in p-mode acoustic spectra

A tantalizing correlation (at the 0.97-0.999 level) between reported variations in low-order acoustic solar oscillations over the solar cycle from 1977 to 1988 and the event rate in the 37CI

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.

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.
