The Borexino detector measures solar neutrino fluxes via neutrino-electron elastic scattering. Observed spectra are determined by the solar-νe survival probability Pee(E), and the chiral couplings of the neutrino and electron. Some theories of physics beyond the Standard Model postulate the existence of Non-Standard Interactions (NSI’s) which modify the chiral couplings and Pee(E). In this paper, we search for such NSI’s, in particular, flavor-diagonal neutral current interactions that modify… 

The SNO Low Energy Threshold Analysis and Combined Fits of Neutrino Oscillation Parameters

The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) Collaboration has reanalyzed the data from the first two phases of the experiment – the pure heavy water and salt phases – in order to extend the acceptance of

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

First evidence of pep solar neutrinos by direct detection in Borexino

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.

Understanding the Sun: Borexino

Solar neutrinos have been detected over the past 40 years providing the first evidence of physics beyond the Standard Model for elementary particle interactions. The hypothesis of neutrino

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.

Borexino: recent solar and terrestrial neutrino results

Borexino is a multi-ton organic liquid scintillator detector at the underground-based Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, Italy. Due to the unprecedented ultra-low background levels and a stable

Final results of Borexino Phase-I on low-energy solar neutrino spectroscopy

Borexino has been running since May 2007 at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso laboratory in Italy with the primary goal of detecting solar neutrinos. The detector, a large, unsegmented liquid

Measurement of the νe and total 8B solar neutrino fluxes with the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory phase-III data set

This paper details the solar neutrino analysis of the 385.17-day phase-III data set acquired by the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO). An array of He-3 proportional counters was installed in the

Precise determination of the unperturbed 8B neutrino spectrum.

The neutrino spectrum is for the first time directly extracted from the measured final state distribution, thus avoiding the uncertainties related to the extrapolation of R-matrix fits and leading to an improvement of the overall errors and the extension of the neutrinos spectrum at high energy.

Pseudo-Dirac Neutrinos in the New Standard Model

The addition of gauge-singlet fermions to the standard model Lagrangian renders the neutrinos massive and allows one to explain all that is experimentally known about neutrino masses and lepton

Solar models, neutrino experiments, and helioseismology

The event rates and their recognized uncertainties are calculated for eleven solar neutrino experiments using accurate solar models. The same solar models are used to evaluate the frequency spectrum

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.

Earth Matter Effect in 7Be Solar Neutrino Experiments

We determine the sensitivity of the KamLAND and Borexino experiments to the neutrino regeneration effect in the Earth as a function of Delta m^2 and theta, using realistic numbers for the signal and

Vacuum oscillation solution to the solar neutrino problem in standard and nonstandard pictures.

It is shown that the fit of the experimental data in the just-so scenario is not very good for any reasonable value of the {sup 8}B neutrino flux, but it substantially improves if the nonstandard {tau}-neutrino--electron interaction is included.

Solar-neutrino solutions with matter-enhanced flavor-changing neutral-current scattering.

The regions in parameter space that give consistency between the standard solar model and existing solar-neutrino data from the Homestake and Kamiokande-II experiments are determined, and the corresponding predictions for future experiments with gallium and superfluid helium detectors are given.

First Results from KamLAND: Evidence for Reactor Anti-Neutrino Disappearance

KamLAND has been used to measure the flux of ¯ ν e ’s from distant nuclear reactors. In an exposure of 162 ton · yr (145.1 days) the ratio of the number of observed inverse β -decay events to the
