Abstract Short distance reactor antineutrino experiments measure an antineutrino spectrum a few percent lower than expected from theoretical predictions. In this work we study the potential of low energy threshold reactor experiments in the context of a light sterile neutrino signal. We discuss the perspectives of the recently detected coherent elastic neutrino–nucleus scattering in future reactor antineutrino experiments. We find that the expectations to improve the current constraints on the… Expand
