New 13C(α,n)16O Cross Section with implications for Neutrino Mixing

Published: August 2020 Wiescher

Lead Author(s): M. Febbraro

Precise antineutrino measurements that constrain the neutrino mixing angles and geoneutrino spectra are all very sensitive to background induced by the 13C(α,n)16O reaction. A new measurement of this reaction cross section, performed at the University of Notre Dame, improves the estimate of this significant background for large anti-neutrino detectors. Learn more
