Study of the possibility to observe low energy solar neutrino's

Project Details


One of the most omportant problems in experimental subnuclear physics is the clarification of the solar neutrino problem. We propose to study and evaluate a new method to observe solar neutrino's. This method allows the direct observation of the neutrino's produced in the basic pp reaction in the sun. The method is based on the observation of nuclear transistion induced in 160Gd. the target material is GSO: Ce scintillatir. An international consortium of 12 laboratories had proposed an experiment based on thsi idea.
