Energy and Spatial Resolution of a Large-Volume Liquid-Scintillator Detector O. Ju. Smirnov Instruments and Experimental Techniques Vol.46 No.2, 327–344 (2003) doi:10.1023/A:1024458203966 [local copy] Abstract The energy and spatial resolution of a large-volume liquid-scintillator detector has been investigated. The relations have

An analytical approach to the description of absorption and reemission effects in large scintillation counters Gioacchino Ranucci Nuclear Instruments and Methods – A Volume 440, Issue 2, 1 February 2000, Pages 388-396 – ISSN 0168-9002 doi:10.1016/S0168-9002(99)00927-4 [local copy] Abstract It
CTF achieved records in the domain of ultra-low background, large volume detectors. These encouraging results point towards the feasibility of detectors like Borexino.
The proposal for “BOREX” (BORon solar neutrino EXperiment). Such experiment was never realized. While different in concept, goals and design, Borexino was named after it.
