Unveiling the engine of the Sun: Measurements of the pp-chain and CNO-cycle solar neutrinos with Borexino (JINA-CEE – IReNA Online Seminar)
Thanks to its extraordinary radiopurity, Borexino observed the two main fusion reactions in stars and will soon weigh in on a controversy relating to the birth of the Sun that challenges the SSM (G.Bellini & A.Ianni on CERN Courier)
Recent Borexino results, pp and CNO cycles explained for general public in this nice video by Anton Petrov.
Simultaneous precision spectroscopy of pp, 7Be and pep solar neutrinos with Borexino Phase-II Phys. Rev. D 100, Issue 8 , 082004 – 15 October 2019 [doi:10.1103/PhysRevD.100.082004] Abstract We present the simultaneous measurement of the interaction rates pp, RBe, Rpep of pp, 7Be, and pep solar neutrinos performed with a global fit to the
