About this product
- DescriptionSolar neutri experiments have proved to be sensitive tools to test both astrophysical and elementary particle physics models. Neutris coming from the Sun offer a window into the inner workings of our star. Both the first evidence and the first discoveries of neutri oscillations have come from experiments which detected neutris from the Sun. The Borexi experiment at Laboratory Nazionali del Gran Sasso is designed to perform solar neutri spectroscopy below 2 MeV. The key feature that allows Borexi to pursue this physics program is its ultra low background level. This thesis is devoted to the first direct measurement of the pep and CNO solar neutri interaction rates in the Borexi experiment. The detection of the rare signals from pep and CNO solar neutris in Borexi requires vel analysis techniques, as the signal interaction rate in the active target is only a few counts per day, while the dominant background in the relevant energy region, the cosmogenic beta+ emitter carbon-11, produced in Borexi by cosmic muon interactions, is about 10 times higher.
- Author BiographyStefano Davini's interests lie at the intersection of particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology. His first important research experience was at the Borexino experiment at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, which became the basis for both his undergraduate (2008) and PhD theses (2012). He is currently also involved in the DarkSide experiment at Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, which aims to use a low backround underground Argon detector and an active neutron veto for the possible detection of dark matter particles.
