SNO+ Solar Neutrino Measurement from an Extended Water Data Set

Not scheduled
10m

Speaker

Mr Brian Krar (Queen's University)

Description

SNO+ is a multipurpose and multiphase neutrino experiment located approximately 2 km underground at the SNOLAB facility in Sudbury, Canada. Neutrinos from $^8$B $ \beta^+$ decay, which dominate the high energy portion of the solar neutrino spectrum, can be measured in the initial SNO+ water phase by identifying electron elastic scattering (ES) events in a pure water target. One such analysis has previously been performed on an initial 69.2 kT-day dataset, showing an extremely pure sample of ES events above 6 MeV. This poster describes the water phase solar neutrino analysis including an updated $^8$B solar neutrino measurement using an extended water dataset, which is compelling due to a lower background rate and increased livetime.
