Measurement of the Uranium-235 Antineutrino Spectrum by PROSPECT

Not scheduled
10m

Speaker

Mr Benjamin Foust (Yale University)

Description

The Precision Reactor Oscillation and SPECTrum experiment, or PROSPECT, detector is designed to accurately measure the $^{235}$U antineutrino energy spectrum. The detector is located at the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), an 85 MW highly-enriched uranium (HEU) reactor with short reactor-on periods, such that over 99% of the antineutrino flux comes from $^{235}$U.

This poster presents the latest spectral results from PROSPECT. We compare the resulting spectrum to model predictions, and test the contribution of $^{235}$U towards potential high energy excess as seen in previous spectral measurements performed at nuclear power reactors.
