vIOLETA: Neutrino Interaction Observation with a Low Energy Threshold Array

Not scheduled

The large number of opportunities to study non-standard neutrinos interaction in the low energy range --below the inverse beta decay process-- along with the observation of the CEvNs interaction, have witnessed a growing interest during the last years. In this contest, we propose a short baseline reactor neutrino experiment to cover three orders of magnitude of unexplored energy range for neutrino interaction using 10 kg of Skipper-CCD detectors with an energy threshold of approximately 1 eV. We discuss constraints to the SM and also benchmark beyond SM. In particular, we claim that our prospective for the exposure time required for observing the CEvNs at a 90% of confidence level at one of the most powerful nuclear reactors available in Argentina is only 1.5 days.
