Abstract

A very high radiopurity level of its scintillator and detector location far away from the European nuclear reactors makes Borexino a very sensitive tool for antineutrino studies. Spectral contributions corresponding to two known antineutrino sources were reported in a recently published paper [1]: ¯e’s produced in European nuclear reactors and geo-neutrinos, produced in decays of isotopes along the decay chains of long-lived 238U and 232Th distributed within the Earth’s interior. A sensitive search for other antineutrino sources has been performed.
