First measurement of reactor antineutrinos in scintillator at SNO+ and study of alternative designs for large-scale liquid scintillator detectors

Abstract:

This thesis presents the first measurement of oscillation in antineutrinos from nuclear reactor cores, detected in liquid scintillator at SNO+. The small cluster of reactor cores along the Canadian-American border creates a distinct oscillated antineutrino energy spectrum, from which oscillation parameter values can be extracted. A likelihood analysis is presented, measuring the sensitivity to neutrino oscillation parameter ∆m 221 based on 100 tonne-years exposure. The Covid-19 pandemic force...
