With its heavy water target, the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory has the unique
opportunity to measure both the 5B flux of electron neutrinos from the Sun and
the flux of all active neutrino species independently, thus offering a direct and
model-independent test of a neutrino oscillation solution to the solar neutrino
problem. We report on the physics intent and design of a discrete method of
neutral-current detection in the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory that will utilize
ultra-low background 3He proportional counters dispersed throughout the heavy
water volume. Projections of background in all components of the detector are
considered in an analysis of our ability to extract the neutral-current signal and
the neutral-current to charged-current ratio.
Here’s what’s next.
